Philadelphia, PA - Rosy's Taco Bar is a combination of both a Mexican cantina and your cozy neighborhood tavern. The restaurant named after FDR’s half-brother James “Rosy” Roosevelt, who allegedly journeyed south of the border and fell in love with the food and culture.

While the entrance is small looking, the eatery is huge inside with a great deal of seating in the back, and the atmosphere is unique.
Chef Rodrigo Bolanos, who assisted Jose Garces on the line at El Vez is heading up the kitchen staff and turning out Latin-style dishes that includes al pastor and pollo tinga, a twist on the Korean barbeque tacos, grilled-spiced chicken wings, as well as Mexican specialty sandwiches. We tried the Nachos which were good at the same time the tacos were pretty standard. Nothing out of the ordinary, although the Korean tacos with Kim chi stood out.
For drinks grab a pitcher of margaritas for the perfect taco night! Rosy's offers up a house margarita on tap but strong, also a considerable serving of great blood orange mimosa as well. Rosy's located at 2220 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103
