Breakfast at Rosie’s

In: Eating

(map) Rosie’s has been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth, but there are still a few surprises here. For instance, they serve breakfast eight hours a day, starting at 6 am and going till 2. That’s perfect for us slackers sleepyheads who like to get up at the crack of noon. Second, the menu ranges all the way from Tex-Mex fare like menudo, lengua and chicharrones to breakfast tacos and even good pancakes, above. Hearty pancakes with those great, crisp-fried edges are served with a meaty, thick-sliced bacon.

There are several plates to choose from, like fajitas, migas and these huevos rancheros. Three eggs over easy were topped with the classic tomato/pepper/onion sauce. They’re served with refried beans and chunky potatoes mashed with black pepper.

You can create your own taco, or the menu lists eight different choices, including the “Suicide.” Turns out that’s a taco combining all the ingredients! This one is the chorizo-and-egg, slightly spicy and surprisingly hefty for two bucks.

If Polaroid hadn’t stopped making film, you could add your mug to Rosie’s Wall of Fame. Nowadays, just have fun hunting for Willie and Darrell Royal.

Biscuits are served either naked, or covered with sausage and cream gravy. You may need a nap after these.

Started eating at Rosie’s in 1973, when they were in the old one room gas station on the corner of 620 and 71. A few tables and a counter. Joe, Rosie’s husband, was the only one working there then. I’ve never had breakfast there but, that looks very good.

I ate there this weekend after seeing this post. Pancakes were cold, served on a cold plate with cold syrup. The breakfast tacos were good though.

Ed. Reply: Oh no! Sorry to hear that. I hope you told them so they can fix it.
