Rosie's Tamale House

13436 Highway 71W, Bee Cave, TX - (512) 263-5164
Posted By Michael Stern on 4/18/2015 5:28:00 AM
Rosie’s is a rough-and-tumble roadside eat-place that sells excellent Mexican food at rock-bottom prices. The lunch menu is a broad selection of homemade tamales, nachos, chalupas, burritos, and chili con queso. Tacos are available constructed in crisp corn, soft corn, or flour tortillas, and the choice of side dishes includes guacamole, red hot sauce, and green hot sauce.

During the week, Rosie’s opens at six am every day but Tuesday (when it is closed) to serve Mexican breakfasts that include plates of huevos rancheros, barbacoa, or carne guisada, as well as all sorts of breakfast tacos – name your filling. The choices include eggs, potatoes, beans, chorizo sausage, cheese, picadillo, and bacon. Breakfast tacos can be amended with discs of spicy sausage from nearby Elgin, Texas. Our favorite taco filling is migas, a combination of scrambled eggs, cheese, and broken-up pieces of crisp corn tortilla all cooked together until pieces of the tortilla begin to soften.

This breakfast taco is filled with migas, a mix of scrambled eggs, melted cheese, and broken up bits of corn tortilla.  A great way to start the day!

One of these is a mere snack; three or four are a meal ... and an affordable meal, to be sure.

We've often believed there is a corollary between expressive menus and exemplary roadfood.  Rosie's breakfast postings are a good example. (These prices are from several years ago.)
