What You'll Get

After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Doña Rosa Bakery & Taqueria in Pasadena.

Doña Rosa Bakery & Taqueria serves up fresh, fast, and authentic Mexican favorites derived from owner Blair Salisbury's 100-year-old family recipes. Enjoy breakfast all day long with sweet baked goods ($1.30–$1.60), huevos rancheros ($7.10), or chilaquiles, a plate of scrambled eggs and crispy tortilla chips drenched in red or green sauce, queso fresco, and sour cream ($7.25). Domestic and imported beers ($3.50) or salt-garnished margaritas ($1.95–$4) wash down lunch and dinner burritos ($7.25) and tortas ($7.50) customized with an array of marinated meats, and vegetarian nachos ($7.75) sate those whose teeth tremble in anticipation for non-meated meals. Late-night shrimp soft tacos ($3.35) perfectly fit into mouth openings shaped like a shrimp soft taco and can be capped off with flan ($4).


LA Weekly reviewed Doña Rosa. Zagat rated the food "good to very good." Reviewers are mixed on the food, but praise the drinks and specials. More than 150 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, and Citysearchers give it three stars.

  • You will find decent tortas — baroquely garnished sandwiches of chicken, soft carnitas, or fried steak milanesa, among other things, on the bakery’s own bolillo rolls — and any number of shaped masa platforms (sopes, huaraches, gorditas) piled or stuffed with lettuce, crema and meat. The Doña [sic] Rosa burrito is a majestic creature, a stretchy tortilla stuffed with rice, black beans, avocado and an oozing, orange mass of beef fried in chorizo grease; the sort of burrito that will coat your teeth for a week and live in your insides like a frisky pet. – Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly
  • When you want to “grab” a meal without resorting to a drive-thru, this Mexican bakery and taqueria in Pasadena (an El Cholo spin-off) is a “nice alternative” – Zagat
