Rosa Maria's Mexican Cuisine

Rosa Maria’s Mexican Cuisine

Rosa Maria’s has been a huge sponsor for Redlands Sister Cities donating their time and lots of delicious food that has been a pinnacle for great business in the City of Redlands. Rosa Maria’s Drive In has now been serving the Inland Empire for 38  years.  With four locations to better serve you, they offer a variety of the best authentic Mexican food close to home.

They have 4 locations one in San Bernardino, Redlands, Highland, and in Fontana. All 4 locations bring incredible Mexican cuisine in each area at good prices and phenomenal service.

“So, the story begins with Jose and Guadalupe Robles, husband and wife. The foundation for them to be in the food service industry started when they didn’t even realize what a talent they possessed. Jose worked in the orange groves in Highland for many, many years. Guadalupe would prepare lunch (burritos) for her husband, children and even his co-workers.

After many years of working in the orange groves, they decided they wanted to open their own business. They were going to open a bakery with another family member. But, as luck would have it, the other family member with the knowledge of how to run a bakery, decided not to join in Joses plans.

But nonetheless, Jose and Lupe persisted with their vision of owning and operating their own business, but with a catch. The catch was not to open a bakery, but to open a Mexican restaurant. They would sell what they knew! Lupes famous burritos. And so, opportunity arose and the original San Bernardino location opened their doors on January 16, 1975.

Rosa Maria’s is now known for their authentic Mexican food. Hand dipped rellenos, homemade tortillas and the signature garbage burrito are just a few of the reasons for their success. Other factors include the commitment to the business by the Robles family. Although the siblings don’t always get along, they manage to always keep the drive alive! Growing up, all the kids put many work hours into making Rosa Maria’s what it is today.”
