In Ques You Haven’t Heard
In September 2020, Brandon Julian stepped down as owner of his construction business to pursue new things — and promptly took over Rosita’s Tortillas. Initially, he faced pandemic-related staffing and supply shortages, but he recently regained his footing and decided to spice things up by revamping the menu.
A prime candidate for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, the restaurant is in a small strip mall at 1317 N. Sandhills Blvd., by the license plate agency.
Brandon created the new menu with the help of his family. It features authentic Mexican cuisine, with an emphasis on serving the freshest eats.
“None of the food is pre-made,” he said, including the hand-made corn tortillas. Thanks to the onsite butchery, the carniceria, even the meat is as fresh as it can be.
Brandon recommends the Carmelon, a meaty portion of steak, chorizo, chicken, and grilled onions served with a side of beans, rice, fried jalapenos, and a salad. If you’re looking for something that’s not a five-course meal, we like the steak sopes.
Whether you pop in for a meal, a fresh cut or some household necessities Brandon said he’s happy to, “help out the Hispanic community” by being one of the few grocer, butcher, taqueria, trios in Moore County.
Rosita’s takes card, cash, apple pay, and cash app for everything in the store and EBT for the grocer and butcher sections. Try out the carmelon and sopes for yourself at 1317 N Sandhills Blvd, Aberdeen. Preview the menu below or see it in full here.
