Just like Rodgers and Hart, the Gershwins or Webber and Rice, Rosa's combination plates are a blend of perfection. You'll be humming a happy musical tune after sampling one of the 19 delicious choices on the menu. From the simple two shredded beef tacos, beef tamale and rice for $7 to carne asada served with all the fixings at $10.50, Rosa's list of combination plates offers something for everyone. Number 9 on the list, two chile rellenos, rice and beans, is a longtime show-stopper. But whether you want chile con carne, flautas or fajitas, Rosa's has a combination plate to meet everyone's taste. And you won't have to pay Broadway at 42nd Street prices for them, either.
