Margaritas and tacos are the perfect combination for a night out with a few friends, as long as you don’t get too carried away and end up spending all the money you had set aside for the $200 14-carat gold dog bowl set your sister put on her wedding registry. Fortunately, the portions at Rosy’s are big (you’ll get three overstuffed tacos for $10), and the margaritas are strong - so you’ll only need a couple of them to get the job done. All in all, it’s hard to walk out of here having spent any more than you probably would have spent on groceries to make your own subpar tacos.
