With its sunny yellow walls, purple wainscoting and floral tablecloths, this two-room restaurant is a refreshing splash of color on the gritty Sheridan strip, with low prices that make it a popular spot for locals dining solo and on dates. The menu features regional Mexican dishes like caldo tlalpeno (simple, hearty chicken soup with avocado and lime wedges) and grilled chicken in tangy tomatillo and pumpkin-seed sauce, plus standards like tacos and tamales.
Thanks, Billyjoe for providing the Citysearch review. Does anyone have a first-hand report? Here is one from Yelp.We stopped back into Rolis this weekend. The food was still passable, but lots of stuff was too salty, and the chips were nowhere near as fresh as the first time we went in. Quality may still be a little uneven due to the newness of the owners/chef, so here's hoping they figure it out. Overall, still a good place to satisfy your basic Mexican food needs.

We used to eat at Rique's regularly. Tried Roli's once. Won't go back.

My husband and I have gone to Rolis twice now. We are so thankful to see a new small business in our neighborhood! The food is really good considering the affordable prices. My favorites so far are the guacamole and chips appetizer and the various taco plates they carry. It's BYOB. I'm not sure why other bloggers have dissed this place. I never went to Rique's so I can't compare them. Please try it yourself and develop your own thoughts.
Did Rique's get Roli's?(Sorry I have been trying to resist this for days!!)
