Today, Fat Rosie’s moves its beloved taco and tequila bar across the street in Downtown Naperville to provide a larger restaurant and more offerings for its customers. Now located at 22 E. Chicago Avenue, Suite 111 Naperville, IL 60540, Fat Rosie’s is a hip and festive family-friendly Mexican Taqueria, with a modern take on traditional Mexican cuisine and craft cocktails. Fat Rosie’s has been serving the Downtown Naperville community for the past four years.
The new 8,500 square foot Fat Rosie’s location – almost 3x the size of the previous location – will
transport you to Mexico with its traditional and unique décor, bringing in elements directly from Mexico
like alebrijes – hand-painted, brightly colored Mexican folk art of animals, an authentic thatched roof
palapa, and custom art throughout the restaurant.
The new location will provide all of the delicious offerings that has made Fat Rosie’s a destination
with their authentic antojitos (appetizers), platos (lunch and dinner plates), tacos, tamales, and their notorious el patron gordo burrito. New offerings available at the Downtown Naperville Fat Rosie’s location is their Ensenda Bar, proving that “en el mar, la vida es mas sabrosa” (“in the sea, life is tastier”).
Customers will find Consome de Camaron, Cachetona de Pulpo y Camarón, Ensenada san Quintín, Oysters, Botana Fat Rosie ‘s Mariscos y Ceviche de Dia. Fat Rosie’s provides a full bar, along with specialty cocktails.
“Naperville has always been a special place to me, opening my second restaurant here nearly 30 years
ago,” said Scott Harris, Founder and CEO of Scott Harris Hospitality. “We introduced an authentic and
fun Mexican experience to the community with Fat Rosie’s four years ago, and we have loved every
minute of it. We’re excited for Fat Rosie’s to be in a bigger location, so we can have even more fun.”
The new Naperville Fat Rosie’s location opens its doors on December 15, but will have its official Grand
Opening Fiesta on January 12, 2023, beginning at 4 pm with a celebratory ribbon cutting, food and drink
specials, entertainment, giveaways and more.
