NEXT STOP: Fat Rosie's Taco and Tequila Bar



HERE'S THE STORY ABOUT HOW THIS COLORFUL & SPICY TEQUILA BAR CAME TO BE

NAPERVILLE–Have you been? If not, you’re missing out, for sure! Fat Rosie’s is a fun, hip & festive family-friendly Mexican Taqueria featuring a modern take on traditional Mexican cuisine and craft cocktails. The story behind this place is adorably fun!


On a trip to Mexico after opening his first couple of restaurants, Chef/Proprietor, Scott Harris met a wonderful old Agave farmer with a dedicated pet donkey. This man’s steadfast donkey had worked alongside him in the Agave fields for over 20 years! While most people would disregard their work animal, the old man farmer treated Fat Rosie as part of the family. They had a rare and inseparable bond that had formed through the many years of hard work, sweat, and tears.



Scott admired the love and care that this old man had for his trusted donkey. He admired it so much in fact, that one night after many shots of tequila he promised the old farmer he would one day open a tequila bar and name it after the beloved donkey, Fat Rosie. And, he did just that.
