Fat Rosie’s is a tequila bar, it’s a taqueria, it’s a family-friendly place to enjoy Scott Harris’ modern take on Mexican street food, but most of all, it’s an homage to an old agave farmer’s faithful donkey.

Chef Scott Harris went to Mexico looking for inspiration to create a new Mexican restaurant he was planning to open in Naperville, IL. He found it on a rural agave farm in the form of a donkey named Fat Rosie that had been working the farm fields for more than 20 years. The agave farmer treated Fat Rosie as part of his family – after all, they had worked in the fields together for a very long time. Scott admired the relationship so much he decided that Fat Rosie’s should be the name of his new taco and tequila bar. To learn more visit fatrosies.com.
