What's a hot bun? Your next meal. A fluffy homemade steamed bread stuffed with your choice of fillings.
Rosie's Hot Buns was an inexpensive restaurant in Monroe Village that specialized in "slow-cooked comfort food." They also offered unique baked goods such as "pillow cookies." They also offered catering and delivery.
They opened on May 1st, 2013 and they were open for both lunch and dinner.
The location was previously Hunan Wok.
They closed in February 2014.

2013-05-15 22:27:34 Just ate here for the first time. The service is quick, the staff is friendly and the food is tasty. With most menu items coming under $5, it's a perfect quick eats spot and provides a bang-for-your-buck (Personally recommend the corn pockets!). The restaurant itself is pretty spacious, but I'd love to see what it looks like when the renovations are all said and done. —bigwig
2013-06-06 10:53:31 My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch on a Saturday; I had a chicken spice roll (Indian-inspired) and a pork corn pocket (Mexican-inspired). I loved the flavors of both, the meat was tender, and they didn't skimp on the fillings. The buns individually are the perfect size for a snack, and 2 are enough for a meal. We'll definitely be going back to try the other varieties (and maybe a cookie or two)! —AdrienneDahler

2013-11-23 11:05:03 Are they REALLY open for lunch? Every time I go by at around noon, they are closed. These people obviously consider their 'posted hours' to nothing more than a general suggestion. —alex-c
2013-11-23 19:54:14 They were on hiatus for a couple of months for remodeling and working out some employee issues. —EileenF
2014-02-02 15:59:23 And....they are now closed. This time for real, it seems..... —alex-c
2014-02-02 17:10:58 Could have predicted that. Any business that can't even handle being open regular hours is obviously not going to last long. An indication of poor management and planning to say the least. —DottieHoffmann
2014-02-02 22:53:10 It sounded like they were having trouble keeping their employees for whatever reason. The manager left and then the place was closed for a while in the fall. It seemed as though there may have been periods where there wasn't anyone who actually knew how to cook the hot buns...the owner who was usually there when open did not appear to be a chef. Good food...a shame they couldn't make it work. —JoshStone
2014-02-03 06:34:37 Too bad. They were great for the location - good, cheap food. —EileenF
