Ladies Invited!

In a world of political correctness and false manner Rocky and Carlo's is a hoot! We have been several times and I am always charmed by "ladies invited" and a little appalled by the Wop salad (but it's yummy so why quibble) it's not gourmet fare, it's hearty, HUGE portions (the reviews do not lie... read more

This place is absolutely amazing. Provides a real homey atmosphere. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely worth the trip if you're visiting New Orleans!

Best food ever. Mac n Cheese with Veal and brown gravy, (My Favorite). The Roast Beef and Gravy sandwiches are amazing. You cannot go wrong with Rocky's.

Great food, great servers, reasonable prices. Went last week at 7:30PM and the place was PACKED! Invited a co-worker and his wife who had never eaten there and they were amazed by the size of the plates - mountains of Mac and Cheese, and we ain't talking Kraft mac and cheese either. It's big tubes of macaroni with the cheese... More

This a a true jewel in "local cuisine" and one not visited by tourist. If you want HUGE sharing portions and great local food...this is your place.

We lived in chalmette for 40 years. Hadn't been to Rocky and Carlos since Katrina. Yesterday we decided to take a trip back for some good old Rockys. Definitely not the same. Yes the amount of food was great, the taste, definitely not the same. First the backed Mac was horrible. There was a lot of it but no taste.... More

If you go, order the Baked Mac and cheese with red gravy and veal cutlet. So yummy! This family uses recipes brought over from Sicily. Great food at a fair price.

Great food, a very laid back atmosphere. It's a common meeting place for locals to eat and get together. There's also a bar.

You get a lot of food. We went because it supposedly has the best macaroni and cheese. On the contrary, it was the worst...and there was a lot of it. On the up side, the staff is super friendly and helpful.
