So Much Better Than Before!

I was so leery of visiting Rocky and Carlo's based on my first visit years ago and some of the previous reviews. It was worth the travel and my concerns were squashed! Even though there was a line when we arrived at 5:00 pm on (Lenten) Friday, the line moved quickly and the food was served almost... read more

This is a local institution. Some of the things may not fly right in New York, LA or Chicago but that is what makes this area interesting and different. The trip would not be complete without the Baked Macaroni (and yes it's different than mac n cheese - which come sin a box). There is enough to feed two people... More

We did not heed the advice. SHARE YOUR MEALS! We are stuffed and headed home with enough for two or more meals. Highly recommend

Excellent! Think twice about ordering per person. Four adults with four take out containers. We have enough leftover for a meal or two.

Get the roast beef poboy. It is the size of a large baby and delicious to the last bite. If that doesn't do it for you then choose from any number of southern favorites. All exceptional.

I grew up in the area and eating at rocky and Carlos was always a treat! And I still go back everyone I'm home to visit. My favorite is the macaroni and the meatballs.

Made a return visit to Rocky & Carlos, this time for an early dinner. We ordered a roast beef po boy and a side of macaroni and cheese and split the meal. (There was more than enough to share! This would be the biggest tip I would offer: consider sharing a meal as the portion sizes are VERY LARGE! If... More

We took a short trip out of New Orleans to have lunch at Rocky & Carlos. It was a good decision. The food is good and the service friendly and fast. I was especially impressed by the portions and the prices. I managed to taste the Muffaletta, macaroni and cheese, chicken and cooked cabbage, and all were great! Definitely worth... More

I've been eating here since you opened--1965? 1967? In fact, the "last meals" of my dying family members are more likely than not roast beef po-boys we bring them to eat on the bed they'll soon be dyin' in. Now while I know changes happen and you've struggled and risen above a lot of challenging times, please just always keep... More

I love Rocky & Carlos. I have been a faithful patron for many years. The plates offer enough food to feed a couple of people easily if not 3 or 4 in some cases! Even with the gossip about the kitchen I have been undeterred. I would have to say my favorite meal there is the fried oyster dinner or... More
