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

Went for lunch, had been years since I'd been there. Ordered the veal Parmesan which came with 2 sides/ got salad and green beans. Also an order of Mac/cheese-which is their specialty. The quantity of food was enough for 3! Glad hubby suggested we split it it! Veal was good, green beans tasted canned. All food was average, just ALOT... More

Rocky's has been a local eatery for over 50 years. Their fried shrimp poboys are delicious. Stuffed artichokes, eggplant dressing, macaroni and cheese, red beans and rice are must taste dishes. Down-home Southern food. Noisy but fun!

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
