Great Lunch

Our family ate at Rocky & Carlo's for lunch. The staff was very pleasant and the food was great. The portion sizes were huge. Three people could have ate off the shrimp dinner and baked macaroni. The onion rings were excellent. Always love these mama and papa type of establishments. Will be... read 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.

Rocky and Carlos is a wonderful place to visit and bring the family. Very well kept and worth the money for the visit. If you are not a local, it is a place you need to stop by and visit. Food is great for the family.

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
