You have to cross into Mexico to visit. We walk across the border as we don't like to drive in Mexico. I suggest going for lunch as we don't feel comfortable at night across the line.

Ate at La Roca Saturday May 13th, 2017. This restaurant has the most gorgeous and colorful atmosphere ever and the history of this place is awesome. Part of this structure was actually a jail many years ago. The service staff and food was exceptional. We ate several items on the menu including the skirt steak which was deliciously prepared!

There were three adults and eight teens on a Sunday lunch. The servers were soooo kind and good-natured with our teens. The teens really didn't know what they wanted, and their Spanish was only passable. Plus they were intimidated by the find dining atmosphere. The servers were so gracious and helpful. The huge ice cream desserts were a hit! I... More

This is a taste of old Nogales. Have you ever had Mexican food? Have you ever been to mexico? No? Then you haven't. Go to Ueta and buy some duty-free whiskey. Then go across the line and make a left. Ask anybody where LA Roca is and they will know. You are within 500 feet from the gate. They have... More

We had heard about La Roca from someTucson friends. Our friend was here visiting and we decided to give him a Mexico treat. A very nice cab driver took us there.. from the border about a ten minute drive. We were greeted by wonderful waiters and a trio of mariachi players. It was Sunday, so their buffet was featured along... More

Don't be fooled by the formal look. The food was great. Mexican dishes were very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is off the main strip, but well worth the short stroll. The staff was very attentive. The prices were surprisingly reasonable for the ambiance. We had two appetizers - chips and salsa and guacamole. My husband is not a fan of avocados, but he devoured the guacamole. Our entrees were delicious. We will definitely return if we are... More
