Went with friends on a Wednesday night and had a great time. Our server, Jordan G, was excellent. The queso, chicken, and pork tacos were all delicious as well as their house salad with the cilantro-lime vinaigrette.

The avocado fries are wonderful! The white sangria is also very tasty. The salad was hearty, but the iceberg lettuce leaves much to be desired. The tacos were yummy!!! Great selection of food.

I don't see why they wouldn't! They definitely have the space to accommodate that amount of people! Give them a call! I would think they're just like anywhere else for that purpose! Congratulations!

Rockin Tacos does offer a gluten free menu. They use corn chips and corn tortillas instead of flour. Just ask your server. Enjoy your visit!
