I had the alligator tacos, they were very good. The salsa wasn’t that great, it tasted kind of burnt. Staff was very nice and we were there during off season. I can imagine they are very busy during peak season.

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!
