I dream about their Mac and cheese. I have tried to emulate their recipe and I can't even get close!🍴

We had heard raves about this place, but had never stopped. Boy, have we been missing great food. This place is bright and open, very clean and the service is friendly and efficient. But the FOOD!! The portions are enormous and there's something for everyone. We'll definitely return often.

What a wonderful surprise when our tour guide took us to Rocky & Carlo's for lunch! Be aware that their "individual" size sides are really "family-style" sides! In fact, everything is uber-huge! We want to return to NOLA just to eat at Rocky & Carlo's! Mufalettas, Fried Catfish, Fried Chicken, the Greens, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, and more are all... More

This is the kind of place that has homestyle cooking to die for! A full spectrum menu makes sure there is something for everyone--even the pickiest eaters! If you think you like Mac and Cheese, wait until you try theirs! You'll be able to tell right away, this definitely is not a place that serves up a bunch of canned... More

Words cannot describe the macaroni and cheese. Been eating there for many years. I highly recommend it for a good home cooked meal.

We'd heard about Rocky and Carlo's for a long time, but since it's not "on the way" to anywhere for us, we'd never been. So today we made a special hour and twenty minutes drive here and we were not disappointed. The portions are quite large and everything was delicious. The fried catfish couldn't have been fresher. We will be... More

You better be hungry when you go here. Portion sizes are huge! I have been eating their veal parmesan and baked macaroni since the 80's and it is amazing! Onion rings are thin cut and a must have also. They have updated the paint and decor a bit since a complete remodel post Katrina but the food is still as... More
