“Good Food, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Arrived before the crush so I had good service. Guacamole off the cart was excellent. The server was congenial, helpful and friendly. I had a burreto which was HUGE. Luckily I was advised to share it with my guest. Nice of the staff. Good advice.

I never new that there were that many types of Tequila. I tried one, which was recommended by the staff. Again, good advice.

What made the evening so enjoyable was the excellent attitude and service from the well trained staff. Thank you.

“Some very tasty food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Made the trip inland down the blvd from the beachfront. First impression , the interior is nicely decorated! Ceiling artwork is awesome. Our waitress( Melanie) was friendly and down to earth! My sons had some ??'s about menu items. She took the time to make sure they chose something she thought they would like! They left happy. I ordered the freshly made guacamole w/chips& salsa . That was awesome! They serve it in a stone bowl. I would have picked it up and licked it if I could. Great menu, great tasting food ,great prices and I would go again!

“Margaritas are not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Love the whole pitcher margarita idea but they do not live up to their value. The atmosphere and service are pretty great tho so I gotta give them that

“Good dinner with co-workers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Had dinner with small group of co-workers. Sat outside which was a bit noisy with traffic on Las Olas, but it was a nice night so no worries. Had the guacamole that is supposed to be made table side, but they are not allowed to bring the cart outside so ours was not. It was very good. Had a pitcher of the Cadillac Margaritas. Very tasty. For dinner, had one pork taco and one steak taco with a side of refried beans. Steak was very good, but not especially southwestern or Mexican flavored. Pork was a bit more seasoned, but somewhat dry. Would definitely try this restaurant again.

“Evening after beach day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

A friend who lives in FL told us that Rocco's Tacos is simply a must place to eat. Six of us arrived about 7p.m. on a Wednesday and waited 1-1/2hrs for a table. The atmosphere is unique but be warned that it is very loud. Service was excellent and it was amazing to watch our guacamole made at our table with our spice level in mind. Fresh, hot chips were brought to enjoy the dip. The meal was very inexpensive and surprising for the quality and quantity of food received. A great place for friends to meet but not for discussing business.
