“Great food you'll wait for”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The wait is long. Long. It's worth it. Phenomenal tacos and guacamole made right at your table. Just get there about an hour before you want to eat, and have a drink at the bar. Service was pretty good as we'll.

“Great family lunch ”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

We love Rocco's! The food and ambiance are great. It is our family 'a favorite place for a weekend lunch. Don't miss the guacamole, the steak tacos or the wet burrito.

“Average Mexican”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

We came here on a recommendation from the hotel. I wasn't super impressed. We were seated right away on a Saturday night despite it being busy which was nice. Our server Javier was excellent, very attentive and informative. Unfortunately the food was just average. I got a fish taco and carne asada taco. The carne asada was ok, not super flavorful. The fish taco was very fishy tasting. The rice and beans were good. My husband had a ground beef, a pork and a fish taco. He really liked the pork one. The drinks were good, a margarita and a glass of sangria. It was loud but not unbearably so. I thought the Mexican food would be a little better down here.

“Dinner on Las Olas Blvd”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Really enjoyed dinner at Rocco's Tacos. The inside was neatly decorated, with some unique lighting and decor. I felt this restaraunt was more tex-mex, than Mexican. But really good place, and I'd definately go back!

The highlight of the dinner was the freshly made guacomole. They have a server that makes it at the table - directly starting with the avocado!

I had the chimichanga, and it was delicious. Very crispy.

My wife had the enchiladas - also very delicious.

“Great ambiance, so-so food”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Drive past this place all the time and it's always packed. Ate there for the first time and was a bit disappointed. Margaritas were watery, chips a bit too thick and stale. Food bland and not authentic. Chile rellenos tasted like fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Ambience was lively and fun though.
