Description: Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar serves the best authentic, fresh, and reasonably priced Mexican food featuring the simple recipes of everyday Mexican life. The corn tortillas are made by hand and cooked fresh on the comal just as they are made in kitchens throughout Mexico. Enjoy fresh guacamole prepared tableside. Order a Margarita mixed with housemade sour mix. Sample one of the 220 different Tequila's Rocco's keeps on hand (The Largest Selection in Florida). The bar is always busy and the crowd's energy level reaches a crescendo when "Rocco" himself does his now famous "TEQUILA DANCE" on top of the bar. Rocco's Tacos offers outdoor lakeside dining along beautiful Sand Lake. Come join the fun at Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar!!

They have the best guacamole I've ever eaten. They make it fresh right at your table. The chips are uniquely seasoned and delicious. The food was very good as well as the drinks.

It was very very packed and noisy. However, it is a Tequila bar so that is to be expected. It is a very fun atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend it for a first date or anything that you want to be intimate because you will not be able to hear one another. However, it is perfect for a fun night out with the girls.

We stopped by on a Friday around 5-6 p.m. for dinner. We tried the Mexican street corn (I had to literally pull globs of cheese off of it - and I like cheese but this was a bit much unless it's really supposed to be that "globby"? Corn was good though) and chips / salsa (not bad - chips seasoning had a pronounced smokey flavor you don't normally taste on chips), and tried the shrimp, black bean (had to request these as they weren't on the menu, I believe), and chorizo tacos. Overall, not bad but not that great. I think Tijuana Flats has more flavor. The restaurant's environment seemed lively and fun albeit we had to practically yell to hear each other over the crazy loud sounds of an exceptionally drunk girl who could be heard all the way from the bar literally shrieking repeatedly...but whatever, it's that kind of place. We probably would try it again but not rushing back anytime soon.

This is a very cool restaurant concept. The design is hip and fun, the service is good and the food is fresh and well done. Thumbs up all around.
I won't be surprised to see Rocco's Tacos popping up all over the country.
Well done!

This visit was our first and last. We dropped in for lunch during the week. We were greeted by our wait staff who was quite enthusiastic about Roccos. We were lucky to be in the best Mexican restaurant in town. We were lucky that it was a slow day, because normally they were quite busy at lunch. And it was taco month too? Ya dee ya dee yadaa. But we were excited. I always though liquor sales were the money maker at restaurants. However we were halfway through our lunch before our drinks arrived, even asking more than once for them. The wifes marguerita was fine although the cheapest was $9.50. Following my draft beer, I ordered one too. Once again he had to come by and say it was coming. And get this, our food and drinks were delivered by wait staff other than our waiter! He didn't earn anything. And if this establishment splits tips, well you other waiters and waitresses know where this is going. First and last time.

Not sure what all these 3 and 4 star reviews are about.... YUK, Three of us had dinner here tonight, one of three margaritas had a strong mildew taste which they did replace and was better. Guacamole is fantastic. Dinner was horrible - three of us had three different choices and all terrible for $77. The Racos Tacos are listed with many toppings and came with none. Service sucked - drop off the food and collect the check. The inside seating area is LOUD. SCREAMING LOUD. We should have enjoyed the drinks and guac and gone to Chipolte for something edible. REALLY HORRIBLE food. STAY AWAY unless you need a mold infusion, need to justify a hearing aid, or need to justify flushing some cash. Can I say YUK, YUK, YUK?
