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!!

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed Rocco's! Rocco's was actually one of our trip highlights. I loved the decor, our server was very pleasant, drinks were pretty good, and the food was great. It was a tad pricey, but i generally don't mind paying for good food & service. The table made guacomole taste great and is a plus too. The only down side was attempting to make a night reservation, so instead we had lunch.

“Bring Ear Plugs and Plenty of Cash”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

This could be a great place but its so load its hard to enjoy. The prices are high but the food is really good. Its seems to be popular with the younger crowd that likes to yell at the person sitting next to them during basic conversation. Overall, I wouldn't go back even though the food is good.

“Good tacos, but poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This was my second time at Rocco's Tacos and although I enjoyed my shrimp and pork tacos, the service wasn't very good. We waited a while before we finally saw our server to take our drink order. It was a Sunday afternoon and they weren't very busy. Throughout the meal, I ended up looking around trying to find him to refill our drinks. I enjoyed the tacos, but wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for speedy service.

“Try the Guacamole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Plenty of atmosphere -- lively, if a tad loud. I had lunch here and was very pleased with the flavor and portion size. Also ordered chips and guacamole, which was prepared table side and was very good. The tequila bar looks impressive, but I stuck with soft drinks this time.

“Fun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

This is a fun place to go to. It can get pretty crazy on weekend nights but if you have a table all is good. Food is pretty good, the molcajetes, their versions of do-it-yourself fajitas are out of this world, other favorites are the quasadillas, tacos, taco salad and more. Make sure you order the guac too, and of course a pitcher of margaritas.

Finally, I don't understand the people that call this place overpriced. If anything it's actually inexpensive for the quality of food they serve. If you are looking only on the amount of the check stick with Don Pablos, Amigos, etc.

Just hurry up and open one in Downtown Orlando as the rumor mill has said for years now. Sandlake is a bit of a drive for many of us,
