“Great Mex. Food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

First of all, I live near the restaurant, so I eat there every few weeks. This is one of the few Mexican restaurants in the Charleston area in which I have had reliably excellent food and service. The serving size is above average and the prices are reasonable... around $10-15 per person for an entree and tip. I usually don't get a soda or appetizer.

“One of the Best”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Last night we visited this restaurant with another couple and it made me think of how many times we have met other friends here when we all wanted a reasonably priced, delicious, quality meal. This place has been open for several years now in a location where many other restaurants had tied and failed. In all of our visits to La Roca, the foods has always been well presented and tastefully prepared. It stands out as a quality, casual dining experience in this area of WV.

“Consistant Quality and Good Service; they make you feel at home”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We have been eating at this restaurant since its first opening day. The choices are endless, they cater to your requests, the drinks are great, the food is high quality and the service is friendly and efficient. We enjoy sitting on their patio drinking dos equis or frozen margaritas. The fajitas are delicious and can be spiced up to suit your tastes. The management and staff have treated us like family since the first visit. They welcome us with smiles and handshakes. A great place for a drink, a meal or just a snack. We travel 30 minutes one way just to eat here; it is worth it.

“Always a crowd favorite”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We eat here quite often. The staff is always great and the food is some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. They offer a full bar and a menu with something for everyone. Their prices are low and the amount of the food they give is generous. One thing I like about this place is a white dipping sauce that they provide along with their traditional chips and salsa. This sauce is very unique and has a nice "zip" to it. I'm not sure what it in it but it is great. Some Mexican restaurants kind of throw all the food on the plate and it looks messy. La Roca does a nice job at providing food that is eye appealing and tasty. They also have a large outside patio. The road beside the patio is busy but it is a nice alternative to sitting inside on nice day/evening.

“Surprisingly Good!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stopped here on the way home and it was surprisingly good! They have cheaper dinner plates. I got the #8. They have a creamy salsa that you get before you get your meal and it was also good and something different! It was a fun atmosphere. We were greeted by one of the waiters opening the door for us and we were seated promptly. We were close to the kitchen and I could hear them singing and whistling to the music. Food came out fast and hot! The price was excellent too! 3 of us ate for $25!
