    Our server was very friendly, made eye contact etc. The kitchen could not get my order correct. I ordered a burger medium well it was served Ray I sent back and the next burger was served with sour cream which I had requested to be left off the first burger on the taco strips were missing on the second burger as well. I ended up not even having an entrée that night. The manager and the server tried to get me something else but at that point I had enough and my dining partner had already finished her meal.

    We have enjoyed Roccos for years. The food and service has always been great. We have noticed recently, and have also heard from friends, that the quality has dropped dramatically. The service is slow. The food is bland. The drinks and guac is the same as its always been, but overall its quite dissappinting. The inly reason we keep going back is that we hope its gotten better. It simply hasn't. Too bad. Used to be a great spot.

    I was really looking forward to dining at your restaurant. The atmosphere was great. I had the Yucatan and my boyfriend had the fajitas. Not much taste and there wasn't a lot of meat in either of our dishes. I have to say that I will not return and would not recommend your restaurant. My server never ask us how our meal was

    We have dined several times at Roco's Taco's and aside from our time spent at the bar the evening was a disaster! We were taking friends who have just moved to the area, and never dined at Rocco's.From checking in with the hostess to dinner.... BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

    mexfoodlover
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    The most appropriate comment I can think of is "Meh"....not bad but way too pricey for what you get. $12 for guacamole? 2 avocados and some tomato - prepared by some kid tableside. Our dinner was $75 (one entree, one appetizer, guacamole, 2 draft beers) if this place wasn't in Boca they could never get away with it. Like I said - the food wasn't bad, but it also wasn't that good. I would recommend Uncle Julio's instead.

    Saturday night had a 9:15 reservation. Arrived at 8:30 and were sat immediately. Excellent server went over drinks and was quite attentive. Ordered guacamole made at table-side....AMAZING! Server reviewed specials and then took order. I highly recommend The Brooklyn tacos. Lots of pork and bacon. Flavor was incredible! My boyfriend ordered the Baja combo. Equally delicious!! Great night, great food!! Will most certainly be back! Like this location better than Ft. Lauderdale. Not quite as loud and cramped.

    Always like to go here and sit outside. People watching is definitely abundant. Love the fresh guacamole that is prepared at the table. This time it wasn't as great as always. Tasted like something was missing in it. I always order the taco sald with grilled chicken in it. Love it! My husband actually ordered the same thing this time. My only complaint this time was that the taco shell was a little under prepared..so soft instead of crunchy. Always a fun place to dine.

    Rocco's Tacos at Boca Town Center never disappoints. Our only complaint was that our Open Table reservation only got us inside seating. I should have added a note requesting patio dining but it seems obvious that outside seatibg is desirable.

    Tableside guacamole eas good as usual, eish they had the option of unseasoned chips, as I do not care for the seasoning they sprinkle generously on the chips. I ordered the California fish tacos which were good sre normally wonderful, I was a little disappointed. Probably not because they were only slightly warm. Husband ordered surf and turf and loved it. Our waiter. Checked back often and kept our drinks full. Overall a decent meal for the money. We did have a buy one dinner get one free coupon. Sat outside so the noise level was down.

    My partner and I enjoyed the freshly prepared guacamole app but it was made for us and brought to the table. Other locations will make it beside the table. Also the bar and the servers have different recipes for drinks. A loaded corona at the bar uses Bacardi but at the table, the server brought us coronas loaded with patron tequila.

    Don't expect anything authentic about this Mexican place. Food was slathered in sauces (without warning), so difficult to enjoy many of the flavors. The best bar of the meal was the guacamole made table-side, which was entertaining for the little ones of the group.

    We had a great time at Rocco's this past Sunday, we were a party of three and sat outside. We were greeted promptly and seated, the service was good but there were a couple issues closing out the split check. It wasn't a big deal and the manager took care of it right away. My wife and her Mom shared the seafood Molcajete and loved it. We always get the guacamole and chips, a favorite!

    The food was great. The guacamole was the best I ever had. the quesadillas were also amazing and different. The Tequilla menu was vast ( however a little pricey). Dining outside is the way to go. I like a lively atmosphere but the inside was so loud you couldn't hear each other talk. Can't wait to go back !!

    This place was jamming on a Friday night. Which was to be expected on a holiday weekend. Having to wait for a table at the bar, worked in our favor though! We ended up eating there, and got great service from one of their bartenders! She suggested us to try the grilled chicken in the quesadilla, instead of the pulled chicken which was a great recommendation! I loved my spicy pork empanadas, they are HOT so have a cold beverage handy. Lol The chicken tortilla soup was soooo delicious, and a hefty portion too! It was an overall fun time with tasty drinks, and good food!

    Large, open area with a lot of different seating choices... inside, outside, covered but open air, booths, high-tops, or sit at the bar. The inside seating was too loud for us as the place was packed... so we chose outside at one of the high-tops. The make-at-your-table guacamole and chips ..was excellent... as was the other items we chose. Margaritas were excellent. Service was fine. Good place for a fun time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
