Diner Reviews
  • "This was my second time at Rocco's Tacos and although I enjoyed my shrimp and pork tacos, the service was only average. We waited a while before we finally saw our server to take our drink order. 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."

  • "I had this reservations for my best friends 25th anniversary because a good friend of mine recomended this place. My friend asked for an specific kind of food and they made mistakes with her order 3 times. By the 2nd time I called the manager and he kindly offered to cover for all the expenses but that was not the purpose. We left the place with a bad experience; we drove from Palm Coast to Orlando celebrating their anniversary and dinner at Rocco's Tacos was unpleasant."

  • "This was our 1st visit to Rocco's Tacos. They have free valet. The building looks great. They are 3 bar areas with plenty of tequila. We made 7:30 reservations, but arrived at 7:00 and got seated right away. They make the guacamole fresh at your table. Ron made ours. It was delish! Tracey our server was very nice. We got our food in a timely manner. The kids had pasta (order the butter on the side). My husband had the flautas. They were over cooked. I had the Tuna Cerviche which was very yummy. I also ordered the shrimp taco and the grilled mahi taco. I asked for them on the soft corn tortilla. They came on the flour, but I ate them anyway. My husband told 3 people it was my birthday. They do NOT do anything special for birthdays."

  • "We chose Rocco's Tacos recently to dine based on recommendations from friends. Their review hit it right on the head. It's crowded, bars are always packed, very loud inside, ok food. That's the perfect way to sum up Rocco's Tacos. We were seated in the outside patio area, great view of the lake. Glad we were seated there so we could talk, rest of restaurant was very loud. Food was ok, nothing to write home about, better Mexican food places in Orlando. You go there for the bar scene. Bars were packed with pretty people. So if you want Mexican food, go to your local favorite but come to Rocco's for the bar scene. Parking is awful, so valet. Decor is cool, service average. I would go back, but only to the bar."

  • "Loved the tableside guacamole (love the fresh lime in it) and my 4 tacos - shrimp, chorizo, pulled pork and mahi. Love the lighting and décor. Thought the margaritas were a little pricey (I had the Golden.) Would definitely like to come back although it's about 25 mi. from home and from work too."

  • "We wanted something different for our anniversary dinner, excellent job by the server in explaining the meals and being attentive by not intrusive while we dined. Highlighted Tequila of the month made a pitcher of fine Margaritas. Enjoyed the view and food. Noise level about average for a restaurant bar we were able to hold conversation without difficulty."

  • "Rocco's Tacos proves to be a favorite time and time again. Service was timely, food was hot and fresh, ambiance was perfect. I'm so glad I decided to take my family there, since I don't see them often."

  • "This place has great mexican food, a very lively bar scene that rivals most night clubs in Orlando. My whole family enjoys this place and we visit very often even though it is a 30 mile drive for us to get there."

  • "Rocco's is certainly not your normal Mexican joint. The decor is fun and interesting, the service was prompt and polite and the good was excellent. If you have a taste for tequila, this is the place. Hundreds of options. The house margarita was quite tasty. Although I am not a guacamole fan, they make it fresh at your table. There were plenty of good options, and all of the meals are bountiful. Salsa was quite flavorful, but lacked the kick some might prefer. Only knock I have was that the music was a little loud, but it gives the place a rockin' vibe. Overall great experience. Looking forward to another visit to Rocco's."

  • "Service was lacking. Felt like they were rushing us in and out to roll the tables. Appetizer and entree's came out at the same time with no concern about this from the wait staff. Bill was handed to us before we were finished eating. Too many other great places to eat on reastaurant row than to waste your money here."

  • "I've been to Rocco's many, many times before but never at lunch time. We went on a Sunday and spent hours on the patio. The restaurant was very busy still at 3:00pm so it was a fun scene. The patio is gorgeous on a sunny day - definitely a fun place to hang out with friends! The food was good for the most part... but I had some grilled chicken that tasted like it was warmed up from the night before."

  • "My girlfriends and I got together to drink and eat . Nice place to go when you do not want to go to a club but looking for more than a restaurant . Weather was great during the Bay Hill Tournament so the view of the lake is pretty with the breeze going through . The food was good the guacomole is good , make sure you tell the person whose making it exactly what you want in it since its $12 the drinks are great and the music was energetic . We stayed until 9:30 and the place was a really getting live then !"

  • "Had heard about guacamole made table side and it was very good but the skirt steak was a surprise extremely tender and chimichuri sauce awesome. Don't pass up an opportunity to try this."

  • "I've been to Rocco's many times and it never disappoints. We had a great view of the lake and the food was amazing which it always is. Our server was wonderful as well. Didn't bug us but checked on us plenty. The only bad thing about it (which wasn't the restaurants fault) was a very rambunctious patron near by who seemed to have been over served. But again, not the restaurants fault. Just something that comes with the territory when a place has such great drinks!"

  • "I absolutly love the food! The first time I went was for Valentine's day in the afternoon and I had a great experience. The waiter was awesome! This last time that I went (3/14/14) it was fun, but extremly loud. I went with 2 more friends and it was impossible to talk."

  • "It's a loud place and not somewhere you can talk to the person next to you! The food was okay but not great, maybe for drinks...."

  • "We enjoy Rocco's Tacos. We've been here several times and have had great service EVERY TIME (including as a large group). The "made to order" table side Guacamole is delicious. We've tried several entrees and have never been disappointed. The Molcajete Seafood is amazing, and the tacos (pick your quantity) are delicious. The have a very extensive Tequila menu, so if you've been dieing to try a certain brand, this IS the place for you. We'll be returning again soon...still lots of items on the menu that we want to try."

  • "The place has a good atmosphere. The waitress was very helpful and always making sure everything was ok or needed something else. We had the lump crab special and avacado rice. It was very good if you dont like spicy hot food though dont go here. It was very hot..but I like that. As for the margaritas in my option Is nothing special.. Cor others chain restjrants are similar unless you want to pay for super top shelf. If the normal is 10.00 a drink I am not paying that for one glass so get the pitcher for 30 you get more than 3 drinks from it. As for the amount of alcohol..it seamed weak to me.but I have a high tollerence for booze. Overall.. Go for food ... And atmosphere ."

  • "Rocco's Tacos is great for lunch, brunch, dinner and drinks! Everything on the menu is great and it has a varity of options for everyone. As a vegetarian I was able to find great, tasty food and eat my heart out. For those that eat meat the options are tenfold. The drink menu is really a great point, more options than most restaurants offer and all resonably priced! While day time is great to take the family at night this is the best place to have a fun dinner and grab drinks with friends. Overall, there is something for everyone here."

  • "Food is excellent, but overpriced. But the worst part of our dining experience, was once again, the service staff. We were pretty much ignored and had to flag down servers, as our server disappeared."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food is okay. I really wish they had more variety. I like steak and they are really lacking on steak entrees. The noise level is almost to loud to enjoy the atmosphere. They need to get some sound dampening material."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Very upscale and energetic Mexican restaurant. Tuesdays are special as it is all the tacos you can eat for $14.99 and pitchers of margaritas are $15 after 7:00PM. A reservation is a good idea as there can be a significant wait. Be sure to try the shrimp and skirt steak tacos."

  • "I've been to Rocco's Tacos before and knew the scene to expect. No matter where you are inside or outside, it has a great vibe and fun atmosphere. The music was awesome, but at times the noise level was deafening. We pretty much had to yell just to hear each other in conversation. The food was fantastic as usual. Our server was great as far as personality and overall service, but she lacked in general just being there. We had to wait a long time just to get a server once seated, and it was few and far between when she came back to take orders or check on us. I think this was primarily because she was waiting on too many tables. Overall, I'm a big fan of Rocco's. There are just a couple things they could do to improve the experience."
