Diner Reviews
  • "I think it is hard to find really good Mexican food in the Orlando area and Rocco's makes my decision easier. We live in Tampa and spend a lot of weekends in Orlando. Every time we hit the Orlando area, we make a stop into Rocco's. You cannot beat the food or atmosphere. Great draft beer selection and if you like tequila, you better make the trip!"

  • "Let me start by saying "TABLE SIDE Guacamole." Prepared table side...to your liking. The menu is full of great ideas and excellent flavors. Seafood, chicken, pork, steak in the form of tacos, enchiladas, Molcajetes or platters all very good."

  • "Before dining at Rocco's Tacos on the 13th, I had only been there once and even though it was on a Friday night and it was noisy and crowded, I wanted to go back. So I was so excited to get to eat there again this past Sunday, the 13th and I was not disappointed. The food was great and the service was even better. I am already looking forward to the next time I get to go eat there because there is not a Rocco's Taco in the area where I live."

  • "Both me and my fiancé love Roco's for the atmosphere and the great lake view! However we find it to be over priced. There are no drink specials, and we arrived early...6:30. That is not competitive because we could go to many places in Orlando and find drink specials, even on a Friday night. My fiancé had an expensive dish, 18.00, but all I ordered were two taco's and a side of plantains. We also had the over priced Guacamole appetizer at 12.50. For my experience of eating two (non exciting) tacos and plantains, along with guacamole, the bill was outrageous. We left out of there with the tip, close to 100.00...and we only had two drinks each."

  • "The restaurant was ridiculously noisy. It was impossible to have a conversation at our table. This was our second time at this restaurant and both times were nearly unbearable. We will NOT make a third visit."

  • "We went for our anniversary dinner. We just wanted a laid back dinner with a view of the water. The food was awesome but the drinks weren't great. We ended up hanging out at our table after dinner to listen to the music. Overall it was good. Still one of my favorite spots for dinner because the food is awesome!"

  • "Menu was pricey, food was little above avg. Enjoyed guacamole and chips. Mahdi taco and burrito were average and way overpriced."

  • "The good is great and it is always packed. If you want to go you need to make a reservation. If you don't on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights you will wait at least an hour. Staff is friendly but the tend to forget about tables with 4 or less people. This has happened to me the last 4x I have gone."

  • "Guacomole was the best thing, but bland compared to other Mexican places in Orlando. Margaritas were awful for the 2nd time (too sour). Salsa tasted like it came from canned tomatoes. Tacos were too thick and ingredients inside were tasteless. Mole poblano sauce was too sweet. Salad just didn't taste good. Music was way too loud ... had to constantly scream across table to have a conversation."

  • "The food and ambiance at Rocco's is outstanding, but the noise level is off the charts! The view of the lake from the porch is beautiful and the noise level is somewhat toned down in that area, but it's nearly impossible to communicate with those at your table in the interior of the restaurant. Turning down the music a bit would certainly help, but the hard surfaces and large seating capacity add to the noise problem."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was good. Tableside guacamole was excellent :-) the drinks are expensive($14 each), very strong, and honestly not that great! We had the blood orange and antioxidant margaitas, and ted sangria...and I wasnt thrilled with any of them. I would go back for the food and maybe dessert next time."

  • "Me, my husband & our baby had a wonderful dining experience yesterday. I had requested a quiet comfortable table away from loud noise & sure enough the friendly hostess accomodated us. Out food was fresh hot & beyond delicious. This is my 2nd time here & id definitely come back & I highly recommend it! Thank you. Sandy & Diego"

  • "I made a reservation for my husband birthday and I did not like the table we got was almost in the parking lot of the restaurant. And we attended we were almost running to us quickly. The only thing was that we taste the food."

  • "From the margherita pitcher to the world-class guacamole, to the all you can eat taco deals, to the $5 tequila shots. Everything was perfect for this late-night find. The live mixing DJ played a perfect mixture of music that had everyone dancing at their tables and at the bar. Service was personable and caring."

  • "While the atmosphere was high energy and drinks were the big draw, the food was mediocre and over-priced for the quality. Definitely would not recommend for the food."

  • "This may be one of my favorite restaurants in Florida. The food is delicious (try the guacamole), the servers are very personable, and the ambiance of the restaurant is awesome! If you are trying to find a special place to go for dinner and you enjoy margaritas, this is your place!"

  • "Upon arrival you will be impressed with the mask collection and authentic Mexican furniture. Luckily we got the last table fronting Little Sand Lake, for a great view. It was a great place to eat before a concert at Hard Rock Live. We ordered the guacamole which is made table side. It was served with warm & well seasoned chips, yum! I had the skirt steak taco with a generous portion of steak. I also ordered the hard shell shrimp taco. Next time I will ask for a soft taco as the moisture from the shrimp melted away much of the hard shell into mush. There was an extensive margarita menu. I tasted each of my companions drinks & all were terrific. Our server was friendly and available. I will be back. "

  • "The guacamole is to die for :-) Entrees were plentiful. Could have just splint one with my husband. "

  • "The food wasn't bad. It is one of those places that pretty much already has the food prepared and then is heated when you order. We ordered and seriously five - seven minutes later our food arrived. Not a bad thing to get your food so quickly, but makes you wonder why so fast, we had just started on the chips and salsa. Very good and strong margaritas, but really pricey ($13 for one). "

    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Food was very blah and uninspiring. No flavor. It wasn't authentic, it wasn't unique. Guac was just ok. View over Sand Lake is the only reason to return here. I was also very turned off that Valet parking was almost mandatory due to the Valet company reserving all 200 spaces directly in front of restaurant! There were a total of ZERO parking spaces available in front of the restaurant.....actually there were over 100 available, but the valet company had them all reserved.... The bartenders were very inattentive. Staff in general was very grungy and unkempt."

  • "This was our first time to visit. The food and service were outstanding, but the noise level of the restaurant made it difficult to have a conversation with the person sitting across the table from me. While I would return because the food was so delicious, I would have second thoughts because of the loud music and customers trying to talk over it. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The food is always delicious here. Tacos aren't hard to mess up but they are certainly hard to really impress with and every time these tacos are the best. Their drinks are delicious and generously portioned for the price. We dine here often and even with a few errors on the service side, the staff has always gone above and beyond to ensure we leave happy. My only complaint is that we can't really eat here spontaneously. Its always so busy that we have to remember to make our reservations at least one day in advance - but thats more a testament to how great Rocco's is than anything else. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Food and drinks are great. Its a fun place. This is our 3rd visit here and it seems as though the servers would rather be else where. We waited 25 mins before our server came over, only to tell us she would be right back (20 mins). Too busy not paying attention to our order, never checked if we needed refills or how the food was. We also boxed our own leftovers. If she was a better waitress our check could of easly been three times as much which just means more money for her. Wish they would train their servers better. Food was great, great drinks. Service needs major attention."
