    The various comments regarding noise are accurate. This is one of the loudest restaurants I have ever been to. If you can get by the noise, the food is pretty good. I was disappointed that I could NOT pay my bill with apple pay.

    Kudos on ensuring reservation times were kept accurately. Unfortunately the noise level far exceeded the benefits of being on time. For those looking for a place where letting it out is acceptable, this is the place. For those seeking a romantic or "alone" space, consider elsewhere. Overall, the food was average. Plate portions were a bit small considering the prices. I was disappointed with the rellenos as I am accustomed to having the peppers roasted prior to stuffing. By not completing a roasting process, culinary authenticities were in doubt. I was disappointed in the experience and doubt we will shadow their front doors again.

    Thanks to Open Table, I was able to make an advance reservation and request outdoor seating. Although they were busy, they seated us on the patio, which I love for the fresh air, the view, and the lower noise level (indoor seating is rather noisy). We ordered drinks, appeteizers (LOVE their seasoned chips and trio of salsas) and entrees all around. Great, prompt service and tasty food, served fresh. No complaints!!

    Great event again. Love Rocco's Tacos. The staff was amazing. I was a little upset that we had a reservation for 10 at 7:30pm and made the reservation two months before, and we had to wait over 40 minutes for our table. Other than that....amazing time.

    Food is always excellent here and there's nothing better than sitting out back on the lake on a cool evening. The only complaint is the slow service, which seems to be common here. I would visit again but it would be nice if they could work on the overall quality of the service staff.

    If you like Mexican food you will love Rocco's Tacos! The chili rellanos were the best we have had in Orlando! The margaritas were very good, but on the small side. The guacamole made table-side was excellent. Our server, Emily, was very good. BUT, this place is loud - too loud. Don't go here if you want to have a conversation. We could barely hear our waitress. If you like loud music you will love this place!

    R-T knows how to make a drink. The catalog of tequila lets you know you are in a serious drinking establishment. Several bars indoors & out. The menu needs to be explored. If you splurge a little bit the experience is fantastic. Excellent fresh tableside guacamole. The atmosphere is fun and lively with a mix of music. Free valet. We love it here.

    It was our first visit. I thought the food was OK, everything seemed heavily seasoned. I ordered the chimichanga and frankly thought the wrap was too doughy - would have preferred an ordinary tortilla. Sides (rice and beans) were tasty, and fresh made guacamole was excellent. The tortilla chips were seasoned and at first bite seemed very good, but after eating several, the seasoning seemed overwhelming.

    Fun atmosphere and attentive, personable service. Really enjoyed the food, but found the drinks to be mediocre - Roco/Pam ritas at $12 seemed watery. The Cochinitas pork tamale was fantastic and so was the chile relleno. The tableside guacamole is a must-have. will definitely go back to try some of the other interesting menu items.

    We went here on Saturday evening as a group of four. We were seated close to our reservation time which was nice considering how packed it was. The ambiance is amazing, but its ridiculously loud. We could not hear anything and we had to shout at each other in order to talk. Our service was very good. Everything else was hit or miss. The strawberry basil margarita and the acai margaritas on the rocks were fantastic. The frozen blood orange and regular frozen margaritas were not good. The tableside guacamole was a nice treat and very tasty, even though it needed more lime and salt. The chips were great. The tacos were poor. Very americanized and flour tortillas. I am a taco purist, so corn tacos all the way. Id go back for drinks.

    Both my husband and my dinners were overcooked and lacking authentic Mexican flavor. Our waiter clearly wanted us to leave as we sat talking over drinks...cleared our table leaving barely our cocktails. There are several other places I would rather pay for an over-priced meal with great atmosphere.

    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!

    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.
