    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 must say over all had a great time one little hiccup keg ran out a server forgot to come back with beer. My wife's meal was out standing a lava pot dinner. My street tacos were a little on the salty side but the top shelf cocktails made up for them. We will be going back.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
