    Granted we went on a Saturday early evening. They were able to seat us early at an outdoor table, which was good, because you would have to shout at your companion to be heard, but not good because the people waiting on a table were crowded around us. Service was excellent. The chips (which they charge for???) were coated in some kind of reddish spice which I think ruins the whole chips n salsa thing. Salsa was delish. Menu a bit pricey for Mexican food...$18 for fish tacos??? But, overall, I would go back, the food was fresh and tasty and it's in a prime spot on Clematis.

    We love this Mexican restaurant. The food is amazing. We commute here from NYC and are so excited that they are opening a new location in Brooklyn with a roof top. Now we can get simply delish Mexican in both states. By far the best Mexican we have ever had, just a fun place to go. Keep it up. The frozen margaritas are yummo. Can't just have one!!!!!

    We were seated outside upon our arrival. The table of four next to us sat down shortly after we did. A waitress came to take their drink orders. She brought back their drinks and took their order. Meanwhile, we sat looking at the menu. After fifteen minutes, we still had not been greeted by a server, so we left and went to a different restaurant. We had heard good things about the food at Rocco's, so it was disappointing that we didn't get the chance to try it.

    This is a joke, Rocco himself runs around on the loud speaker and say's "Free shots to all of the bald guys!!! Actually free shots to everyone!!" WATCH YOUR BILLS FOLKS this is a scam. There were 6 of us and we were charged for the 6 shots. I guess they think most people will not look at their bills. The only thing going are the cool lights and the chips....

    Had been meaning to try Rocco's and was in the Palm Beach area. Food was below-average and service uninterested. Instead of serving good, fresh Mexican food Rocco's tries to put a "spin" on it and fails. Guacamole has added unnecessary spices and tortilla chips are drowned in chili powder. Sangria was watered down and awful. Will not return.

    This is the first time I use open table for reservations and I thought it wouldn't work. We got to the restaurant 1/2 hour before, people were waiting for 1/2 hr to be seated and to our surprise they had our table ready and were seated right away, before our reservation time. For now on I will use open table for reservations.

    This is a tough review to write. We had a great table. The guacamole was good although not prepared table side which would be a nice touch. The chips were extremely salty and the pitcher of Cadillac margaritas was very weak with no flavor (except lime juice). After waiting an unusual period of time for the entries, I asked our server for a status, apparently they were dropped coming out of the kitchen. Then we waited again for our tacos and tamale only to receive them cold...oops. I had it by then and asked for manager who politely apologized but said these things do happen at restaurants--I trust she was referring to the occasional dropped food and not delivering cold food. She did pick up the check to that point which was gracious.

    Harboring a craving for some good Mexican food, we ventured to Rocco's Tacos on Clematis Street in Downtown West Palm Beach and were not disappointed. The chips and salsa were good and the made-at-your-table guacamole is suburb. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and it was very good, as were the wet burritos. As dessert connoisseurs, we found the tres leches cake, flan and churros excellent - and chocolate sauce dribbled over the churros is among the best chocolate we've ever had.

    Our server was attentive (but not over bearing) and was very polite. Refilled our drinks automatically & had no problem bringing anything we needed.We asked for medium guacamole but it was not spicy when they brought it, so he got jalapenos so we could spice it to our liking! I had the grilled steak with smoky chipotle cream, sweet potato & spinach. TO DIE FOR! My picky son had the child's quesadilla and this is now his favorite restaurant. We had a table right near the entrance & it was raining so there were alot of people there. There should be more separation between waiting & eating guests. A guy almost elbowed me in my face as he was waiting for a table. They had a covered canopy where they could have gathered.

    Love Roccos! BUT i have never been to this location on Clematis...was really looking forward to going i was craving their amazing food so bad. I ordered 2 very simple chicken tacos and a sangria. Food came out quick BUT COLD!!! And not the way i ordered it. I don't like to send food back and i was starving so i just ate it. Very disappointed. And halfway through my meal, my drink finally came out When i had to remind the waitress to bring it! NOT GOOD! This location needs some serious help. The place wasn't busy, there were a ton of people standing around not working so plenty of hands to help out and the experience was still pretty bad. Will NOT be going back to this location. Ill stay at the one in ft Lauderdale which is wonderful!

    This was my second and last time at Rocco's Tacos. To start, the chips are awful because they add "spices," which do not enhance their taste, plus they taste like flour tortilla chips, although I was told they are corn. The chicken, chorizo and fish tacos all tasted the same - bland and tasteless.

    I ordered the tacos, which seem to be the main focus here. They have many different choices, both with innovative ingredients and traditional (chicken, beef, fish). They offer 3 choices for shells: flour, soft corn, and hard corn. The pitcher of margaritas was good and inexpensive. We also had the table-side guacamole. Contrary to other reviews we did get a booth (without even asking), but we also had 5 in our party. Very good food and reasonably priced. Perfect for a casual dinner.

    We arrived late and we couldn't call to let them know because our flight was delayed and circling. They were nearly full but were able to set us within a few minutes! The margaritas were great! The fresh guacamole was too mild for my taste, but may appeal to more that way. Vegetable enchilada were tasty. Nice meal all around!
