Good place, chips guacamole and salsa was mediocre but the main entree were great. Decor was ok. Wait staff were ok too. The music was a bit loud but good selections.

Came back again for lunch. Service was great. We had 1 day in FT LAUDERDALE and we were looking for something to do. Our waiter went out if his way to give us lots of ideas for a very rainy day. Great food, too

Made a stop here while on vacation. The guac is amazing and my family of 4 loved the food. Vegetarian enchiladas were some of the best I’ve had!

The portions were skimpy. I think I had 2 mushrooms in my mushroom taco. We were 4 people at our table and everyone thought their various tacos were very skimpy. The refried beans were way too salty.
The guacamole made at the table was fun, but needed more lime, and was small as well. We were happy for the atmosphere, but the food wasn't worth going back for. The bathroom was not clean.

A nice Mexican/TexMex themed bar on Las Olas. What I liked was the spacious area and feel inside, with high ceilings. There is a long bar and a seating area.

I have been to two other Rocco's and loved it. This one in FT. Lauderdale was absolutely terrible. From the service to the food it was all bad. Will never go back and would not recommend.

We have been trying to get in and book a table for ages. Finally got one and had to book a table for 4. Happened to be "Taco Tuesday" which was a bonus. Ate too much though and felt over full but the food and sangria was nice. Made us arrange to see friends, but they unfortunately stood us up due to sickness but waiter was cool and did not move us to a smaller table. Sat outside on terrace for the first time which was cool

I felt the server should have told us about the Tuesday, taco special. Because she didn't, we ended up paying double for the same thing.

We went with good friends to the Rocco's Tacos in Las Olas. In the past, we have always enjoyed the place, but tonight was frustrating because the waiter disappeared several times for long stretches and he was really no fun. Also and more importantly, we had 4 or 5 pitchers of premium margaritas and none of us got any kind of buzz at all. After 6 glasses of margaritas, I should have felt the alcohol. My wife, who is skinny (and cute) had 3 margaritas (she would normally be a mess), felt nothing. This makes me think they were skimping on the booze. The food was ok, but the overall experience was ruined by the waiter being disinterested and the booze being weak. I am not sure I will ever go back there because there are so many other great food and drink choices in Las Olas!

The actual food entrees...eh...over salted meat and quite dry. Chicken enchiladas - pretty good but the shredded chicken was dry and too salty; chicken taco - same; fish taco - not so fresh fish. The only notable food were the chips and table side guacamole. The drinks are good and they do a fair pour. Come for drinks, chips and guac! Skip the actual food.

The valet service is wonderful and reasonable price wise - weather was iffy the night we went, so it was really nice have no parking worries.

We had a group of 4-5 arriving at different times. Rocco's accommodated this and seated some of us early. We had a booth - which was very comfortable.

Guac station was a nice touch - made to order, the way the diner wishes. The downtime between food order and delivery was amazingly short. Portions were generous and overall food was delicious. Only suggestion is more meat based offerings on the menu. There were few steak options and I was disappointed that they couldn't do a steak chimi, or add queso on the side when asked.

Wait staff - efficient and polite. Anticipated there might be a division of the bill so it was split by food order, but not by total, so still alittle confusing when 2 of us paid by CC and 2 by cash. Offering separate checks up front would have been the better options, but not one suggested. I am not sure he got the tip I left because of how things were split.

Came here to celebrate a coworkers promotion. Had a nice time for a few hours and had a quiet table in the back. Nice ambiance, and all the tacos were great! Not to mention the chips which had a nice, sweet/savory seasoning and the guacamole was a nice touch!

Great food, the guacamole created tableside is outstanding. One burrito or two tacos is more than enough after the chips and guacamole and a delicious margarita. Loud music and high energy bar scene. Reservations are a must.
