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.

Food was good. Only complaint I have is that we had to wait 30 minutes for a table. I made reservations weeks ago, confirmed the day before & when we got there our table wasn't ready. Needless to say there were a lot of vaccant 6 person tables (we were a party of 4). My kids were getting restless waiting & we're hungry. The hostesses seemed to be more concerned with talking to each other than to get us seated. Waiter was great, food good.

Rocco's is still the place to be years after it's opening. Great food ! Great margaritas ! Great guacamole ! Excellent people watching too...Can be very loud at times ! Make a reservation since it's booked weeks in advance. Even though it's great IMO it's not worth waiting 1.5 for unless you want to hang on the outside curb or stand in a crowded noisy bar till you're called ! Cheers. !

Rocco's never seems to disappoint. The food was fantastic and the service was great. It was packed on a Tuesday evening, possibly due to all you can eat Taco Tuesday. The only drawbacks is that the location is small for the number of people there, and it can get a bit noisy. I would highly recommend Rocco's.

This is a must for anyone who loves Mexican. The guacomole prepared at the table is quite a show - and they can make it as spicy as you like. All the food is fresh - the margaritas are great and you cannot beat the ambiance. It's always crowded so reservations are suggested any time of the day. If you are lucky enough to be there when Rocco entertains, its quite enjoyable. Great place for lunch or dinner - or just a margarita during the day.

Excellent experience! Rocco's was recommended by several friends as a great casual place for awesome food, drinks and service. Absolutely it was all of the above! The service was outstanding and what the waitress recommended we ordered and loved. Guacamole was made tableside, and was the best ever. I will definitely will be back!

Back again with daughter and grandkids (3 1/2 and 2) sitting on the patio. Table side Guacamole by Jordan was excellent. Pitcher of Margaritas for my daughter and my husband and a Cuba Libra for me. Val got the kitchen to make the best MAC & CHEEZE for the kids along with a cheesy Quesadilla. Adults had Tacos, Salman special, and Chile Rellano. Val was the best of all; she was very attentive, knew everything about the menu including what was spicy and what was not, and great with the kids. We will be back next week and will definitely ask for Val. Be sure to use Open Table and to include in the Notes section that you want on the patio (but not on the sidewalk). Pam & Dave

Had a nice evening with college age daughters and wife. Tableside guacamole was quite good and can be ordered mild or hot. Recommend pitchers of margaritas if there's more than two of you. We all had different menu items and raved about the food . It's a happening place and not suitable for a quiet, romantic dinner, at least not during Spring break which is when we were there.

I got the chicken cob salad, it was alright, nothing amazing. For $20 I could have made better food. The actual restaurant was awesome, and our waitress was great. My friends didn't seem that thrilled with their food either. We had to shout at each other during dinner because of the LOUD music. It was a fun experience though
