I actually had a reservation for 8pm but showed up at 6pm and even though they were very busy the host was able to seat us right away. Took the server some time to come over and take our drink orders.

Food was nothing less then amazing but the noise level was out of control. They sat us over by the bar next to a large standing crowd that was insanely loud so we were basically screaming at each other for conversation. The servers kept walking by and bumping into my chair. Very annoying.

We were in Orlando for a conference and found this place! It is amazing! The table side guacamole is flavorful and fresh! The view on the patio is fabulous! Our meals were tasty and satisfying!

Ambiance Is awesome, good mojitos. Food is subpar. I visited this location 2 years ago and loved the food. However, this trip wasn’t so great. The table side guac was terrible. Tacos were bland. I’ll go back for the ambiance and drinks but probably pass on the food next time.

Our favorite place to take family and friends visiting from out of town. Once they've been, they always request to go back. Great food and great fun every time.

Way overpriced for the quality of the food. I would rather go to Chipotle or Moes and get better food.

Guacamole is amazing as you can direct it to your taste while they make it at table, drinks are OK good variety, very loud every time we go if you like a party atmosphere and don't want to hold a conversation it's good. They have activity page for kids and are friendly and accommodating.

We had reservations for 5 and arrived on time with 3 members of our party. Even though the restaurant was only at 60% capacity we were told me had to wait at the bar until our whole party arrived. When we were seated our server was great but our food was mediocre. My friend ordered the Baja combination and ended up getting sick and having to run to the bathroom bc the mahi in her taco was so charred she couldn’t chew it enough to swallow it properly. I ordered the carne molida tacos and they were extremely dry and room temp. Usually our experience is a good one but this time it was terrible and I was left wondering why I even made the attempt.

1. It took about 30 minutes for the food to come to the table. 2. In one of the plates the beef was burned. 3. 20 minutes to get someone to give us the final bill. 4. We tip 20% our server because she was probably by herself attending all tables; we assumed that because she was not able to service our needs in timely manner.

The service was chaotic, the guy kept repeating himself and not listening to our orders. It took two hours to get two rounds of tacos for the all you can eat deal on Tuesdays. He also got the order wrong on the second round. The food runner was just as absent. It was extremely loud too.

Overpriced for the tacos since they were so small. Guacamole and chips were expensive also. Sangria was good and so was our waiter.

Food was terrific but had horrible service
We had a waiter and waitress serving us
They stood around talking and goofing around
Totally ignoring us. The restaurant was not particularly busy. The manger walked thru the dining room a few times and was either oblivious or did not care
VERY FRUSTRATING

We live in Orlando and we have eaten at many Mexican restaurants in the area but it was our first visit to Rocco’s. We both had tacos (traditional and carne asado) and the chips and guacamole. We loved this restaurant! Food was a 10 out of 10. Same with service, atmosphere and everything else about this restaurant.

There are booths and tables and three bars (one is outside under roof). There is music playing but it is still quiet enough to carry on a conversation. The guacamole is made fresh at the table where the avocados are cut and mixed with the other ingredients right at the table. The serving is large and delicious.

We could not get a reservation for 6:30 p.m. or later a day before and the restaurant was full at 5:30 p.m. so I would suggest making a reservation a few days in advance.

The tacos themselves were pretty flavorless. Unfortunately, the fish in both of our dishes were way over cooked. The corn tortillas looked almost scratch-made however they were dense has a really nasty chew to them and I honestly stopped eating because they were honestly awful. After spending well over $130 I expected to be happy no regretful and annoyed. I will not be back to Rocco’s Tacos.

Hostess was a bit of rough with us, when we requested an additional seat.

I understand there is a process for everything but there is ways to communicate without being disrespectful with your body language.

A training will help this person.

Beware, happy hour is only at the bars. Once you are seated look out! Restaurant is very loud.
The chicken in the verde enchiladas was dry. IMO, not worth the price.

My friends and I had a great time but had difficulty having good conversations especially they have come down to spend time in Orlando. The last time we went at this location, it was lunch time and didn’t remember being so loud. When we went there the second time, it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other and the next day most of us had sore throat. Overall still a good place but glad we didn’t bring our kids nor spent a long time there.

It was my birthday dinner and we made the mistake of having it on a Tuesday night. Rocco’s tacos has always been excellent but I’ve never been there on a Tuesday night. Service was awful it was so loud I could not hear my wife next we have a conversation with Mick. Totally inappropriate place to bring kids on a Tuesday night. People are dressed very skanky seems more like a pick up joint. Between the drink specials and the all you can eat tacos it brings in a crowd that is in their mid 20s that look like they are out to mingle and meet totally inappropriate for a family dinner or a special occasion. Outside of Tuesday outstanding place!

Great location, wonderful drinks, and the tableside guacamole is great. But the service was just ok, and the meal was sub-par. I wouldn't go back for anything more than happy hour.
