Our second time at Rocco’s. First time left us wanting more. Flavors were mild and lacked anything special. Service was mediocre. Last night we tried again with tequila enthusiasts visiting. Again, we left thinking it was just OK. Tacos were a bit dry and needed some pico or salsa to moisten / finish them. Tequila selection is no doubt impressive. View out to the lake is nothing shy of incredible. Unfortunately I’m sure we’ll go a third time. It’s the kind of place we really wanted to like. The environment is fun and energetic. Appetizers/Starters may be a better choice for us because overall all it falls short in food/flavor. Sorry R T.

Of the variety of menu items and chef specials that I've had, I've not been disappointed with the quality or the value of the meal or the service. Rocco's has a well refined approach to providing the customer with a satisfying dining experience.

Creative Mexican dishes and nice water-side table. WAY too loud if you want to catch up with more than 1 friend or get new colleagues to network. $20 for table side guac made with 2 avocados - really?

The atmosphere is a party atmosphere. The music is great. It is loud so you can get crazy with your friends. The food is just mediocre borderline not good! Although the guacomole dip is good (and I don't like guacomole!) The chips are seasoned and crisp! Yum! Our waiter had too many tables so often I was trying to get someone anyone's attention! Our waiter was a little indifferent when I asked for drink referrals or preference. I always ask my server for their recommendations. He didn't have one. He was very matter of fact...a little indifferent. But.... For a fun time without any expectation of delicious food this is the place for you! The music is great! Also, make reservations... we got right in!

Apps were great. Service was just ok. Wrote a note that it was my daughters 12th birthday but never got acknowledged (you take care of my kids you will always have a fan!). I had to ask the waiter to do something and he just brought out the cake with one candle. No group happy birthday song. Boooo!! Tres Leches cake was horrible! Tacos were good.

Love the decor, felt portions were small and just average taste for the cost. Typical tourist restaurant. Ordered the Baja for $19 was not worth the cost. Also table guac is very pricey considering most Mexican places offer that standard for less than half the cost. Service was good but will probably skip restaurant in the future.

This is our 2nd visit to Rocco's Tacos Orlando. We had an enjoyable lunch with one of our favorite foods - Mexican. Rocco's makes to die for homemade corn tortillas, and the table side guacamole is excellent. My husband enjoyed the daily taco special, which we shared.

There are better options. I had a reservation and still waited 20 minutes to get seated. Then it took 45 minutes to get tacos. The server kept making excuses for the kitchen, but ultimately the experience was slow and subpar. Oh, the churros are supposed to be great, but I wouldn’t know because they ran out of dough.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on September 1, 2017

I think this is a great drinking place, but it's too loud to carry on a conversation and the food was "meh" but pricey. We had the signature made-fresh-at table guacamole (which everyone enjoyed) but asking for $al$a was extra. The chips had a "trying too hard" odd spice to them. The salsa was flat tasting. So we ordered a side of black beans to liven them up. I ordered two fish tacos and my husband the pulled pork. Our friends had the fish special and their son had a half order of nachos. The fish was super dry and we could barely choke it down. Thankfully we had ordered (and paid for) chips or we would've left hungry. The nachos were too spicy for the child, so we all partook, and voila! We found the best thing on the menu. They were great! Cocktails here were great Too.

We often entertain out of town guests at Roccos. It is fun, original and the menu has something for all. The experience was consistent with everyone having a good time.

The only disappointment was the young man who made our guacamole. I asked him for hot sauce and he said "NO, I would have to get from my server. He was busy." I thought he was kidding. Service is usually slow, however we never go if we can't take our time. We are used to it mostly.
