"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!"
