We visited la Roca twice and were pleasantly delighted both times. Exquisite food! The margaritas are as astounding as the food. Don't miss a trip to the restrooms to see the lovely sinks and painted tile. Friends are traveling to Tucson this weekend and plan a trip to Nogales. Surely wish I could stowaway in their baggage.

It took a few people helping us to find the restaurant as it is not on the main drag, but the food was good. We went late on a Saturday and they had a breakfast buffet still set up. There were a number of dishes to choose from and it was $12 so many of us had that. Others in... More

I went to Nogales from Tucson with a friend for some shopping and had Lunch at La Roca. Bought some beautiful glasses in the gift shop, lots of treasures there. The restaurant has so many great dishes. The margarita's are fresh made, smaller than the ones people are used to, but this is quality not quantity. Over all this place... More

Great ambiance, beautiful building, great service, and excellent food. The only thing that takes away from it is the location. Even though is close to the border, it is not exactly in a great place.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We parked in Nogales, Arizona, and walked across the border for good food, excellent service, and a unique architecture and interior. There were nine in our party and no one had any complaints. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp; it was delicious, but what's not to like about any dish with bacon. Make sure... More

The food was delicious, the inside of the restaurant is beautiful, and the service was pleasant and professional. I would absolutely come here again if visiting Nogales.

"La Roca" is one of the best Restaurants of Mexican food in Heroica Nogales, Classic Antojitos Mexicanos are the best, The Restaurant have a romantic low light and during the night have "Trio" live music. The Con it's a little expensive so check the prices in USD before order something.
