This is a taste of old Nogales. Have you ever had Mexican food? Have you ever been to mexico? No? Then you haven't. Go to Ueta and buy some duty-free whiskey. Then go across the line and make a left. Ask anybody where LA Roca is and they will know. You are within 500 feet from the gate. They have... More

We had heard about La Roca from someTucson friends. Our friend was here visiting and we decided to give him a Mexico treat. A very nice cab driver took us there.. from the border about a ten minute drive. We were greeted by wonderful waiters and a trio of mariachi players. It was Sunday, so their buffet was featured along... More

Don't be fooled by the formal look. The food was great. Mexican dishes were very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is off the main strip, but well worth the short stroll. The staff was very attentive. The prices were surprisingly reasonable for the ambiance. We had two appetizers - chips and salsa and guacamole. My husband is not a fan of avocados, but he devoured the guacamole. Our entrees were delicious. We will definitely return if we are... More

I took my wife here after crossing the border, frankly, she wasn't too comfortable in the city until we went here. Great service, great atmosphere and good food. Loved it! Would go back again if I could.

Been here numerous times both walking and driving. very easy to find. driving requires an interesting route. Food is always excellent. The shrimp dishes are especially good. Try the chef's special shrimp. Margaritas are the real thing their website has coupon for a free one. Very attractive interior set back into the rock wall. If you get there early enough... More

Went here on a Sunday for a late lunch with another couple. We had read about the restaurant years ago but frankly had avoided going to Nogales for awhile given border issues of late. Not to worry, the walk across through the DeConcini port of entry is easy (park in the vicinity of McDonalds nearby) and it is about 5... More

My wife and I had dinner there and it was great. A/C, tablecloths, live music, and the food was terrific and very reasonably priced. We each had two drinks and an entree and the whole meal, including tip, was about $45 USD. This place is a real gem in Nogales, Sonora. As you walk in, look to the left (east)... More

Best chicken/cheese quesadillas ever. I wish we could take that cheese home with us! La Roca was a nice, cool place for our family to take a break and eat really good local food. Water was filtered too, so it was safe to drink and tasted great. Margaritas were great. Salsa and chips were great too. Three of my boys... More
