Won't go back there. You can't have food your way, they mess it up. They want to make their food their way only

Many family gatherings occur at this spot. Intersection can be a little tricky for parking you must go through light then turn in. Food has always been fresh and staff friendly.

I really enjoyed eating LaRoca salsa. It had cilantro, onions, tomatoes everything that is supposed to be in salsa. Seems like several Mexican restaurants just put basic tomatoes and it doesn't have a flavor. Kudos to LaRoca for good salsa!

I'm sure you're not reading the reviews to determine what kind of food a Mexican restaurant is putting out. I assume you're wondering how this one differs from the others you've been to. It is very similar. Typical menu items, typical costs, typical serving size, typical speed, etc. It is cleaner than most with a more open and bright atmosphere.... More

La Roca, whose name was recently changed to Roca's, is a great local place serving Mexican cuisine. I've eaten there many times, and the food is consistently great! Roca's is spacious, very clean, and offers great service. Servings are large and tasty.

Large place with free parking right outside the Mardi Gras casino. Food was average, mt Chile Rellenos were a bit oily. Service was fast. Basically a down and dirty Mexican restaurant, no frills.

A "Gold Star' for Deicy, a very nice waitress, patient and understanding. We had a very enjoyable drink and snack. The place was exceptionally clean and comfortable.

Puzzled by the poor reviews I'm seeing for La Roca which I believe is called Roca's now. My husband and I stop by this restaurant regularly whenever we visit West Virginia, and it is one of our favorites. The servers are professional; some of them could be a bit friendlier. We've never had any problems with the food at all;... More
