Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar

5250 Town Center Circle Boca Raton, FL 33486 | Boca Raton | 561-416-2131

Location Description:

Clematis' rollicking taco and tequila bar takes a page from Boca Raton's MoQuila, where operator Rocco Mangel once served as manager. The bar is stocked with an enviable selection of silver, reposado, and anejo tequilas, poured into sexy, sort-stemmed blue tumblers by handsome waitrons. The design reflects a marriage of contemporary décor with Southwestern flourishes like pinpricked naugahyde and coffee-colored wooden paneling. Sipping shots from the bar and supping on chili powder-flecked chips and guacamole made tableside is good fun. But the tacos at Rocco's don't live up to the name. There are eight varieties ranging from $3 to $4 a pop, like mahi mahi, steak, and meatballs with sautéed peppers. Most are hit or miss. Still, the bar scene is a trip and the drinks are strong.
