Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar Opening Fifth Restaurant This Fall in Orlando

Rocco Mangel -- South Florida's resident chrome-domed taco and tequila pusher -- is slowly expanding his small empire of raucous Mexican restaurants beyond the borders of Palm Beach and Broward counties. This fall, his brand is heading to Orlando where he will open the fifth Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar.

"The opening will be between August 15 and September 15 and October 15," Mangel said, though as with any restaurant venture, opening times are subject to change.

This will be the first Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar located outside of South Florida and Mangel said he's been putting in a lot of hours traveling north to help get the restaurant ready to open. The restaurant will follow a similar concept and menu as his other spots, and Mangel said locals can expect the same kinds of "Rocco's antics" (like the bar tequila dance) associated with the typical Rocco's Tacos celebration.

This will be the second Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar to open this year. The Palm Beach Gardens location opened in February after several delays (read more about it here).
