Rocco's Tacos in Palm Beach Gardens Opens Tonight

Rocco's Tacos is opening their fourth location in Palm Beach Gardens tonight after much planning and speculation.

Clean Plate Charlie announced the planned northernmost location of this taco mini-chain back in March, 2011.  The restaurant, located on PGA Boulevard in the former Ouzo Blue spot, was slated for a summer opening.  There were a few teases, but now the doors are opening wide.

Better late than never, though. The menu is the same as the three other Rocco's Tacos, so expect lots of tacos (ala carte from $2.95 to $4.25 each), combo platters (we like the Chi Hua Hua platter that offers a Cochanitas pork tamale, skirt steak taco, and a taco carne molida for $15), and lots of tequila.

Rocco's Tacos Palm Beach Gardens opens tonight for dinner at 4 p.m. Come

for dinner only from tonight through the weekend. Lunch service at the

new location doesn't start until Monday, February 6th. Perfect, because

we're going to need a hangover-curing Margarita  and some

alcohol-sopping burritos for lunch the day after the big game.

Rocco's Tacos, 5090 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Garden
