You know that cliche saying, “If you haven’t tried so & so, you don’t know what you’re missing!”… well, I can’t help it, I just HAVE to say … If you haven’t tried Rocco’s Pub, you don’t know what you’re missing! We didn’t have soup and we didn’t have nuts, but it was great from start to finish.
The appetizers are all fresh, made from scratch, not frozen. The mozzarella sticks were fluffy, super-soft, stringy cheese hand battered and fried perfectly, served with a very tasty marinara sauce. The jalapeño poppers were big fresh peppers hand-sliced and stuffed with cream cheese, served with sour cream and a sweet & sour sauce. Without a doubt the best I have ever had, hands down. And the appetizer servings are far from skimpy and well worth the price.
The dinners were great. Thia ordered the sirloin steak with a baked potato. Rocco prides himself on his meat. Only the best hormone free beef make up his steaks and burgers and tasty just doesn’t do it justice. I know because Thia let me try some, we always share. I’ve had a few Rocco Burgers before but never tried the steak. The Rocco Burgers are fantastic, so you can imagine the steak. Very juicy. (Maybe Thia will chime in here after I post it)
I ordered the fish & chips, it was extraordinarily good. I’m not a huge fish lover to begin with so sometimes I order this as a test to see how good the restaurant is. If I like their fish chances are great everything else is spectacular. I like it a lot.
Gina was our super hostess… service with a big smile… well, until I pointed the camera at her. I had to coerce her to get a picture without her covering her face with the menu. Did I mention the service was great?
Ashley came over to say hello, I had her hold up the sale for the picture but, come to think of it, I don’t know why because she’s the bartender. Thanks anyway Ashley! (LOVE her hair!)
Chef José , the man, the legend, the artisan that prepared our fine meal. This guy can cook! Bravo! That chocolate brownie a la mode was, as they say “To die for!”
By The Way… The Pioneer Chicken Stand Acoustic Duo will be at Rocco’s. I must say, if you haven’t heard the Pioneer Chicken Stand Acoustic Duo… you don’t know what you’re missing!
