THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Las Rocas Mexican Restaurant y Cantina Restaurant Review

: This sort of standard, Southern California-style Mexican fare appeals to millions, and the location near a multiplex theater makes this a popular destination in the ever-busy El Camino Real commercial district. The setting is comfortable but not over-decorated, and servers are adept at getting food and drink to the table, though they do so with a minimum of personality. Be that as it may, we find the menu of familiar dishes sufficiently well prepared; the usual tacos and burritos are well done, as are the seafood enchiladas and pork carnitas. Many guests smile in pleased amazement when served one of Las Rocas’ giant tostadas, a sort of Mexican kitchen sink dish bedded on a vast, crisply fried tortilla shell.
