Restaurant
“Las Rocas is a family owned Mexican restaurant serving authentic Mexican food. I like their Tacos, Shrimp Cocktail, my favorite drink/smoothy/sorbet is Mangonada Mixta. It is a fruit sorbet with frozen fresh fruits and spices. It is flavorful and refreshing! It could be spicy, if you do not like spicy ask them not to put the spice in. Hope you will enjoy as much as I do!”
