We believe this is the best Mexican food on the central coast. Very friendly people with very generous portions of food. Prices are great, you can take the whole family out to eat and not break the bank. Also the restaurant is very clean!!

Why is it that 2 of my favorite mexican eats are at the coast? With my friends and family, it's a toss up of which place is the best, here or Puerto Vallarta. This is my fave but my man's fave is Puerto. All I can say is that you get a ton of food at a reasonable price and... More

Pro tip: Go at an odd hour and preferably on a week day, unless a long wait is something you're after. At 3:30 on a Monday we were seated immediately and our server was with us promptly. Complimentary chips and dip was a good start, green sauce was pretty spicy. My Roca platter consisted of steak, chicken and shrimp. Flavor... More

Delicious mexican food, and so many choices! We ended up getting combos, because it was too hard to settle on one dish! Reasonably priced. It is a bit out of the city center.

Trust me La Roca was such an unexpected find. Truly a diamond in the rough. The food is so flavorful. Please know there is usually a wait as it is a small restaurant, but the wait is worth it. This is a place to fill up on a budget. We got the chicken fajitas for two and it was amazing.... More

Walked in and knew we had made a good choice but when our food came WOW!!!!! The staff and service were terrific too. We were a party of 10 that they accommodated easily. From fajitas to burritos to taco salad and nachos, it was all delicious and the portions were huge. Definitely will go back every time we're in Lincoln... More

This is Mexican food Oaxaca style. I had the shrimp tostada which was perfect - crunchy cabbage, avocado and spicy shrimp with just the right balance of spicy and fresh lime. My husband had the camarones a la diablo and was disappointed they weren't more spicy. The salsas are excellent and the service is very friendly and efficient.

This place has OK food, but quick & friendly service. It's not a large restaurant, so I can imagine it might get crowded at peak dining hours. Parking is a bit of a challenge as it is squeezed into a row of shops.

Great food at a good price. The super burrito was huge. We liked sitting outside in the trees and quiet.
