Best margaritas, tacos and South Palm restaurant:
Sometimes, it seems no matter what day or what time you go by Rocco’s, it's packed and busy. Co-owner Rocco Mangel certainly knows what he’s doing. He should. The family business is restaurants (his grandfather ran the iconic Copacabana in Manhattan).
Still got doubts? OK, let’s just break it down for you: Rocco’s has 12 taco dishes, boasts 425 varieties of tequila (including George Clooney’s brand) and stays open to 2 a.m. (3 a.m. Saturdays).
