I popped in to get some food to go as I had my dog with me on the trip. As I waited for my order I sat and read a local paper. My order was ready and I was surprised to see so many bags. I ordered enchiladas with rice and beans. I returned to my cottage and found my... More

I was referred by a few people to eat here. The prices were VERY reasonable, especially with the portion size served. I had ordered the chicken fajita and is was delicious! I had my food to go but the short while that I was waiting the servers and cooks kept smiles on their faces.

I am a local who eats at La Roca at least once a week. The family that runs it is always friendly and helpful. And the food is true to the Oaxaca...simple flavors of cilantro, lime, peppers... Try the chili colorado or chili verde. Also the chicken flautas are great. And all the beans are cooked perfectly.

We have been here a couple of times for lunch, and that is because the other good restaurants close early, or we don't know want to look for something to eat. It definitely is not authentic Mexican food, but Americanized. It is decent food, and at decent prices, the service was good, and the atmosphere was just ok. Since we... More

My boyfriend and I ate here for lunch today. I had the chicken burrito plate and he had a beef chimichunga. Our meals were just the right size and full of delicious flavor. My boyfriend doesn't normally like beans but he ate all of their! YUUM!

Close to the Sandcastle Motel. Very crowded, very small. We didn't have to wait long tho'. Food was good but salsa was different from any other I've had before. Nacho was made with 3 meats which was odd but good. Altho' we liked it, would go to the other Mexican restaurant in the future.

La Roca has been in Lincoln City for several years. With each passing year, they seem to get better. During our most recent visit, I tried their Pollo Asado for the first time. This was the best Pollo Asado I have ever had. The chicken was tender and flavorful and everything about the meal was first rate!

We have been to La Roca 3 times now. Each time we took friends or family. Each time everyone was surprised and extremely happy with their entrees. I would almost call it "clean" food. Everything does not taste the same - and they don't smother everything with one sauce. Even the kids loved their food - it's just really good... More

This little restaurant has superb, authentic Mexican Food. We have gone there for years for lunch, but yesterday went for dinner. Service is outstanding, food is served very timely, great sauces and is served hot as in temperature. La Roca is impeccably clean, cheerfully decorated, very modestly priced and can't be beat for a flavorful meal. It's a "must stop"... More
