...you should be able to mix. I'd pay more to get some variety. Say $1 for two types or $2 extra to try 3. Otherwise, this is now on my short list of Whidbey Island faves. The tacos were good, service friendly. I left happy.

I really enjoy their mini key lime pie (as well as their tacos). Fun to get a pot of coffee and a couple of mini desserts for a little social outing with a friend or spouse.

Nice atmosphere and although a welcome to have a taco place on Whidbey, the food is mediocre at best. Poor selection of salsas (no pico de gallo) and the taco shells were cold. Shared vegetarian and pork tacos with a friend and it was probably...More

We love Rocket Taco. We've eaten there three times now, and every time we've come away happy. The staff is friendly and happy, and the food is fresh and tasty. This isn't walk-up run-out fast food, although you can get it to go. I recommend...More
