Talk about a Bristol institution. Rocotillos has stood at the top of Clifton Triangle for 24 years, and remains as popular as ever today.
Run by the same family all these years, this American-style diner was the first to do Southern-style 'dirty food' in Bristol and still does it best. The winning combination of big fat portions, quality ingredients, good-value prices and free coffee refills is a rare find.
The eccentric decor and addictive breakfast pancakes have made it a hit with generations of families who regularly visit. The cold, creamy shakes are a cracking wake up call any time of day - go for the Oreo. For a vitamin hit, try a freshly made smoothie bursting with berries. The curly fries and superb hash browns are the stuff of nostalgia, and the burgers are stacked high and perfectly balanced.
With an Observer Food 'best breakfast' award and continued love from locals, Rocotillos promises to stick around.
