A Florida-based chain of Mexican restaurants is expanding into Sarasota, with plans to open a new location near the University Town Center mall this summer. The restaurant, Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar, specializes in enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas, tacos and salads, and pours more than 300 different varieties of tequila.
