About Us

The Best Bar & Grill in Grand Forks, ND Since 1952

The El Roco is proud to be known as the place where good friends get together for a fun time. So much is offered between our multiple venues, including drinks, food, and games!

Our bar was established in 1952 by a gentleman affectionately known as Rocky. He had a simple business philosophy: run a nice, clean place; take good care of your customers; and keep the beer cold.

Our family-owned and -operated business has grown a lot since then. Our bar now offers live bands and DJs, along with pool, darts, and many TVs for watching sports. You'll have a great time with our established, fun, and friendly atmosphere. We hope you'll become one of our repeat customers!

You'll also find a wide selection of cold beer, craft beer, wine, champagne, liquor, kegs, and more at our bottle shop.

Stop by our grill at 1730 13th Avenue North for a delicious meal. A full menu is available Monday through Saturday.

If you're feeling lucky, try your hand at our casino. Our charitable gaming includes Blackjack, Pig Wheel, pull-tab games, electronic bingo, and more.

Do yourself a favor and come by our bar and grill today. Rocky always said, "The El Roco, it's where good friends meet."
