Barangay San Roque was one of the fourteen barangays of the City of Navotas. Presently, it is led by the elected Chairman Ricky Gino-Gino.

The name was derived from San Roque de Navotas Parish, the very first place of worship in the town.

Brgy. San Roque is bounded by Tangos South to the northwest and north, Tangos North and Tanza, Navotas (via Badeo 5) to the northeast, Brgy. Hulong Duhat, Malabon and Brgy. Flores, Malabon in Malabon City to the east (via Navotas River, Badeo 4), Manila Bay to the west and Brgy. Daanghari to the south.

Brgy. San Roque is famous for its annual fiesta, every last Saturday and Sunday of the month of January. Every fiesta the whole barangay (including Brgy's Tangos North and Tangos South) is filled with stalls and stores. Also every fiesta of San Roque, A. Dela Cruz St. is full of stalls which sell kalamay, from Batangas.
