Came here for an early dinner after the Christmas holidays and enjoyed everything. Everyone at our table loved the dish they ordered, which doesn't always happen. Not too crowded, good service, and best of all, background music not too loud. Will definitely return.

In a sea of fast food restaurants, this is a welcome oasis!!! It is casual, interesting/historical (firehouse memorabilia) all-American, friendly, attentive AND most of all...great food! I had the salmon blackened tacos and my spouse had the salmon filet. Moderately priced. Several TVs with different sports. Unique dishes on the menu, it was hard to choose. It is great for... More

It was late when I pulled off the highway, so options were limited. I won't eat fastfood. This bar/grill was open and was across the street from my hotel. I ordered the right thing. Having recently gotten over some bug, I was looking for some soup. The Tortilla Soup here is excellent. What I like about it is that it's... More

Great atmosphere! I had a turkey burger that was incredible. I just wish they had sliced pickles. My boyfriend had a wedge salad and he said it was the best he has ever had.

We went on a Wednesday nite around dinner time, but it was final World Series game and I think they underestimated the turnout. Service was slow and mediocre, our server was surly and inattentive. The hostess did give us badly needed water refills, but our server did not check back until we were done eating. The food was good at... More

We stopped in for a late lunch since this was near our hotel. The décor was fun and interesting. The hamburger I ordered was delicious and cooked medium just as I requested. The chili was good too. The staff was friendly, but not intrusive. Got to meet the owner as well. We'll stop back in the next time we are... More

Nice local place kind of hidden away in a mall area - was recommended by our hotel - small inside but really great food and appetizers. They had a nice selection of beers also

We visit the Desert at least once a year, and always try to visit several restaurants each trip. This evening we were tired and wanted someplace nearby, inexpensive, and simple food. Roc's was on a list given to us by the location we stay, so, off we went. We were cheerfully greeted and immediately seated. A simple, limited menu of... More

Drove in from Vegas and ROC's was a few blocks from our hotel. Decided to check it out and the ribs were incredibly. Loved all the stickers from firehouses across the country.
