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.

One doesn't expect to find a great small restaurant in a shopping mall, but we really loved this place and went back a second time. The menu is imaginative - I had a turkey sandwich called The Volunteer that was really great, as was my wife's Cobb salad. The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is small, but if it is... More

My husband and I were looking around for someplace not fastfood to have lunch on a Sunday. We had just come into town and didn't want to drive around forever. We saw this place and went in. It is cute, smaller than I thought, but welcoming. The service was excellent and we both ordered burgers from the diverse menu. They... More
