I have to eat very clean due to an autoimmune condition but my kids and husband can eat whatever the heck they want. Rooks Tavern was the perfect balance incredible taste and extremely fresh, unprocessed whole food. Also appreciated that they mark their food clearly (gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian). Anyone who has to eat a strict diet will understand what I mean. Unlike anything I've ever had, their flavors erupt (in a good way). The dry rub barbecue was perfectly cooked. my son raved about his burger, my husband said the BBQ ribs were the best he ever had and my daughter had a salad while I went for the trout. We also shared a dish they called Cowboy Cassoulet. So glad the waiter told us to get it. It was a yummy concoction that was inspired by Texas BBQ tradition. Their secret seems to be local food that is cooked on a giant, open flame. Well worth the trip to OSU campus area and by far the nicest place in that area. Also, great cocktails and it didn't break the family bank. We will be returning!
