It used to be we loved going here to get gyros and fries. The last few times the service and food have been getting worse and worse. The gyros hasn't been the same and the portion on the fries are getting smaller and smaller.

I have been there for lunch a couple of times while on business in Boise. All ok nothing special but just average. I was there a couple of weeks ago for dinner. This is the first later in the day meal and took my wife. It was a long day and I thought she would enjoy Rockies as she is... More

We haven't been here in years & now i remember why. It's unique with the waitstaff on rollerskates. The burgers are mediocre & I, unfortunately, ordered the fish & chips. The fish seems to be cooked out of a bag de-thawed a week ago. It was mush. The did remove that charge from the bill at my request.

Great service loved this place. Good proportions could be a little more but for the money it's awesome! We were in town for a couple days and loved it . Will be back!

I went to Rockies for their breakfast burritos. Quite good. I like the atmosphere as well. The servers wear roller skates which is a fun twist. They were very efficient and friendly the two times I went.

I went here based on seeing the restaurant on the show “Man vs. Food”. Not that I was going to try and do the challenge that he did, but I like to try spots that are showcased on television. So I gave it a try for dinner one night. Environment is spot on for a 50’s diner. It is what... More

Atmosphere was okay until the owner was screaming at employees. Meat tastes precooked. Fries were cold.

Well, this place was recommended by the staff at the motel we stayed at. A 50's diner mock-up complete with guitars, motorcycles etc, girls on roller skates as waitresses, seems alittle awkward inside a restaurant, but hey thats the show. Now the food is just average, typical arrangement. Positives: cheap price, seems clean, and plenty to look at. Gotta go... More

It's been years since I've eaten here. And it is still one of the best restaurants I've been to in Boise. Love it!!! I still don't see how the girls can roller skate and deliver the food.

We went for breakfast the morning after attending a Boise State game and met with an old friend. Food and Service were fantastic!!! We visited for over an hour and never once felt rushed to leave and our drinks were never empty... always love to visit Rockies when ever we are in Boise!!!!
