Almost too good.

Rockies Diner was a very cool place to go. A lot of 50's rock stuff on the walls, friendly waitresses on roller skates, and great music playing. What was almost TOO good was the ticket time. The food arrived really fast. We're talking Las Vegas fast. There was nothing wrong with it. It tasted... read more

Rockies Diner was a very cool place to go. A lot of 50's rock stuff on the walls, friendly waitresses on roller skates, and great music playing. What was almost TOO good was the ticket time. The food arrived really fast. We're talking Las Vegas fast. There was nothing wrong with it. It tasted great, but wow, they were fast.

Totally disappointed in kind a everything. Everything is totally dusty and dirty, even the silverware. When we entered the diner, we'd should have known by the smell that it ain't good. It just stinks like bathing in a fryer. The servicing was ok. But one guy behind the bar really looked not appetiteley . The food is known by being... More

We were there for breakfast. The waitresses were on roller skates, which was cute. I ordered the Spinach and Swiss Cheese Omelet and my guy had Pork Steak and Eggs. They serve artificial coffee creamer, and did not have half and half or cream. The waitress did bring some plain milk, which was ok. My spinach omelet was not big... More

Not sure it would be a weekly destination, but happened to be on that side of town and had never been in. Great service from the skating waitresses and the food was good as well. Cheese fries and chicken sandwich for the wife and a burger and onion rings for me. The shakes looked spectacular, but too full to try... More

Rockies is a family favorite. The service is always good, the food never disappointing, and how can you not love being served by skatetresses? The kids love the food, the girls on skates, and the decor. Definitely worth a visit.

Dirty and run down. Could use a good dusting. Our order came out in literally no more than 1 minute which is never a good sign. The burgers were a grayish color so had obviously been cooked well ahead of time and been soaking. My daughter got a French dip on bread so soggy it wouldn't stay together. We told... More

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.

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.
