Great Place for Sports

I was at here when both the Cubs and Hawks were playing on TV on the same night. What a great experience! I arrived an hour before game time and I didn't get a seat. Food is good, lots of variety of beer on tap, great service and atmosphere.

There were six in our group and we had burgers, wraps and a salad and all the food was terrific. I had the California burger and it was one of the best I ever had. We were visiting from Colorado and the meal and service was perfect.

Rookies runs some great deals like $1.00 burgers with a drink. The food is good and the drinks are cold, my favorite is the Mai Tai's! There is always a crowd there so that says something about the food. I have had many things to eat here and they all have been good.

We stopped by for lunch while traveling for business in the area. We were 5 minutes ahead of the noon rush, but the staff did a great job of keeping up with the crowd. Lot's of tv's to watch, free popcorn and a good pub menu. They have dollar specials for burgers and by the time you add cheese, fries... More

The location was great as we were staying in a hotel right next door. This is the epitome of a sports bar. If you didn't find something interesting to watch on one of the many TV's, you weren't trying. The server was very friendly with a good sense of humor. There were five of us, with one of us ordering... More

Rookies is a great place on game day or for happy hour as they often have specials, they have good food (especially appetizers and nachos for sharing) for reasonable prices. Service is often a bit slow but if you are willing to wait, it isn't usually packed so is a great option.

All four of the Rookies offer good food and good service at a fair price. We find ourselves going to Rookies when we are in any of the four areas they serve, because they are consistently good.!

Every month Rookies amazes me by offering great food for just $1. It's either a great hamburger, or hotdog one month, then a delicious chicken sandwich the next month...all for only $1.00..!!

Great cheap eats during special promotions make this one of our favorite restaurants. Many times we have wanted a quick, flavorful - and above all - inexpensive meal. Their $1.50 hamburgers and hot dogs meet the ideal. The chips they come with are more than adequate, but with the burger or dog priced so low, why not get the fries... More

We stopped in a on a Friday night and the place was jumping. A mixed crowd of families with kids, drinkers and sports nuts. Even though it was busy, the service was great. We had a fun, hard working waitress. We all had burgers that were good. The beer selection offered many excellent choices. The dollar burger dinner ended up... More
