Beef A Roo is not a typical fast food restaurant. Every order is made fresh and the burgers are awesome. I feel that they have the best onion rings I have ever had. They seem more like a sit down style restaurant in the way they treat their customers. The mints that they offer you as you are finishing your... More

I love this place their Sante Fe Salad is great as is their city deli stack. My wife loves their Pitas and wraps. Their chocolate mint shakes occupy a special place in her heart. I love their cheddar fries and their roast beef is great. I've never had a bad meal there nor bad service. They are more expensive than... More

I had never heard of this chain prior to coming to Rockford and was curious to try it out. I was NOT thrilled. It's average food for higher than fast food prices. I like that the restaurant was kept clean and that the staff was friendly, that is a huge plus, but you can't overlook price when you go with... More

I've been eating the Santa Fe salad for years and love the salad dressing. Today, the dressing was awful. I always thought they made a dressing by combining ranch dressing and salsa. Today it tasted like a cheap ranch dressing with that packaged dry taco seasoning added for flavor. Hmmm...I even went up to the counter to see if I... More

My husband had the worse Turkey sandwich. The bread was so dry they should have been ashamed to serve it. The lettuce was an inch thick and then a small amount of turkey about as good as Budding.

1st spot my college students trip home. No place like this! They even have STEAMED Broccoli as a side dish! So you can be as bad (fries & onion rings) or as good as you want (Veggie burger & steamed veggies)

This may be an above average fast food place, but that's basically what it is, so if you are looking for a place a little nicer when you get off the freeway, don't make the same mistake we did! Ranked the #7 restaurant in rockford? Drove out of our way to get there. Never been so disappointed in trip advisor.

There are serveral Beef A Roos in Rockford all with a different theme. I went to the one on S Alpine that is like a 50's dinner. You really feel like you stepped back in time and the burger was great

Beef and Cheddar! Everything is good! Fries are the best and so are the onion rings! It can get a little pricey but good food for sure!
