The food and service are fantastic and I challenge you to find a better value. Recommend: Pork chop Grilled tenderloin Mile high club Grilled cheese Trailer park All fantastic! Only complaint, I wish they were open just a little later but I always figure a way to get there!

This is an authentic '50s diner. No curb service but it recreates or preserves the era quite well. In general, the hours are 7a-7p, more or less. Service has been good. The concession to modernity is no "harmful" cooking oils. The background music is appropriate but there are no jukeboxes. The menu, both for breakfast and lunch/dinner, covers a fairly... More

I took my daughter to the Rock- Cola for lunch. My husband and I have been there and the food was fairly good. I wanted my daughter to see the place and how nostalgic it is. We walked in and sat down and the woman behind the counter just gave us a cold stare. We had my grand daughter with... More

A friend and I enjoyed a late breakfast on a Wednesday morning. This little place has been in Irvington for years on Brookville Road just west of Arlington. The menu is outstanding if you are into a hearty breakfast. We were not necessarily looking for a big breakfast, but we did want to vary from our usual path. Lots of... More

I just took the family to Rock-Cola Cafe and I can tell you that this place is truly a hidden Gem. Sandwiches so large both of my teenage boys could not finish them. I ordered the Reuben sandwich and it was absolutely the best Reuben that I have had. The place is small with several booths and bar stools just... More

Delicious! We went for the first time today and everything was great. The service was quick and friendly and the food was steamy hot when it got to the table. Everything was tasty and we all had to take some home. The milkshakes were extra yummy too!

You heard me right, they have the trademark rights, and serve Choc cola. You can even buy a gallon to take home, if they have enough. Sandwiches are huge. If you are hungry on the South East side of Indy, get off 465 at Brookville road, and head into town, this little place is about 1 mile in, on the... More

I have never been in this resturant before today. After we recieved our food, the man pulled out his cell phone and was texting also rubbed his face. Then went right back to work on the grill for another couple that was there to eat. When it was time to pay he also rang us up on the cash register,... More

We live a few blocks away, and found this awesome little restaurant when we moved to the neighborhood in July. We've been there 4 times now and have always left impressed with how fresh and tasty the food is and with the friendliness of the employees (and other customers for that matter). Two people can get a huge amazing breakfast... More
