Fun for the entire family.

the milkshakes and sodas are fabulous. There is also a juke box and memorabilia on the walls of the 50s & 60s. There is a mercantile store attached where you can buy souvenirs and gifts.

We visited Rocky's Soda Shop for the first time today and loved it! The atmosphere is great and is like a trip back in time. The checkout process was a tad confusing because we had to pay in the adjoining store. The staff was extremely kind and attentive. I had ice cream but didn't order a meal.

What a fun authentic soda shop! Not for those looking for fine dining. Hot dogs and ice cream were terrific! Watch the opening hours so you're not disappointed. Great lunch for us!

Father-daughter date after pick up from camp. Bright atmosphere. Great menu. The Elvis and a peanut butter-chocolate shake were a hit. The outdoor gear at the adjacent store was a surprise value as well. I suspect that they cater to the tourists, but the prices were good.

Went here after several people recommended it for the kids. It had a nice diner atmosphere, albeit slightly tight/crowded. The menu featured a lot of classic sandwiches some with a twist and I chose the grilled spicy pimento cheese. It was delicious! The kids enjoyed their root beer floats as well. If you're in the area, I would recommend this... More

Took one son here after dropping the other off at camp. He felt like he got a special treat too just by eating lunch at Rocky's! Great menu for the kids (burgers, grilled cheese, chips, ice cream, that kind of thing) and plenty for adults to enjoy too. A fun experience for everyone!

I came in here to get a cone and decided to look around at the non food items in the store first. I really liked their touristy tshirts! Some of the best I saw in Western NC. They were very funny and pretty good prices, too. They also had a bunch of candy and apparel. Unfortunately, I didn't end up... More

My client and I dropped in for lunch. It's the height of tourist season and there was a long wait, but worth it. This place needs to expand into their space next door. Love the burgers and the staff. Would love to see them open for breakfast. A must-do when visiting this tiny little town in the mountains.

We went in for ice cream the first evening we were in town and it was so good we went back a second time for lunch the next day. Great sandwiches and milkshakes!! The attached store has lots of cool stuff so if you have to wait for a table, there's plenty to look at.

Rocky's is a trip back to the 50's. A former pharmacy/drug store turned soda fountain, the stools and counter have been kept and provide an authentic feel to the theme. This place is always buzzing like a beehive. The food is excellent, as well. If you want the best hot dog in town, or a turkey sandwich with an amazing... More
