“It's ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I heard from friends this place was great, but the coffee is horrible and the service can be pretty bad too! I can't understand why they have huge burgers with no less than 2 patties and when you ask for a burger with just one patty they get a little cranky and it's the same price as the 2 patty burger. I've been a couple of times don't think I'll go back.

“Rocko's. Always an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Not sure how to describe Rocko's but if you only go once it is worth the visit. Great value, huge portions, over the top breakfasts, excellent milkshakes and the service is usually fast and friendly. A real mix of locals, students and families. A great place to take out of town/country guests who have never experienced a back to basics diner.

“Why is this place popular?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

My wife and I go out for lunch about once a week. Rocko's is probably the worst place we have eaten all year. The thing I can't figure out is why this place is busy! The burgers are made from frozen pre-fab paddies. The fries are OK, but also not fresh. The prices are very high for a greasy spoon, and they serve drinks in plastic tumblers. The service consisted of taking your order; bringing your food; ...then ignoring you the rest of your meal. ( we had to ask for our bill, after eating, and still had to go up front to get it ).

“Good classic diner food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Okay, this is not gourmet dining. What it is is good classic diner fare with large portions, reasonable prices and great music. Breakfasts are huge (especially the pancakes) with awesome breakfast potatoes. Burgers are very good. Lots of variety on the menu. So what's not to like?
