My family ate here while on vacation. Our only regret- not being able to return since we live across the country. The food well prepared, generously portioned and delicious. The rollerskating waiters offer friendly, efficient service, and the atmosphere is FUN! Dining here is a delight!

I moved away 4 years ago and not being able to have Rockies whenever I wanted to was the worst. Their food has always been awesome, the service quick and friendly. I had basically planned my trip back to Boise around my being able to eat here! The spicy chicken sandwich is still my favorite

After nine seemingly endless hours of flying, I couldn't have been craving some heavy comfort food more. The menu contained typical diner fare but that's nothing to ever complain about. I had a few cups of coffee, savoring the moment of relaxation coupled with some oldies music and a book. The waitresses are all on skates which made me smile... More

Took our Grandson there for his birthday (his favorite place). We had great service and the food was very good. Having the waitresses serve you on roller skates was such fun!

Kitschy memorabilia, guitars, airplanes and even an Elvis occupied motorcycle hanging from the ceiling. A dj spins oldies from a record booth and even waitresses on roller skates. That's the best part. The food is just okay; one step below some of the more well known chains. But it's a fun place to take the grandchildren for something different and... More

I will say during a given time this restaurant could/would be very good and a fun atmosphere. The food was very average in my opinion and nothing at all was exceptional. If you are able to go when there is a live DJ it would be more fun then just an older looking diner with average food.

My wife and I decided to try a new restaurant, one we hadn't been to before. I guess the item this place is known for is the hamburgers. We decided instead to have seafood instead. The platter we had( shrimp and cod combo) was hot and delicious and filling. The young waitresses on skates added to the decor and the... More

This place had cute 50's decor, DJ'd music and the waitresses roller skate to your table. The food itself was pretty lackluster, however. The plates were oversized so that the portions appeared small. My salad had brown spots on the lettuce and my mashed potatoes were only luke warm. My chicken fried steak was ok, but nothing to write home... More
