The roast beef was very tasty and the Chicago dog great but the milkshake was divine. Forget McD and all the others. The place is comfortable too.

These guys are noted for their freshness of food. Unlike your standard Mac's or Burger King, they have food that is much healthier when in a hurry. Try their turkey wraps and steamed broccoli, sweet potato fries and good baked desserts when in season. Once in a while, a great Chicago Hot Dog with all the trimmings makes you "one... More

I had the regular roast beef sandwich...the roast beef was great!! The cheesy fries I ordered were not the best--cheese sauce tasted as if it was from a can--- I liked the fire station theme of the restaurant.

Better than your average fast food restaurant. Burgers, fries, sandwiches but also a nice salad selection. I had a kale salad which was obviously prepackaged, but tasted fresh and good!

It is a taste of Rockford local food. There are 5 of them and they each have a different theme. The food is really good. It is a bugger and fries place. But also has great soups and salads!

The service was good and the food was really good. This is a great place to grab a bite to eat if you are on the run or wanting to sit and talk with someone over a leisure lunch.

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
