Beef a Roo has about a half dozen fast food restaurants in and around Rockford. Make no mistake about it, this place is much better than McDonalds or Arby's. The quality of their food and...regrettably...their prices are both high. About 4 o'clock on a weekday...More

Super Kale salad is a fantastic and tasty salad option in this city. Get it with chicken or with out. Cookies are pretty good too.

Not your usual burger joint. Although it does have burgers it has a lot of healthier things too, soup wraps, seasonal salads, etc.

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...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.

Turkey wraps, veggie burgers, hot dogs, fish and chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, salads, fries, shakes and so on. Copy the menu to MS Word on a blank page and then you have it. Go for it!

I know they have a veggie burger. You can ask them when you order, that you want everything on it, at your discretion. It's pretty good, but a little steep, price-wise. Also, they have steamed broccoli, always a nice choice... More
