This is a local fast food chain, 4 or 5 in the Rockfod area. It is by far the best in town! Wonderful salads! A varied menu! Fast and friendly service! Always very clean. Out of towers will be sorry that there is no Beef a Roo in their local area.

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.
