We went here with our two young kids and it had great atmosphere, great food and great service! My husband got a hot dog with chili, I got a the cheese burger with chili and onions and our kids got grilled cheese. Everyone enjoyed their food. We also split a strawberry milkshake. Price was good too. Great lunch place!

This place is always crowded- for a reason! Love the hot dogs on the freshly baked local bread! Chili Willy is my fave! And don't leave without a milkshake!

Probably the one must-see restaurant in Brevard NC. Long a favorite of the Channel 70 Productions crew, visiting Rocky's is a bit like going back into time. It offers a 1950's motif and the shakes are made the old fashioned way with milk and real ice cream with a Hamilton mixer. Service is always friendly. Parking is always a chore,... More

Flash back to the old soda shop days. This is a great old time soda shop. It is retro and the burgers, dogs and other basic sandwiches are awesome! only thing is no fries but you do get potato chips. The green tomatoe pickles are super and you can get a plate of them if you get hooked on them.... More

Rocky's is a 1950s era soda shop with wonderful ambiance. My wife and I had dinner here last night. We've eaten here many times, but it has been a while. Nothing fancy but very good sandwiches. I had a smoked turkey sandwich with swiss cheese and apricot chutney. It was absolutely great. The chips that came with it were nothing... More

I wish that I could write more on the #1 rated dessert place in Brevard, but I did not get to try any of the menu items. Upon entering, my company and I stood at the counter and overlooked the menu. We did not even realize that we had to sit down to be serviced until someone rushed by us... More

They have done a great job of preserving the old time soda shop atmosphere. Great place to stop for some ice cream or a quick bite

Like so many, we started coming to Rocky's during camp drop off/pick up weeks and it soon became our favorite. The hamburgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese are excellent. It's often crowded so be prepared to wait.

Thank Ben A
