As locals, we love to try new places in PB, OB and MB! Tonite, Rocky's reopened after Covd-19. Rocky's has always been a cramped & dark hole-in-the-wall! It is limited to Beer and 2 types of Burgers - nothing else. Mike and the staff have...never been warm nor friendly to their customers - a bit arrogant about their burgers and beers. Since it was convient to our neighborhood, we would go at less crowed times to watch a game with friends for a burger and beer. Sometimes, we would stop in after walkinng our Sevice Puppy (registered/licensed and >6 months of training). Given the small area, we wanted to see how they would handle the new 6 ft requirements and grab a burger. But both the Bouncer and Mike said - "do not bring your service dog in here - it is not welcome". Well, this was our last visit. We would rather drive to Hodad's in OB or InNOut in PB for a BETTER BURGER; Friendler Staff and that welcomes locals!More

I have been eating here for many years. I can show a little restraint by not visiting as often as my friends ;) Rocky's is a no-frills small sports pub on the corner of La Playa Ave and Ingraham St. in Pacific Beach. You will...find a decent selection of beers on tap and wines for those imbibing. It is a cash-only establishment, but there is an ATM outside on the sidewalk if you need it. They open at 11 am. The "lunch special" runs M-F from 11-2. You can sample San Diego's best burger along with fries and a drink at this time. With the lunch special, you get a 1/3 lb burger with or without cheese, a pint or a soda, and basket of fries and pickles for around $15. You can also order ala carte if you don't want the special or find yourself there at other hours, and the kitchen is open until late at night. The menu consists of a 1/3 or 1/2 lb burger, with or without cheese, and french fries. If you get it as is it comes with red onion, tomato, and lettuce. You will be given ketchup and mustard along with a bowl of banana peppers. They like to keep it simple. The clientele is a mix of colorful neighborhood locals, lunching professionals, and even some tourists who somehow find their way. Expect to wait about 20 minutes for your food to be prepared; this gives you plenty of time to try and find a seat at the bar or at one of the tables, which are in limited quantity and can be shared, so make friends. No kids are allowed, so leave them at home, actually nobody under 21. You can call and request a take-out order. If you are visiting from another country, you will want to have your passport on you to verify your identity. Enjoy SD's best hamburger, and don't tell too many people about it.More

Great place for a burger in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Also a good place to catch televised college or NFL football games.

I’ve been to Rockys a few times, I know it’s always crowded and I don’t mind. I went there today, my boyfriend and I were having a few beers while waiting to get a table and eat our burger. When I finally got a table...a server put some food on my table and ask “do you mind? Their food is here” - I was speechless so I left the table, when I found him again I told him I was waiting for that table and I was sitting, why did he kick me out? Is there a vip list at Rockys now for specific clients? He didn’t apologize and just said they had food and I didn’t which is ridiculous because I was waiting for my food and my table. Anyway, He had no right to kick me off that table, that was very rude and I felt humiliated. I ended up leaving and not eating which is too bad for me because I really wanted that burger, but I rather eat anywhere else than put up with disrespect. That guy needs to learn to respect people, no one deserves that kind of treatment or service, awful experience!More

This is a pretty small bar that is all seat yourself so you may need to wait and be ready to dive for chairs when they open up. They have a great lunch special that includes any beer, a cheeseburger, and fries for about $15....Solid, juicy burger that tastes like one you'd get at a good cook out. Not too big of a portion and good service at the barMore

Burgers and fries are the choices. Cold beer, wines, and sodas in a pub setting. Great service, very attentive, and professional. Quality product, and comfortable atmosphere.

Stopped in for dinner and enjoyed the best burger in recent memory. Burgers and fries are the only thing on the menu and they do a fantastic job! They also have a very nice beer selection and the games are on the TVs.

So delicious! Had to wait for a looong time for a table in this tiny pub, but the hamburgers were worth the wait.

We were told,about this place by the security guard at our hotel. Visitors from London UK we were used to high food prices, but the exchange rate was crippling us. Popped into this bar and the best burgers ever. Cosy joint, not many tables, but...sitting at the bar chatting to the locals was great fun. Highly recommended. Great food, great company and very friendly staff. A must go to place in San Diego.More
