My wife and I try to go twice a month for their excellent hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches. It is worth the 35 minute drive from Sonora. They also have a large selection of beers on tap.

There were 7 of us - 3 adults and 4 kids. It's a small restaurant but they were very accomodating and helpful. We got ribs, steak, salads, chicken, tri-tip and luscious desserts made right there.

I love finding places with fun food! Their trashcan nachos did not disappoint! The presentation was so fun and unique! We ordered pulled pork on them and I have to admit it was pretty darn tasty! Our server was really good at making sure our drinks were never empty. And they have a beautifully carved bar!!!

We had last been here about 13 years ago and, since we were in the area and we now have a dog and this place is dog friendly, we decided to stop in. It is very popular with locals. The patio wraps around from the front of the building to the side. Even though it can be a bit tight, there is sufficient room to move around. Parking can also be a problem but not overly so.

We had to wait quite a while to get a menu. We then had to wait quite a while for a waitress to take our order. We then had to wait quite a while to get our milk shakes. We then had to wait quite a while to get our meals. We then had to wait quite a while to get our bill. We then had to wait quite a while to get our change. See a theme here?

In between the waiting, the food was very good. We both had strawberry milkshakes that were a bit overpriced but very tasty. I had a southwestern burger and onion rings that were both outstanding. My wife had a BLT that she liked but she was not happy with her side salad (she advised the waitress who did not seem to care) so she asked for onion rings. The waitress brought out a large order that we could not finish. When the bill came, we found that we were charged for a full appetizer.

Neither of the two waitresses we spoke with were very engaging and neither seemed to care about our dining experience.

Overall: ho hum.

This is a local favorite for many and we can see why. This was our third time returning to The Rock and we were all pleased with the great food and atmosphere. The service was great too. Go early if you want to get a place outside or inside as it is not all that big but the food is fantastic.
