“Finally ate here after driving by for many years.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were truck hunting with our son-in-law and pulled in here on the spur of the moment. Didn't realize there was seating inside. We all had hamburgers. One of the best I've ever had.

“Always a Favorite”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I always stop and have a Coney-dog when I'm in the area. Ask for the fries a little crispy.. much better that way.

“I've Got A Secret”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Found out their coney sauce recipe. Couldn't believe after 25+ years that I finally found it. It is so simple and simply surprising! Would I give it up? I think......

“Quirky, very small diner/ Coney Islands”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Don't let the outside fool you. What Roak's may lack in outside appearance, it more than makes up for in the food. Plan for a bit of a wait (everyone else likes these dogs, too). Roak's sits right in front of the Spring Water bike trail in and provides the perfect place to stop for lunch, or bag it and take it to one of the near-by river parks to eat.
