The menu is limited but the prices are amazing. Two pieces if fried chicken for $6 or a half rack of ribs for $9. The deep fried chicken burger is awesome. The fries are not quite as good, not crisp. Friendly and tasty

This was the best burger I ever had in my life. We got a bison burger and a boar burger with their salad. First off, the burgers were off the hook. Both were equally delicious, so flavourful and juicy. And it wasn't just the meat. The buns I have no clue what they were but there was cheese on it... More

As soon as we stepped into the restaurant I knew we made a good choice for lunch. Mouth watering aromas, updated decor with comfy seating, and everywhere I looked was shiny clean. It's obvious this restaurant is run with great pride of ownership! We both had the highly reviewed bison burgers, which were simply amazing! Two hands required, watch out... More

We have been to this place a couple of times at lunchtime and were impressed both times. The burgers are delicious and the side salad is very addictive. It was not busy both times we have been there, which is a shame, given the overpriced franchises that are nearby. This place deserves to be busy, so go check it out.... More

Some of the best food I've ever had without a huge price tag. The staff is also very friendly! I highly recommend any of the specials.

Just stopped in and had their lamb burger. It was delisious! Nice and hot with the proper seasonings. I picked the salad as my side. Also very good. It's not a fancy place but really tasty. I'll be back!

Had lunch there today for the first time with a couple of friends and based on how delicious the food was I was amazed The Rock has been there for over a year (as per our server). I have no doubt that the location is a factor, if it was on the other side of 14 ST SW the place... More

Drivin by the rock many times, and i've always been curious about the little place. Stopped in for a quick solo lunch, and was not disappointed. After a warm greeting. I ordered and Enjoyed a great bison burger and frys. A fresh patty grilled perfect on a soft tastey cheese bun, crunchy lettuce, tomato, dripping with sauce and melted cheese.... More
