We have had family and eaten as a couple. The portions are massive. Generally fine. The service is slow, and the coffee is very basic. As an all day/nighters place it's better than truck stops but I wouldn't ask for any of the recipes. The decor is fun. Parking good. Just would like the food to be served prompter and... More

This is the continuation of the first drive in restaurant in Mission. It opened in 1956 and as a child I had my first of many foot long hotdogs. In the summer there were picnic tables outside. This is a cool diner offering diner favourites including old style milkshakes that come in the metal tumbler. Portions are generous so you... More

Yum, we came here for a mid-week, mid-morning meal and it was delicious. It seemed you could order either breakfast or lunch items - whatever you wanted. I had the Corned Beef breakfast and the quality of the corned beef, veg, potatoes, eggs and toast were excellent. My only complaint was the bowl it was served in was too small... More

Rocko's is one of those old-fashioned diners where you can indulge in nostalgia for the '50s (which is when it was apparently founded). Lots of old decor from the era (or at least modern reproductions). Who knew the Blue Plate Special was served on a blue plate? Still apparently run by a family (not certain if it is the family...

Went here for dinner because I wanted to see why everyone thinks this place is so great, and I am Baffled! The service is terrible, you have to flag down the staff to get served. The place is dirty and very worn and tired looking. Most of the booth seating had large tears in the upholstery.....it's long past time to... More

Yeah so this place is a cheap price for a crazy amount of amazing food. No matter what you order you will love it, and the Milkshakes? Not even kidding you gotta get a Milkshake, it will be the best choice you have made today :)

Unless you have a realllllllyyy long time to kill, it's best to just skip this place. The food was Ok. The burger was quite good. The wrap was soggy and the the clubhouse was also decent. The milkshakes were quite good though I must admit. We ordered the spicy fries for which we had to pay an extra $2.75. Save... More

35 minute wait for bacon cheese fries and a clubhouse with fries and gravy. Clubhouse had deli turkey, gravy tasted like it came from a package. Even the shake was a letdown.

Rocko's is a historic landmark in Mission, most recently viewed in the new series Riverdale. Serving Milkshakes and breakfast 24/7 this place is perfect for a 3am munch down. Sometimes the servers are miserable, and sometimes the food is average. That being said, it serves good sized portions for a fair price. They can do this by not spending too... More

Everything about this place is like a heart attack waiting to happen. Not only was the service simply the worst, but the food quality and preparation was extremely low quality. From the hot dog wieners to the overly baked/fries and horrible tasting beef patty. However, in Rocko's defense. This is Mission and every restaurant in Mission seems to have bad... More
