We stopped by the Rockit Bar & GrillI to judge how hard tourists should work to find a good burger. Does Rockit stand on its own or do other places rock harder? Tune in and find out.

There are more than burgers on the menu at Rocket.  Try the BBQ Salmon if you can't handle the meat.

The lobster burger was voted one of their best in 2007, but we found the texture to be odd.

  1. i had a salad here once and it sucked pretty bad. Not really a place I’d like to go to again…

  2. Yeah, it’s not really a salad/healthy food spot. Could totally see where that would suck.
    If you do go back, I strongly recommend the mac-n-cheese instead of leafy greens.
