Rocky Cola is a typical red-plastic boot he'd diner with the expected fare, some of which is good, some just okay.

This is an old diner. It appears was last cleaned, well, never. The windows were filthy. The blinds were splattered with food. You get the picture. The onion rings were nasty - the breading fell off in big chunks. The service was practically nil. We had to flag down the waitress for refills, etc. We won't be back.

Rocky Cola Cafe is a fun place to enjoy a nice meal. Prices are affordable, the food is good, and the atmosphere is great! It is reminiscent of the old malt shops of days gone by. It is family friendly and is frequented by many of the locals.

Rocky Cola Cafe has been a staple in Uptown Whittier for quite sometime. My family and I frequent the restaurant at least once a month. The atmosphere is calming, tries to make it as if it's like a cafe from the 50's. Sort of like but nothing like Ruby's Diner. That's just an atmosphere comparison...don't think I'm comparing the food...COMPLETELY... More

Been dining here since it opened and the food and service continues to get worse and worse. They do offer great breakfast specials and kids eat free offers, but aside from that there aren't many positive things to say about rocky cola. The quality is fair at best. With so many other options, save your time, frustration and money and... More

This place tries to be a dinner from the 50s. Sadly over the years their quality has completely fallen down. We visited here, order 5 item and all of them were pretty sad. The only half-good items were the shakes and malts. This area in whittier has lots of restaurants with better food and service

So your coming here for the atmosphere and the chocolate coke! The waiters dress in uniform. The booths are classic well the whole place is like a 50's diner. You can choose songs from the table which is always fun. The food is just your average burger and fries type of stuff nothing super special. However like I said this... More

Its themed inside, service is quick. Menu is large. I especially like the sweet potato fries! All of their food is cafe style, nothing to write an... More

omg what a fun time. We went for lunch and the food and service was great. Took my Mother and she is one of the hardest people to make happy. She had the breakfast special and was so happy. Good portion sizes. Pricing is actually really good.
