Most of us got hamburgers which were good. One individual got the spicey chicken and thought it had no spiciness at all. Service was fairly quick though when the bill was left it was a long time before she came back for payment. There is...More

My Wife and I stopped in for drinks after the Crawford festival. The inside is large, tired and dirty. Cappy drinks in plastic cups. Our bartender was the rudest human I have ever run across in the service industry. Kind of Ed Debevics but not...More

All seven of us loved the burgers! We were seated in a quiet booth around the corner from the entrance at lunchtime on a Friday, and were served promptly and courteously. Hard to find with no sign on the building so we stopped and asked.

During the Hurricane Matthew event the 1st week of October, several employees chose to eat lunch at Rockaways. They ordered Pimento Cheeseburgers, Jalapeno Burger, Mushroom Burger, Onion Rings and Fries. They loved it and one employee said he could eat a Rockaway burger everyday.

This must be some sort of nostalgia connection I'm not getting, but the food here is gross. Nothing is remotely fresh. The fries are straight from the freezer and the pimento burger everyone raves about is disgusting. The cheesy topping doesn't resemble any pimento cheese...More
