It looks like a fun diner, but the menu has incredible depth beyond burgers, to crepes and one of the most delicious ribeye steaks that would rival any 5 star establishment. My somewhat picky “Burger Connoisseur” raved about her cheeseburger, served on Texas toast, as is her preference. Even the fries and onion rings are remarkable, which I can’t say very often. It is the ribeye, however, that steals the show. Not a thin diner steak, but a high end cut, tender and well seasoned. Easily the best steak in Albany, if not all of South Georgia. Coupled with great service and a chef who frequents the front of the house, occasionally offering tastings of potential new menu items, The Rocket is my new favorite place to eat, and I haven’t even sampled the shakes yet...

The burger was huge and the fries were delicious! I was totally expecting the fries to be salty but they WEREN'T they weren't even greasy! It was so good, you really get a lot of fries also with your order.

When the rocket was here years ago I never went... I don't know why...but I'm glad I finally made it! The food is extremely fresh and portions HUGE! They are known for their milkshakes and my children nor I were disappointed. I love the customer service, esp with each other.

In town on our way to the beach and my husband wanted a burger. This place popped up on my Trip Advisor search and was really close to our hotel. We ordered take out since we were traveling with our dogs. He got the when pigs fly burger and I had the chicken salad sandwich. Both were prepared perfectly and were delicious. The tots and fries were really good too! Online ordering was very easy and convenient. Would definitely eat at The Rocket again.
