Rok:Brgr Burger Bar + Gastropub - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Rok:Brgr Burger Bar + Gastropub has got this great laid back atmosphere that I just fell in love with from the minutes I arrived. There was a dude outside with only his acoustic guitar busting out some great jams and playing everything from George Michael’s “Faith” to Everclear’s “Santa Monica”.

I had a tough time once I looked at the menu trying to figure out what exactly to start off with. I settled on Primo’s Meatballs and an order of Poutine. The Meatballs were good but that whipped Ricotta was so smooth, it really made those Meatballs something else.

Poutine for the uninformed is a Canadian dish. It’s essentially Cheese Fries with Gravy. They nailed it! The Gravy was perfect which is essential in making an awesome Poutine. Also, the Fries were fresh cut and perfectly seasoned. They use Kennebec Potatoes which are perfect for Fries. I would say this is a definite must-have.

As tempted as I was to create my own with all the toppings available I chose the Rok:Brgr. It’s a 10 oz. patty with Vermont Cheddar, Hickory Smoked Bacon, Bourbon BBQ Sauce on a beautiful sesame seed bun. It’s served with Lettuce, Tomato, and all that jazz but I removed it. The Bourbon BBQ Sauce is served on the side and I found myself alternating dipping the Burger and eating it as is.

I made the right move by choosing the namesake Burger because that usually tells me a lot about a place. In this case, it told me this joint is serious about its Burgers. I forgot to mention I had Truffle Fries with the Burger that was on par with some of the best Fries I’ve ever had. If I lived closer this would definitely be a hang out for me but for now, I’ll settle for a long distance relationship.

Must Enjoy:

    This place Rocks! The Lobster Corn Dogs were great as well. It’s a great spot downtown and a perfect fit.

    Worst costumer service waited an hour and a half for a table after they told us ten minutes and then we got skipped by the owners friends. They treated us like idiots. Never will come back

    ate here on Sunday for the last time, (been here 4 times)service is always spotty at best and the food just isn’t that good for the price. I ordered the RocBurger this time, had very under cooked bacon that I had to remove and the buns are just to hard to get a good bite without everything slipping out the other side of the bun. Just not that good lots of better options all over town, and the beers are all overpriced by about a buck.

    BY far the best burger joint south of Palm Beach County. But the servers take a while before they tend to you. Its in a bar district so they are more accustom to local young drunks.
