In my humble opinion they have the Best Burgers in San Diego, maybe the whole planet. Small place with a big heart.

The menu is so simple it will take you less than 15-seconds to make a decision. Hamburger or Cheeseburger, 1/3 or 1/2 pound. Fries. When it comes to beer... that may take a bit longer. Everything is fresh. Not a lot of salt. Service is about right for a corner hamburger joint. Loved it!

They have been famous for decades and desearvably so. They only cook burgers and fries 3rd of a pound and half pound These are real quality JUICY burgers full of flavour... Be prepared to wait 30 to 40 minutes as they are slow cooked. I've been after the recipe for years and finally found it on U Tube... They searve... More

I dont know what they put into the burgers but they are definitely the best I ever had. I travel all the way from Norway solely for the tasteful burgers. Thanx to my OB best friend for revealing this awesome culinary jewel.

A crowded, at times frenetic, friendly hamburger joint. Great burger baskets and beverages. Local favorite.

I had the 1/2 pound burger with fries, a beer and a Coke. The burger was delicious and juicy and the whole meal came out to $20.

This is our favorite burger bar when visiting San Diego. Amazing food and excellent beers on tap. You couldn't have dreamt of a more perfect cheeseburger paradise.

Rocky's has been a neighborhood home run for years. Hands down the best burger and fries in Southern California. Great beer choices, wine, and cold sodas. The atmosphere is active, lots of folks, and a great sports locale. One bite and you will agree, the best burger you've ever had.
