I have been at The Rocket my entire life. They have super tasty food, and the service is always friendly. It is a small building and can become crowded very quickly. They also do not accept credit cards which is fine, just know before you go. The chicken fingers, baked beans, and french fries are my favorite in Calhoun County!! I also love looking at all of the tacky weekly world and enquirer magazines while waiting for food. I would recommend calling in an order even if you plan on eating there to save time because it does get super busy throughout the day at various times.

I absolutely love this food. The bbq beans are the best. They give huge portions but if you are eating in this is a little bitty restaurant. But trust me if you want some good food you should definitely come here.

The cheeseburger was a good size to be a meal by itsself
The salad with smoked chicken was huge
BUT very small eating area i would not reccomend it to any one in a wheel chair or who does not like loud static noise that was play on the radio.
