Ah, Rocks. I used to live by the Lakeview location and moved shortly after they expanded the space, but luckily ended up in the neighborhood of the then-upcoming North Center spot. We’ve become trivia semi-regulars since then. The space is pretty big and open, and when it’s nice out they open the big windows next to to the sidewalk. They have good specials throughout the week (including $2 tacos on Tuesdays, which is trivia night) and always have a good beer list. The menu is about 50% burger-focused, and while I’m not a burger eater, it’s been confirmed by dining partners many times that they are, in fact, very good. (There are non-burger options, and you can substitute a chicken breast for a patty in any of the offerings as well. Woo!) There are plenty of TVs if you’re a sports person, and there’s a pool table and a shuffleboard… board? Table? Overall, it’s a solid neighborhood spot, but leave the kids at home for trivia nights since the team names can get a bit NSFW.
