Dardevil Burger

I feel like I’ve been posting only about food lately, but is that really a bad thing?  Today, by no design of my own, I ended up at Rocky’s for lunch with Mike, Marquis and Amanda.  It was one of those spur of the moment decisions which I wholeheartedly agreed to.  If you’re not familiar with this burger establishment, feast your eyes on this – http://www.rockysfamousburgers.com/.

I’m not sure how many times I’ve been there, but I know I have consumed the following menu items:

  • The London
  • The Mule
  • The California
  • The Big Mac n Cheese
  • The Lexi
  • The Daredevil
  • Fries
  • Sweet Potato Fries

I have a few more items to try, but I think I have a modest list of achievement.  Each burger on the menu can come with a beef, bison, chicken, or veggie patty.  You can also build your own, or get The Rocky Jr. and add anything you want.  Today I tried the Daredevil.

The description of The Daredevil is as follows: “You pick the patty. We pick the toppings! Try at your own risk.”  I’ve heard stories about breakfast items, random meats, and what have you, but I wasn’t prepared for the plate of awesome that was brought out to me.


I apologize for the quality of the images.  I used my cell phone.  What we have here is a Taco Burger, I think.  Here are the ingredients:

  • Burger
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Onions
  • Jalapeño chilies
  • Salsa
  • A taco shell with meat inside (The Taco)

Snake jawsThe Daredevil was very large and in charge.  Luckily my superior smashing and jaw-unhinging skills came in handy at the restaurant.  If you haven’t been to Rocky’s before, you should know the burgers are often 5″ tall or more.  I’ve heard some people are unable to finish a Rocky’s burger and I feel sorry for them.

One thing to notice about the Rocky’s menu, other than the burgers, are the toppings.  Do you know anywhere else that charges 25 cents for cheese?  If you go to Burger King and ask for cheese on your Whopper I think it costs 60 cents or so.  Last I checked, you couldn’t ask for pepper jack or blue cheese crumbles there.  I think next time I go I’m going to get a large fry and load them up with toppings.  I could do blue cheese and bacon, or cheddar, nacho, onions, pico de gallo, and guacamole to make “nachos.”  The possibilities are almost endless.

Big Mac n Cheese burger

Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar, well, he eats you

In Newmarket there’s a restaurant called Rocky’s Famous Burgers.  They do all kinds of amazing food combinations to come up with some of the more unique specialty burgers around.  This week I had to try their Big Mac n Cheese.  It had been off the menu for a while and I’ve been waiting for it to reappear.

  • 1 hand-crafted, delicious burger
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • sliced onion
  • mac n cheese
  • nacho cheese
  • bacon
  • ketchup (my own addition)

This amazing lunch was no match for Asthma Boy.  Did I mention they also sell Pepsi products?  I was able to score a Mt Dew to wash it all down.  Next time I’m trying The Daredevil.  You pick the patty and they pick the toppings.
