A Birthday and a Rok:Brgr Detour...

This past Friday night we went downtown to celebrate our friend Jarred's birthday. The location was set, the standard... Tarpon Bend. We arrived to find Tarpon SO packed that there was no way in bloody hell we would get in there. So we took the Rok: Brgr detour...

This was our second time at Rok:Brgr and I must say that our experience was much better this second time around. This prohibition 1920's style restaurant is so fun in style and decor. With an extensive food and drink menu including over 65 different beers from around the country, our waitress was great in keeping the drinks, apps and food flowing. We were crammed in at our table tight tight tight, but the weather was so beautiful out that there was no way we were sitting inside! 

The food here is good, though I feel a little pricey. You're paying for the ambiance and those gourmet burgers get you! As winner of the 2011 New Times Best Restaurant in Broward County & The Channel 10 Best Burger Contest it's definitely worth checking out. The D Wade, Las Olas and Prime Burger all sound so yummy. Andy likes ordering the salad that comes with a burger on the side... Yum! The fries are also great (Truffle or not).

Rachel ordered the build your own burger with Kobe beef and a monstrous amount of toppings....

We ended up having a great night!. All of us were filled to our maximum beef, salad and ultimate brownie overload capacity. Since we were celebrating Jarred's birthday they were great about bringing desserts (with a candle) for us to have our fiesta too. I should also mention that the manager was super cool about bringing out our special request (that ultimate brownie is no longer on the menu) -  You can check out the menu for yourself here.

I'm sure we'll be back many many more times... Such a great spot downtown!
