A word from Rockit Burger Bar
Rockit Ranch Productions announces Rockit Burger Bar, across from Wrigley Field at Waveland & Clark. This evolution of Rockit Burger Bar comes as the result of an overwhelming response from North side patrons, social media enthusiasts and restaurant reviewers, all craving more burger selections specifically at the Wrigleyville location, wanting more of Rockit’s quality burgers at an affordable price – unique from Rockit River North, where the diverse menu is heavily requested by guests.
Rockit’s passion for burgers is a natural progression for the brand, with the Rockit Burger having received Best Burger praise from Good Morning America and Citysearch, to name a few. Rockit Burger Bar welcomes the new season and its new menu from executive chef Amanda Downing, which includes: 16 mouth-watering gourmet burgers, flatbread pizzas made in-house in an authentic Italian brick oven, signature salads and weekend brunch, in addition to a selection of specialty cocktails & beers.

Diner Reviews
  • "First time there and we loved it! Close to Wrigley which was really nice!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Rockit is a great neighborhood spot with an interesting list of burgers. There is something for everyone. Husband loves The Hottie. We've tried most of the list and each is worthy competition to some of the best burger joints in town. Always cooked to perfection. The chopped Southwestern salad is delish. Love their Mac and cheese, especially the one with the short ribs. They have a pretty good beer list, too. Location across from Wrigley can be crowded, but once the game starts it's perfect. Fantastic sidewalk area for al fresco dining. Perfect spot during concerts at Wrigley. You can get dinner and a concert."

  • "The selection of IPA beers is great! Burgers come in all form of ingredients...even for the vegetarian at our table. My Rockit-named burger was Kobe and cooked to a perfect medium rare. Also, the bbq pork nachos melted in my mouth! A must-visit when in Chicago...it's a block off the 'L'."

  • "The food/burgers are always delicious! Our server seemed to come over every 2 minutes and stop for long conversations, which was a little irritating, since I was trying to have a good conversation over dinner and kept getting interrupted. Other than that Rockit is always great - great food, great drinks, and great location!"

  • "This a fun place to people watch and have a great burger and some of the best fries anywhere. It's perfect for a last minute dinner out."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Clark and Waveland right across from Wrigley. Get here by 5:30 or 5:45, get a nice table outside, have one of a variety of interesting burger combinations (e.g., venison burger with fois gras) and be to the Cubs 7:05 evening game with time to spare. Obviously you'll have to come earlier for a 6:05 game."

  • "Stopped in for a burger and truffle fries. The best! If I'm going to eat for fun, this is one of the places I'm going to go. "

  • "The burger selection is fabulous. The ones we had were great. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Nothing like a rare burger with a toasted bun. You can add what ever you can imagine to the burger one can imagine. The beef was tender, juicy and had a really good flavor. We had onion rings first which proved to be a good choice also. Usually I'm not a fan of a heavier battered onion ring but they were an exception! Get there on the earlier side if you'd rather a quieter experience."

  • "as always, wonderful food, service, ambiance (before a Cubs game), no surprises here. the burgers, salads are fantastic. prices in line with comparable establishments. excellent service. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We stopped in for brunch before heading over to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game on Sunday. We had burgers and Bloody Mary's. Both were fantastic! I had the mushroom truffle burger, my husband had the venison foie gras burger. Both were delicious, but the better of the two in our opinion was the burger with foie gras! YUM! And the spice bar for the Bloody Mary's was great; we both took advantage and embelished our drinks just the way we like them. Rockits was packed before the game, but the staff was friendly and efficient and got us in and out in a timely manner without making us feel rushed. We will definitely stop in again before or after a game."

  • "I can't handle red meat, so I tried the turkey burger here. Absolutely terrible. Undercooked, mushy, and no flavor. On top of it all, my side salad was nothing more than shredded lettuce, sprinkled cheese, and a few diced tomatoes. It was as if I ordered it from Taco Bell. I'm not coming back here. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Enjoyed lunch before a cubs game. Mac with braised beef is amazing, group had salads and burgers. Nobody went away hungry."

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Burgers lack consistency visit to visit. Mine tasted totally different this time--and not in a good way. Ingredients were left actually left off my meal. We'll be back eventually, but this was a disappointment. Oh, and skip the cheeseburger hot pocket. Dry and boring. "

  • "The only thing better than the food was the service of Matti, our waitress."

  • "Rockit Burger Bar has great burgers - a great beer selection - and great service. I try to go back any time I go to Metro or am in the Wrigleyville area."

  • "Our group felt the burgers tasted incredible and loved the variety of choices. Also enjoyed several types of specialty beers."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I had the Johnny Apple burger and it was one of the best burgers I've ever tasted and I've been to a ton of burger bars in Chicago. This was an amazing combination of flavors that fit together perfectly. They have a nice craft beer selection so I got to try some new suds. The service was good. Fun atmosphere. I am looking forward to returning."

  • "Met up for an informal meeting on a Wednesday night. Good food and service. Will come back, it's a great spot in the neighborhood for better food and beer than regular wrigley bars."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The best thing about my Tuesday night visit was the staff: polite, patient (my dinner guest was late, but I was seated and checked on regularly), friendly—all-around wonderful. The burgers were fine—the beef moist and not overcooked, the salmon more of a fillet really—and the mac'n'cheese really cheesy and flavorful. Being a sports bar, it is loud, getting more so as the evening goes on, but it was cool to see young professionals and old die-hards mixing together. The beer list looked long, but my margarita was excellent—a bit boozy and a bit tart, and really big! The worst thing is parking—being so close to the Stadium, with towing enforced when the Cubs are playing; there are two public lots close by, if you want to pay the price."

  • "My Wife and I are avid karaoke people, and when we heard they had it in Chicago we had to check it out. We had a great meal, the beers were awesome (tons of microbrews) and very knowledgeable staff. The Manager came over and talked to us for a while, made us feel right at home. We sang, made some new friends, and had a great time."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Rockit was great but the service wasn't the best. They were training new staff members, so it's understandable that they were delayed but it could have been better."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food at Rockit Burger Bar was very good. They have many options for burgers. Some toppings I never would have thought to put on a burger were surprisingly good (braised beef, chorizo mac and cheese). The service was ok. I thought the waitress could have been a little more attentive, considering it was not crowded. I would go back."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Our waitstaff was great but food was just ok. Mushroom burger truffle way too overbearing, made it inedible"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Right across from Wrigley Field, enjoy a burger before the game. Disappointed that the mac attack had a premade burger patty. Expected something better for price, location, decor and Today Show piece on 10/15."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "If you're in a burger mood, give this place a try. So many choices! Our table tried three burgers, piled so high with toppings such as smokey cheese, grilled onions and onion rings or mac & cheese with short ribs, that it was hard to bite into this meal on a bun!! Next time, I'm going for the Mac & Cheese Attack - the bun is actually made from fried mac & cheese!!! Also tried a BBQ pork flat bread and it was really good. Very good selection of beers to go with your choice. There were only two dessert choices on the menu, perhaps no one ever has room for it?? Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great burgers, nice offering for topping, TOO DIE FOR Truffle Fries!!!! A good beer selection, About to get GREAT!"

  • "Went for trivia on Thursday night. Food was very good."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "My husband and I have been here many times. I always get the Rockit burger, which is so delicious. He got the burger with apple and brie on it, which was also very good. Those truffle fries are yummy, too."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Three of our 8 person party got a good burger and the rest of us were so disappointed, we sent our food back. The turkey burger was dry and they messed up another two burgers (giving them to wrong people at the table -- same burgers but cooked to different temperatures -- error not realized until burgers were 1/3 gone) -- service was indifferent and slow (we had to ask for everything), kitchen runner didn't know how to read a ticket to place food properly at the correct diner (restauranting 101) and we had to track down our server for beer refills and our water glasses were never replenished. We wanted dessert and had to ask our server for it. She had it packaged to go! The meal was a joke and full of errors. We will not be back."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "I would recommend coming hungry if you order one of the (very unique) burgers as they are massive, and so delicious that you'll eat every bite. My friend's fries were cooked with truffle oil & parsley and were phenomenal. Our waitress accommodated my request to bring my friend the brownie dessert with a birthday candle. Friendly place with a dining area separate from the bar. Seems like a nice place to watch sports from, too."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Great place. Went in to watch American Horror Story : Coven. Great sound. Comfortable seating. Drink specials were great, tried the whiskey flight and a Makers cocktail. DELICIOUS. The fries tossed in truffle oil were definitely the highlight of the evening. My friend and I could not stop eating them even though we both ordered burgers. Turkey burger was amazing, great flavor and the pretzel bun was super fresh. All in all this was a very accomodating experience and the perfect atmosphere to watch a spectacular spooky show that requires enough quiet to get into the drama."

  • "Unique selections for burgers! But the burger itself was average. Great selection of beer, too."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Had a simple black angus burger that I shared with my friend, it was perfecto. And the truffle fries are addicting. So damn good could have eaten every one on the plate. A definite must!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Our waitress seemed very stressed and it was obvious she was one of the few servers on staff that night. We waited awhile for our drinks, but the food came quick and we all enjoyed our meal."

  • "Stopped here before a Cubs game with clients on a Tuesday night. Delicious, as always. Had the BBQ Chicken Pizza and the Mushroom Truffle burger - amazing! The margarita pitchers are great, as is the beer list. Definitely would recommend hanging out on the patio pre-game."
