Recently, I went to Rok Burger, which is a "burger bar and gastropub" in Fort Lauderdale. I went with my friend Lauren, as we had both been wanting to try it for quite some time. It was funny because once I got there, I had realized I had actually been there before, back when I had first moved to Fort Lauderdale in May, 2013. Luckily, I remembered that both my mom and I had enjoyed it quite a bit when we went. So I was excited to be back! Lauren and I were craving some fried appetizers. So we ordered three appetizers to share. We selected the truffle fries, fried pickles, and lobster corn dogs.
Out of the three, my favorite was the fried pickles! I LOVE pickles in general, so it was a treat to devour the thick fried slices dipped in the smoked ranch dip. The lobster corn dogs were good... both the breading, and the meat was bit on the sweet side. The dipping sauce they paired it with was a spicy mustard, which I'd compare to a smoother Goldens. They were good... but I wouldn't order them again.
I'll be honest. I'm not a huge potato person (weird, I know). But these fries were fantastic. They also had parmesan cheese all over them, which was awesome. The serving was huge, and enough for 3 people to share.
I'd give Rok Burger 4/5 stars. The service was great. The decor was really cool with lots of exposed brick, and lots of variety of seating arrangements (inside, outside, bar, regular booths, huge booths, etc.). The food was fantastic, but I just wish those lobster corn dogs were paired with a different sauce. But Rok Burger is definitely a place to go back to!
