If you like hotdogs this place is by far the best, bar none. Puts the Varsity to shame, seriously. Chili-slaw dog with onions on a buttered and toasted side-sliced bun from the fresh bakery next door is unbelievable. I think the pickles that come with it are actually pickled green tomatoes. This has been a working classic soda fountain continuously since 1941 when it was opened up as part of a CVS(?) pharmacy. Treat yourself. And, of course, the milkshakes are fabulous.

The old soda fountain of my childhood in the 1950s is alive and well in Brevard, NC. Rocky's has fast and courteous service, a reasonably large and varied menu, and the food, ice cream floats, and sundaes were great! I would highly recommend the "Smokin" turkey sandwich with apricot chutney. Oh my gosh was that delicious!!

It's a guilty indulgence...grilled cheese with bacon and tomato?! Yes. Chocolate and peanut butter milk shake?! Yes. You can't go wrong here. Old school soda shop with great people, service, food and ice cream. Where else can you buy Pez?!

If you enjoy Brevard you obviously enjoy the small southern town charm, with a sophisticated flare. Rocky's fits that too a T. The atmosphere is a throwback to the 50-60-70's type soda shop. The food is the fresh homemade type you would expect for that era. And yes I lived in the era and know. It also has the modern twist and options of the now. But... The now twist are super fresh and home made. My wife and I love Brevard we will and always visit Rocky's. I reccomend you try the hot dogs and be adventurous. When they use jalapeño in the meals you get the flavor without the burn. Easily one of the best dinners in America.

A great place for ice cream and hamburgers. Reminded me of the old soda fountain shops. I had a chocolate malt and had a hamburger and both were just great. I would highly recommend stopping their for lunch.
