After naming ROK:BRGR the best burger joint in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach in 2011, the New Times Broward-Palm Beach repeated the honor in 2012. "If you take apart" one of the restaurant's 17 handcrafted burgers, the paper claimed, and "dissect it into its basic components, you'll figure out why ROK:BRGR deserves this award."
Said components are all local and farm-to-table, from artisan cheese to certified Angus beef. To crown his beef patties, Chef Robbyns Martinez uses everything from chorizo and red-onion marmalade to cave-aged gruyère, which is harvested by spelunking cows. Besides beef, ROK:BRGR's specialties include a free-range turkey burger topped with baby arugula and an ahi-tuna burger drizzled with wasabi mayo.
Innovative twists on comfort food round out the menu, from lobster corn dogs to bacon-infused Kobe meatloaf. Bacon reappears on ROK:BRGR's roster of handmade cocktails, which includes an updated old fashioned made with bacon-infused Maker's Mark. Along with cocktails, more than 65 domestic craft beers can accompany meals.

For anyone looking to do more than just take home the ingredients of their next meal, a hefty salad bar, wraps, and a great assortment of prepared foods can be purchased and eaten at the market’s many picnic tables. In addition to the farm’s own offerings, there are many small local vendors who sell spices, beans, soaps and juices.
