Rockit Burger Bar fits right in as part of Rockit Ranch Productions' Chicago-based empire of hip gastropubs and innovative fusion spots. Its chefs enhance beloved American comfort foods with inventive flourishes and haute-cuisine ingredients, high-end foodstuffs such as truffle creme fraiche, locally raised Midwestern beef, and red-onion brioche buns feature prominently on the impressive lineup of burgers, and flatbread pizzas show off toppings of wild mushrooms, gruyere cheese, and calabrese salami. Diners cap off their feasts with caramel-banana milk shakes and warm brownie sundaes, or supplement dinners with frosty craft beers and cocktails mixed with rye, absinthe, and bitters.
Rockit Burger Bar's uniquely rustic yet upscale interior bristles with eccentricity and fun, with multiple moose antlers dangling above the bar space and huge windows filling the room with light and lively street scenes. Located across the street from Wrigley Field, the space is a hub of constant activity, whether from Sunday brunchers chowing down on waffles and breakfast burritos, or ticketless baseball fans trying to peer through the stadium walls with x-ray goggles.
