Rok:Brgr Las Olas

Went to Rok:Brgr tonight with several friends and it gets my stamp of approval. around the table we had:
The Classic Burger, the Rok:Brgr, the Las Olas Burger, the D Wade Burger, the FreeBird (turkey) burger, the Mediterranean (lamb) burger, and the Lobster Mac n Cheese.

(for descriptions:


personally i ordered the Mediterranean Burger, and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked, very juicy, the cucumber yogurt sauce was great, good brioche bun, and the fries it came with were crisp and well seasoned. the only burger i didnt get to try was the Las Olas, she ordered it Well Done (much to the table's dismay) so my opinion would have been skewed anyways. but similar reviews for all the other dishes. Also, the lobster mac was creamy, smooth, cheesy, with no seafood skimping to be seen.

only two slight knocks:
was there a few days ago, and the poutine was not my favorite. my friend from canada was there with us and he also told us it wasnt incredibly authentic tasting? but i wouldnt know.
also, the wait was a little longer than i would have liked. but our server was very nice and helpful (she even split checks which we forgot to request at the beginning... which ya dont see very often around here!)

really enjoyed this meal overall. will be bringing a new group of friends back soon.

  1. just to make sure the public is not mislead, while the Las Olas is a BURGER at ROK:BRGR, the restaurant is on himarshee/2nd ave, *NOT* Las Olas!

    But I second your opinion, it's pretty great. Best burgers in Fort Lauderdale.

      ah thanks for the clarification! i pretty much just refer to that whole area from himarshee-los olas as las olas... but im from davie not laudy so anything is higher class than our little rodeo town!

            I've been meaning to go back there. It's been at least 20 years since I've last been. I live pretty close to Tom Jenkins, Blue Willy's BBQ Truck, and two Texas Hold'ems (yet to try them) so it's hard to get myself motivated to go out west for BBQ but I liked it when it was a kid. Anything that still exists from my youth has to have something to it.

              If you live close to Jenkins then to me, you live close to Georgia Pig. What is it ten minutes away? I really like Jenkins and it is a regular stop for me when I fly into the airport at meal time,and I give that a broad definition. One time I time I flew in, ate spare ribs and sides at Jenkins and grabbed a pork sandwich and pie on my way to the Turnpike to head north. That pork sandwich is one of my all time favorite Q sandwiches from anywhere. Just yesterday I was sitting in a place called Daisey May in Manhattan, and I thought how much better that Pig sandwich is.

    2. I finally made it to Rok Burger after many years of wanting to go. I rarely make it down to FTL but the Rok burger (Vermont cheddar, bacon, bourbon BBQ sauce) was excellent. The fries and beer batter onion rings were good but the ketchup was not "house" unless that is what they call Heinz.
