great take away food, always busy, great food at great low prices, cant go wrong, staff are very friendly.
I love their burgers and chipsAt lunchtime gets even more busy as there are a few schools nearby and at night when people come back from a night out they normally stop to grab some food.
Thursday. Wet. Gray Day. T'was the scent of damp in the airOh Fuck it, Let's Go Rocky's.
That's basically how it started. One dreary day after a conundrum of conformity questions we set of on what must be the longest distance any sane man has ever gone to get a meal. Damn it better be good.
Possibly the most talked about fast food shop ever known, it has a facebook fanbase of over 3000 members. Not surprising then that my expectations were at Lamborghini level, but what I got was a Volvo. Not bad. Could have done better. Mediocre. Average.
To start with, my visions of a glittering temple of fast food were shattered by on exterior that looked like it was designed by Zeeshan on Microsoft paint.
Little consolidation was found inside either when my nostrils were greeted with the aroma of sour milk and hospital wards. Poor start.
Finally after being blanked by a polish woman [AT ROCKY'S?!] at the counter a beefy bald man came and took our ordersin punjabi. Nice touch.
So we waited for our food. And we waitedand waited and waited some more. Fast food? I think not. 10mins for some chips. I could have grown a potato quicker.
Anyway the arrival of the chips meant I could finally do what I came to do: munch some Rocky's. the food apparently was what it was all about. This was it, I was going to experience the legend.
As it touched my tongue I could feel the power, the greatness I could smell what the rocky's cookin'-hold on. No. I lie. I couldn't. I twas an ordinary chip. If anything it was over ketchuped and ruined by the beefy bald man.
So why go to Rocky's? their food as far as I can tell is parallel to chicago's and it's quicker to fly to Manchester. The real deal about rockys is that it's a legend. It has a story behind it. Going there gives a sense of achievement and no amount of minimum wage food can take that away from it.
This is a massively popular late night food take away, with favourites like chilli chicken burger with cheese, donner burger with curly fries and pizzas. The food is made fresh on the spot, but there is always a queue due to it's popularity with all the late night revellers. You cannot go wrong with it's filling portions and tasy condiments. This place is open until 3am most nights.
The ignoramus employees at Rockys will conveniently say that the food they sell is halal (if you ask them), even though they have to inkling as to what constitutes halal food, in Islamic fiqh. The reason they say this is probably to dupe Muslims into buying, to make a fast buck.
They don't even have a certificate from any organisation which certifies that the food they sell is halal. Even if they did, that doesn't necessitate that the food is halal. It's very easy to Photoshop certificates nowadays, and not every restautrant that has a legitimate certificate sells halal food. Check out: news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/engl…
Few can match the taste and quality of Rocky's food articles. The only negative point for this joint is its long waiting period to be served due to excessive crowd. But it recieves full marks
Tasty, inexpensive, fast.
