I love southern BBQ. It's my favourite type of food to cook at home and I love it when I find an authentic place to grab some true slow smoked brisket or ribs. Everything here is good.

Called for some info on menu and the person that answered was rude so I never went. Got wings at Rays instead.

We visited Rolly Rockets as a small group. Food came quickly, and we had ordered the Family Combo, which is a great amount of food for a group, but we had no plates. They don't use plates :-( It is difficult to share food with a table full of oversized baskets covered in paper. And cutting ribs on paper and... More

Rolly Rockets has counter service - you order and pay at the counter, and they will bring your food when it is ready. The portions are HUGE. I had the small (actually large!!) bbq chicken poutine and it was the best poutine I have had outside of Quebec. The chicken had been slowly cooking on the rotisserie for hours, and... More

We decided to venture to Rolly Rockets last Saturday. Service was great, food excellent. I loved the fact that after you order, they give you a number, your drinks and you choose your table. The food came out quickly, portions excellent, taste great! We both had the Beef Ribs dinner and neither of us finished what was on our plate.... More

Rolly Rockets is one step up from a fast food restaurant with regards to service: you order and pay at the counter then your meal is brought to your picnic table. We never saw the server again. Food was OK: 1/4 chicken was unremarkable and didn't taste like BBQ. Ribs were good but again, not really BBQ. Cornbread and bean... More

This was my first visit to Rolly Rockets. Let me say that the food was very good and reasonably priced. Nice portions too! Good price on the beer as well. I suppose the facilities are what you might say are typical for a southern BBQ place. Looks like a good place to party or get together with a few friends,... More
