Rony's Rock Burger, Glen Rock, NJ

The Who Burger

Burger, Grilled Onions, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato & Buffalo Ranch Sauce

I've been wanting to try Rock Burger for a while now and I'm glad I did. My co-worker Vincent and I got there early (about 11:45am) and found the place all to ourselves. Rony was behind the counter and he could not have been a nicer, more polite host. Vincent ordered the "Cowboy" burger and I uncharacteristically got caught up in the menu choices and ordered something other than a basic cheeseburger with raw onion and pickle - I ordered "The Who" burger as if in a trance - but made up for it later (I'll explain, keep reading). Vincent's "Cowboy Burger" came topped with onion rings, bacon, Cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, lettuce and tomato and judging by the decibel level of the yummy noises coming from his direction I'd say he loved it - But this review is about "The Who" burger. I can't be sure how many ounces the burger was but I'd guess around 6 to 7. All the toppings were fresh, including the roll and especially the meat which Rony told us is a special mixture of brisket, porterhouse tips and chuck. Even the shoestring-ish fries were good and crispy and full of flavor. I had a tip from an office colleague to ask for the "Rock Sauce" to dip the fries in.. it was very good also, If I had to guess, I'd say it was a mixture of mayo, black pepper and Old Bay seasonings. Am I close? What ever was in there, it was spicy and addicting... nice job Rony. I'm giving my "The Who" Burger an 8.5/10 do to the slightly difficult "eat-ability" factor which made it a bit tough to thoroughly enjoy the burger... my roll just kept getting soaked with sauce and falling apart, not because it was stale, but because the toppings just overcame the bread. After finishing the burger, I ordered another from Rony, (I just couldn't leave without trying the burger that I should have ordered in the first place) - a cheeseburger with American cheese, a little raw onion and pickle slices... it was awesome! If I am ever asked for advice on what to order at Rock Burger, I'll say, go for the extra $2 bucks and get a double cheeseburger with minimal toppings if any - you'll get a great sandwich with that great old fashioned burger flavor that will undoubtedly be a 10/10.

This was the plain CB I ordered for seconds.... the photo doesn't come near to doing it justice....

The next three photos are of the Cowboy Burger....


  1. You didn't have the place all to yourselves for long because I was right behind you. :D

    I couldn't help overhearing you talking to Rony, and then of course the telltale stealth picture taking led me to figure you had a blog.

    Anyway, what temp was your burger ordered and served? Unfortunately mine was ordered m/r and came out well. I found the bun to be unexceptional, but I enjoyed the Rony sauce. He's onto something there.

    Nice job on the blog. Keep up the burger reviews!

  2. I had a feeling we were on the same mission, I saw you take a few photos as soon as you arrived. Too funny. I ordered my burger m/r and got well also... and you are spot on with the roll as well. The fact is, I find it harder each day to beat on a local small burger guy trying to make it in an economy that's almost in the toilet so sometimes I don't think it's all that necessary to mention all the "little details" that are quite possibly one-off issues. (If it were a chain or much larger establishment, believe me, I would've ripped 'em a new one). I hope you understand... I read your stuff as often as time allows... very good, honest, raw, love it.

  3. Great job Bill, I do Rony's Social Media... I have enjoyed the review, great job... keep up this blog... love the set up...
