Went to the Rockin' Comet for a friend's birthday breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised! Food was great, prepared quickly and served by a great waitress. Coffee was hot and service was quick. Recommend it for a good breakfast at a reasonable price.

My family likes to stop here after church. Sometimes there is a short wait, but many times we walk in and are seated immediately. Breakfast items are all very good! I have been twice for dinner... enjoyed my burger and banana split!!

The fried and bar b que chicken along with the spaghetti are the best specials. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. Good food for the cost. Ask for the senior discount.

On a Saturday evening when it wasn't busy, very hard to get service, food compared to a fast food restaurant, not an individualized menu. Not the cleanest place during this visit. What was apparent is that if you know an employee, you will get better...More
