Amazing wings! A must have with a cold pitcher of beer!
Ridiculous Poutine. Loads of brisket, curds and yummy gravy!
The crispy fries with aioli are the perfect pair with beer after Monday basketball games. Hot and salty, we always get a second round for the table!
We ordered four take out Rookie burgers, each with some sort of modification, for our four picky eaters. Each one was made exactly as specified and DELISH! Thanks, Rookie's for taking care of our vegan and vegetarian friends! Always coming through in the clutch!
Great burger. It wasn't my favorite long back, though after taking a break it is quite tasty now. One of my go to selections.
Rookies is a jewel of a family Sports Bar in the South End of Seattle. It is one of the best Sports Bars I have ever been too, its busy and lively on game days but it is so well balanced you be swept away with any of the games going on, or still have a conversation with the person across the table. A great staff keeps the food and drink flowing no mater how many people are rooting for the 'Hawks, Dawgs and Sounders, and soon I have no doubt, the Kraken The Rah Rah Rachel has become one of my favorite comfort foods. Really well done turkey version of the Rubin that is tasty and filling.
Always filling. Very good deal on the normal happy hour menu too.
Perfect combination of buffalo sauce over crispy chicken breast with cool drippings of Gorgonzola on homemade bun. It's the real deal!
Ooooo!! Okay, I didn't even know this is what I ordered, and damn! It showed up lookin like a snack for a snack (me), and was absolutely delightful! 10/10 will be back for these!
Rook's Old Fashioned
Boozy and elegant, the spice and citrus balance perfectly!
The Swiss and Mushroom burger is a new old favorite! Awesome juicy burger. Get one today!!!
Fantastic every single time, and singlehandedly responsible for my quarantine weight gain. We keep going back to this dish week after week: creamy ragu that perfectly highlights the meat, consistently al dente pasta, just overall flawless (a bit on the pricy side, but I have no problem with supporting a local business during these challenging times).
Great food and the NICEST people. Thumbs up!
They were fantastic! Very chripy but still super juicy, also lot of waffle frys!
Ribs were solid, cole slaw was so/so, mac and cheese was awesome!
This was an awesome dish, and just a ton of food. Tasted like bbq from a southern places that specializes in it!
This is a great sandwich, crispy and the buffalo sauce has great flavor.
I dream about this brisket (marbled, of course, since fat means flavor). It's hard to pick just two of the tasty sides and I usually default to the ooey-gooey mac and cheese and the tangy coleslaw. If you're craving pure comfort, this plate is a winner. Plus, generous portions mean I usually have enough leftovers for a second meal.
My busbands favorite quesadilla on Columbia City! Generous portion too, like everything at Rookies.
First time back since the lock down. I miss this place! The most friendly, relaxed, fun hangout in town and the same goes for the Backyard. Can't wait till we get back to "normal."
This is my absolute favorite. I cannot order without getting their Mac and Cheese. I also have my mom hooked on it too. She lives in Olympia and every time no come down she asks for these. Everything on the menu is very yummy. You can't go wrong with whatever you order.
The backyard bbq brisket hash is amazing! I love the sautéed peppers, onions, and mushrooms. And the brisket is so tender and flavorful.
Love how crispy their tater tots were, as well as the sauce options as well!
The best salad on earth! Fresh mixed greens, fried onions, and tender steak, covered with gorgonzola crumbles and the most delicious balsamic. What not to love?
The ribs might be my favorite item here. Great bbq sauce and tender to the bite!
My daughter absolutely LOVES these!! She can eat a whole order by herself at 4yrs old!! If im ever worried she hasn't eaten enough...i know the Mac balls will fill her right up!
So so so so good! First bbq I've liked in Seattle.
Excellent food and service! Rookies never disappoints!
Best wings in Seattle! Simple, straightforward, spicy. Love the blue cheese on the side. Can't go wrong with Rookies wings!
Rookies ain't no rookie! The location, set up and staff are superb, but this is all about the food, and they are on it. Everything's good here, but the meats is where it's at. The brisket is cooked perfectly, and very flavorful. Sides and sauces should be exactly that, and given the cuts, seasoning and preparation, you won't want any!
Rookies has the best food! The Brisket Poutine is the best poutine I've ever had. It exceeds 5 stars!
This was delicious, great combination of flavors and textures.
Phenomenal as always! The entire waitstaff and the crew behind the walls. Food is TOP NOTCH ! Wendy & Tony
Honestly i have podcast called tasty burgers booze and broads so i sample burgers from all over and i can honestly say that this place is fantastic. It 10/10 would recommend for anyone.
The wings here are top notch! Cannot go wrong with any flavor; I think the classic buffalo and garlic Parmesan are premier.
As a longtime Columbia City resident (and one without cable for sports) I've been a frequent Rookies guest since they opened. I've tried nearly everything on the menu but the sandwich I always come home to is the B.E.L.T. Thick bacon and a medium egg creates just the right protein mixture with lettuce and tomato on sourdough bread. I will never fail to add an "A" to the acronym---a slice of avocado makes a great sandwich the best sandwich. The entire menu at Rookies features great food, but the B.E.L.T.(A) is comfort food to me.
Wonderfully tasty sandwich. Gorgonzola and buffalo sauce are amazing together!
Best breakfast burrito ever. Eggs are perfectly cooked, fake meat options, fresh veggies, and who doesn't love tater tots? I try to make it at least once a week.
