Stopped many times when we lived in Cushing,Ok. Great food always. Real reasonable prices. great atmosphere.


From Nancy Livengood on 02/18/11

Found out about The Rock Cafe on this website travelok.com. Waitresses really nice & friendly and gave good service. We enjoyed the Jagerschnitzel with spaetzle & gravy. Also had the Rueben sandwich and a scrumptious bread pudding with rum sauce. All was really good, but the Rueben was a little too greasy for my taste. Price of our meals was very reasonable.


From SUSAN E SMOOT on 10/17/10

We saw this on Travel Ok and took a bike ride out to try it. They were wonderful and the food was great. Just glade we got there ahead of the bike group of 20+ people.
