...On the Rox...

You may think On the Rox Bar and Grill is just a bar with lousy food, but boy would you be wrong. My husband and I get cravings for On the Rox regularly (including right now just typing about it!)
If you are looking for one heck of a $4.50 meal...go to On the Rox during their HAPPY HOUR from 3-6 p.m. M-F! All the appetizers and panini's are half off. We really don't go any other time besides happy hour because the panini's and appetizers are our favorite things there...and because we are cheap students.

Our all time favorite is their braised beef brisket panini. The meat is tender and sweet and salty. You just have to try it for yourself. Their fries are some of the best in town, seasoned to perfection.

Here are some of the things we have tried:

Braised Beef Brisket Panini
Chorizo Panini
Carnitas Nachos
Waffles with bacon caramel
Crab Benedict
Fries: fried in duck fat, 
truffle oil, and just the regular

Do get the fries. If you are getting a basket, pay the extra to get them fried in duck fat!! If you are getting a panini, don't pay the extra just for the side, the regular fries are still awesome.
Do get the braised beef brisket panini, don't get the chorizo panini. The braised beef comes with an onion marmalade and just the right amount of gorgonzola. The chorizo panini has a weird flavor, and we usually love all things chorizo. 

Do get the carnitas nachos, don't get the waffles. The nachos are unique, with yummy braised pork and a fun kick of salsa verde and jalepenos. We were really disappointed with the waffles; they are too small and too dry. It's sad because the idea and flavor are so on point, just executed poorly.

 And try the crab benedict if you are okay with a really small breakfast, because the crab is delicious!
