I just happen to come across this post and while it was a little while ago I wanted to share. Thanks for everyone's support, our family as well as the Rookies family greatly appreciates everyone's support. This is by far our best selling and most enjoyed burger. No veggies, just meat and cheese! 😄

This is the Wisconsin Burger at Rookies in Clive. This is probably one of the better burgers we have had in the Dsm metro area! 🙂 The burger has a garlic parmesan crust on the sourdough bread. The 1/2 pound burger was perfectly cooked to my specifications and super juicy. We had bacon added to the Cheddar, American, and Swiss cheeses. 🙂 Fantastic burger all around. The house made kettle chips were crunchy and their home made garlic chip dip was a great addition. We could have easily split the dish. We are each taking half home. 🙂 I have had the Rookies Texas burger in the past and was equally impressed. They had prime rib for the special tonight and on Saturday, but we are just as happy with the burgers!!:) While you are here, get a grapefruit Moscow mule!!!!! 🙂 they also make all of their own soup. It's busy tonight with a steady stream of customers. We haven't had a bad meal here since the new owners took over a while ago. We will definitely be back!:)

Vanessa McKelveyThe Wisconsin burger is still one of my faves around.... even a year and a half after this initial review was written! 🙂 I would also vote Rookies as having the best fried mushrooms around as well. The beer batter is awesome! I could eat them as a meal! The staff is always friendly here and does a great job! I had my 40th birthday party in the private room in April. All the guests were so happy with the food and the fantastic staff all around. Rookies is our neighborhood go to for a quick, tasty meal or a good drink after a hard day at work. 🙂
