Intergalactic Atmosphere

When you visit The Rocket, you’ll feel like you’ve simultaneously traveled to another galaxy while also traveling back in time. That’s because of the combination of checkered floors that reminds you of 1950’s cafes and the vibrant walls with painted black ceilings.

You’ll also feel like you’ve time traveled, thanks to their milkshake bar. Here, you can savor all your favorite pastime shakes, like the Chocolate Exploration, Centauri Strawberry, or Venetian Vanilla shakes. Otherwise, you can enjoy a milkshake beamed down from another galaxy, like the Galactic Gracie Rocky Moon Shake.

When you’re looking to start up, the Ignition Wings served with your choice of sauce is exactly what you need. Once you’ve launched into space, you’ll pass by Saturn Onion Rings and Flying Saucers (fried green tomatoes).

If you can’t decide on just one appetizer, why not order the Orbital Appetizer Platter? With this, you can choose three of your favorite appetizers to enjoy.

Sandwiches & Burgers

When you’re in the mood for a delicious sandwich, you can’t go wrong with The Lift Off Grilled or Fried Chicken Sandwich or the Solar Eclipse Black Bean Burger—an out-of-this-world specialty! You’ll feel your energy levels are full with either these sandwiches, especially since they’re served with your choice of side.

The Big Dipper Fried Cheesecake at The Rocket near Albany GA

When you’re looking to try one of their old-fashioned hamburgers, you may not be able to choose just one of their nearly dozen delicious options. Our favorite has to be the When Pigs Fly burger, which includes beef, fresh bacon, and cheddar cheese that’s served on a brioche bun.

Are you up for a challenge? Go ahead and order “The Rocket’s Burger Challenge” burger. This 3-pound Bacon Rocket Burger and pound of French fries will help separate the space cadets from the intergalactic heroes.


On top of their retro milkshake bar, you can also choose to finish off your meal with one of their three desserts: The Milky Way Peanut Butter Cup Blondie; The Big Dipper Fried Cheesecake; or The Black Hole, “Rocky Moon” Brownie.
