Sammy Hagar's Red Rocker
at Southland Park does push the idea that this is place that, indeed, rocks. There's the cool menu (above) and such menu items as the Red Rocktail (Hagar-branded rum, plus peach schnapps!), Head Banging Shrimp, and the Three Meat Box hamburger. But they're not particularly obnoxious. And while one might expect it to pretty loud in there, and maybe it is at night, at lunchtime, the scene was chill.
There's much to admire about the Red Rocker's BBQ veggie burger. The presentation, for one, with its fantastic almost-entire pickle garnish. The veggie patty itself is hearty, with just enough sauce for flavor not mess. It's topped with both pepper jack cheese and haystack onions. Everything works.
