Rockfire grill made it to my favorites of 2017 List mostly for one reason: The Flatbread. Imagine a combination of Naan bread mixed with a French roll. It’s really what differentiates them from a lot of other sandwich places in Orange County.
I was torn between two burgers: the carnitas burger with feta cheese and jalapenos or the O.M.G burger. I didn’t want to order the O.M.G on principal (I don’t support dirty millennial internet lingo) until I realized that it stood for “onion, mushroom, and garlic.” It took a minute, but I made my choice.
Rockfire Grill’s O.M.G Burger
- 2 burger patties
- Cheddar and American cheese
- Carmelized onion/Jalapeno
- Mushroom and roasted garlic
- Garlic Aioli
- House made Flatbread
Rockfire Grill’s flatbread is cut like a pita pocket preventing anything from falling out the back. All the different ingredients made for a chaotic flavor profile, every bit competing for dominance. The garlic aioli was more subtle as it had trouble standing up to everything else, so I used the house sauce to add a little more flavor. What really made the burger great was the basics: nicely carmelized burger patties, melted cheese, and their signature flatbread.
If you’re looking for a little more spice, they bring a small buffet of sauces for your tasting pleasure: Ketchup, garlic aioli, spicy sauce, and house sauce. The most popular is their garlic aioli, but don’t sleep on the house sauce, it’s like a smokey thousand islands dressing and totally worth a try.
They also have locations in Long Beach and Huntington Beach!
