I had the blandest red beans and rice that I have ever tried. Hot wasn't the problem. There were slices of pickled jalapenos on top and hot sauce on the table. The problem was the lack of any discernable seasoning including salt. Red beans and...More

I found out after I ate that more seating was outside the restaurant in the lobby of the main building it is located in. The outside seating adds to the inviting dinning experience. I had the chicken mushroom sandwich, it was heavenly. The fries looked...More

I recently ate lunch at Rooster's for a lunch date. The food was very good and the service was friendly. While the menu may not be wildly diverse, our meals were very tasty. Rooster's burgers and onion rings are probably some of the best around.
