Broosters is known for the chicken. The chicken was everything that was promised. When we place our order, they asked if we wanted a 1/2 slab of ribs for $9.00. I am glad we dis as the ribs were excellent. I am not sure why we did not come here before but it now on our list of favorite places... More

I work nearby and a co-worker told me about this place. I ordered the Half chicken and half rack of ribs meal. It came with 2 sides and Texas toast. I have a very hearty appetite folks and I had trouble finishing it. The food itself was excellent. The ribs are soooo tender and practically fall of the bone. The... More

Servers are friendly and considerate. We eat there several times a year. Watch for their BOGO coupons. We usually have the steak dinners. Hubby had the chicken dinner once, and it was not enough food for him. You get soup or salad, meat, Texas toast, and one side. We bring our own wine, which is a real plus. You place... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and wanted to find some food we could take back to our room. Checked Trip Advisor (of course!) and found Broosters. Ordered a family pack which provided us with a whole chicken, two generous sides and four slices of Texas Toast. The chicken was OK, nothing exceptional, somewhat dry and overcooked but it... More

We were staying at hotel nearby and came across Brooster's and decided to carryout based on previous reviews. The staff was very friendly. They had a roll of paper towel that I was able to take as much as I needed. The only thing I forgot was silverware but any reputable hotel will take care of you when you forget... More

This establishment has been here for years and I just never took the time to review this restaurant. The chicken is out-of-this-world! We have catered it many times for family events and have never been disappointed. This chicken is cooked over an open flamed and is actually healthy, no frying! A quick and healthy alternative for dinner. We also enjoy... More

I dined here for lunch with co-workers. So great! The chicken was delicious and tender. I ordered the chicken burrito, it's really more like a chicken ceaser salad wrap, but great nonetheless. I loved the flavor and they even grilled the burrito shell. Service was great and the were friendly and helpful. The mashed potatoes and gravy was tasty. The... More

This place has the best roasted chicken. They're marinated well and so tasty. It can be dry sometimes but I prefer it that way occasionally. They cook it in front of you so you know it's really fresh. With $15, you can feed a whole family (whole chicken, 3 large sides and Texas toast) and still have leftovers.

If you want a fast tasty chicken or steak meal this is the place. Diner like atmosphere yet great service. Chicken is cooked on a bbq grill and comes to the table moist and tasty. I recommend getting an extra order of cole slaw it is by far the best I have had, creamy good. You place your order at... More

I'm glad to have found Brooster's. The food is terrific, especially the chicken. We order from there often- taking out a lot, especially for family get togethers. A lot of the food is great- steaks are excellent, especially for the price- but the chicken is so good, that we almost always get that.
