First visit ever- tried the Mephis Style Pork Sandwich with fries. Pork was spiced well and perfectly moist. Fries were crispy, and tasted like they were cooked in clean clean oil. The 2 employees were super nice. Totally recommend!

We stopped in because we were down on Randolph Ave., and it was fine, but I wasn't that impressed. For one, while the meat is decent (re-heated on the grill), most everything else was average: the buns were cheap white buns, which have a certain hip-ness perhaps but are below standard these days. The BBQ sauce was served up in... More

This is the kind of neighborhood joint that typifies the St. Paul dining scene. Strictly a takeout place, but the food is delicious. The fried chicken is crisp on the outside, but juicy and flavorful on the inside. The ribs are tender and doused in a smokey sweet sauce. The BBQ sandwich is huge. Prices are reasonable, and your order... More

The pulled pork sandwiches are delicious, and huge. Good value. The menu is small, and there are only a few tables, it's primarily a take-out place. It's nice to see them focus on a few things done really well.

I've been going to Roosters for 15 years. The fried chicken is amazing, sooooo juicy. The everyday special, pulled pork BBQ sandwich and fries is a pile of greatness, and the BBQ chicken is just plain awesome.

Love their ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. I have been eating here for years and their ribs are some of the best in the Cities. Take out is best as the place is small and sort of a dive. BTW: A small sandwich is anything but small.

I just love this place. It's located a couple of blocks from my work place and I just enjoy the food this people make. The sasson is unique and I'm sure you're going to love it.

If you’re looking for a nice sit down dinner this is not the place you want. BUT, if you’re looking for some of the best chicken (BBQ’d & fried) and ribs in St. Paul, look no further. Rooster’s served some of the best tasting fried chicken I’ve had in a long, long time. Maybe since the last time I had... More
