Funky neighborhood, good food. Burgers are cooked to order, sides are generous and flavorful. Red beans are excellent.

Yep, this is a good place to eat. We had chicken over grits. Definitely good comfort food for southern folks. Well prepared and tasty and plentiful. They offer a wide array of burgers. I can't speak to how good they are but they seemed to have potential.

Best hamburger I've had in a while. The buns are worth the trip! This restaurant offered a lot of options for the burgers and chicken on the menu. Curly fries & onion rings were delicious. They have a good selection of sides, and homemade banana pudding for dessert. I'll definitely go back.

Stopped for lunch at this quaint restaurant located in an artsy district. Ordered the fried chicken sandwich with the jalapeño bun, Cole slaw, and onion rings. Food was flavor able and reasonably priced. A nice local flavor find!! Loved it.

We came here because it was recommended to us by some local people. The line was long and we waited a little while for our food. There was almost no seating available because the place was very busy. The burgers were good however. I wouldn't say it was the best or most interesting burger I've ever eaten, but it was... More

Whenever I'm in town to visit family, Rooster's is always one of the places I MUST VISIT before I head for home. They have the best chicken tenders plate - more than generous portion - that comes with two sides. I always have to get their killer onion rings (light, crispy batter) and a side salad with that delicious Comeback... More

We stopped here about an hour before closing and I'm very glad we did. The service was great! Thought we would get a little attitude since it was late but not at all. The staff was very helpful and nice. The burgers were even better! They even handed out banana pudding because they had so many extra and it was... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. My wife got the hamburger steak and gravy and I got the hamburger and fries. The fries make it worth going by themselves. The burger is great as well. My wife enjoyed her hamburger steak and salad. It is not the cheapest option but it's worth a try.

Meh. The burgers are 'meh' and the red beans and rice are bland and expensive, especially for being so mediocre. We won't go back; it was a waste of money.
