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.

Have eaten there multiple times and each time it is for the burgers. If you want a great burger, this is the place to go! Atmosphere is homely, cozy and friendly.

This is our 2nd time back. We found this last year via trip advisor on our way to Florida from Texas. My absolute favorite eating place the whole trip! I tried the cheeseburger this time-oh my goodness!! My niece said it was the best chicken sandwich she has had. In my opinion the curly fries were just ok..not crispy enough... More

I know a lot of people go to Rooster's for their hamburgers but I prefer their chicken tenders. The fries are great, as well.

If you want the best hamburger ever-this is the place. Wonderful beef cooked to perfection. My favorite is jalapeño cheeseburger on a jalapeño roll. The bread is baked fresh. They must grind their own meat because my husband gets his rare. I wasn't kidding about eating here everyday. Tonight hamburger steak and onions, yesterday country fried steak, last week hamburger...

The wife is crazy about this place. We usually make it on a Saturday. She has the burger and I either have the red beans and rice or chicken fried steak. Never any complaints. Lots of great food!!

Not OMG great but overall good. Great service. I had Jalapeño chicken sandwich and hubby had chicken fried steak. Onion rings can be skipped, no real flavor(needed salt and pepper or something added). We'd come back.

The red beans and rice is delicious! Great sausage! Spice level was just perfect. The side salad - usually bland at most restaurants - was incredible, too. Can't wait to go back soon.
