Fun hole in the wall local place. Parking might be a challenge on a Friday night since the parking lot is small. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Neat little bar area but homey enough for families. Great fresh food! The chicken and rice with jaco sauce was delicious. The basil green beans were tasty and even my kids ate... More

I've been going to the Roasting Company since the mid 90's. The food hasn't changed much, because it's just that good. Everything is homemade and fresh. The chicken is amazing, and the homemade sides - there is something for everyone. Tons of flavor and interesting dishes. My favorite is the Chicken and Black Bean Combo. There is so much flavor...

We saw a clip on Roasting Company many many many years on a local food show. We tried it then ... we ate there yesterday. We've been there NUMEROUS times in between. The interior and exterior have been modified through the years but the food remains AMAZING! Some restaurants tweak their recipes or modify their menu - Roasting Company is... More

I love the chicken on rice with queso, and the squash casserole is fabulous. The white beans au gratin are good, but have lots of black pepper (so I can't eat them...)

Lunch is quick here. You can get full service or line up for your meal to eat there or on the run (take out). A basic restaurant with outside seating and fairly small seating inside. The chicken here is as good as you will find anyway! The chicken is what this place is all about.

I've been here twice now since moving to south charlotte and it's a great place. The Monterey chicken wrap is great, and I tried the chicken over rice last time with the Jaco sauce soooo good! Huge portions too!

Stopped in for lunch after a meeting and was a great surprise. Had the chicken with squash casserole and side of pasta salad. All three were great! Staff was quick and friendly, even letting me sample the pasta salad before I ordered it. Nice atmosphere. Did not have a drink, but the bar seemed to have a good selection of... More

We love to eat here! Great roasted chicken and sides. Some items sell out early, so call ahead if your heart is set on the chicken pot pie. Recommend the wings as well, but be prepared to wait on them. If no one else in your party is ordering wings, make sure they know to hold all orders and serve... More

Well, a restaurant is kind of forgettable when the most exciting thing about it is the salsa bar... but the salsa bar is pretty great! It is a pretty casual restaurant that is good for watching sports and having a basic meal. I guess that's about it.

I really wish they'd franchise this concept - it's so nice to be able to get a meal that isn't the usual "sandwich and chips" or "burger and fries". I often just get 3 or 4 sides. Ironically, that makes the service is even faster than "fast food" because they have all the sides ready to go. They've been moving... More
