The Orillia Trail winds its way from Couchiching Park through Tudhope Park and ends at the Narrows, where an old railway swing bridge sits, harking back to an era where railway traffic employed the trail bed. Literally a stone's throw away from the Narrows is Roosters, with a couple of paths, one paved, leading from the trail right to the Rooster's parking lot. Roosters was recently licenced by the LCBO so that is a plus for people thirsty from walking or biking the trail or needing a refresher after trying their luck ice fishing. The Steamwhistle draft was very nice and we complemented it by ordering the rooster tails. For the uninformed, these are un-split wings, with the tips intact. My wife had honey garlic and I had the Frank's red hot, as my name is Frank, an uncomon name these days when all kids are given designer names, like Aiden and Quinn. The wings were very tasty and were the perfect accoutrement to the cold draft beer. Our waitress was attentive and provided exceptional service. The only negative from the meal were the fries, which are apparently supposed be fresh cut, but were a tad limp and somewhat soggy. Crispen up those fries and I'd have given Roosters an excellent rating. Anyway, they also have fresh soup, which I will try soon, and their signature fried chicken, which I also want to sample next time (as a change of pace from Orillia's signature fried chicken i.e. KFC). For a bit of a unique experience, wallk the Orillia trails, try the excellent ice fishing in lakes Simcoe and Couchiching and stroll to the Narrows, and stop in at Roosters and try their tails.
