This was an unexpected find on our road trip. I had the Ruben and the beans which were yummy. Everyone else in our group liked their food too. The people were friendly and chatty. It was the perfect break from the road. We had a little trouble finding it, but just called them and they gave us directions. It was worth it.

My wife and I were both blown away by the quality experience. Great food and service. It's not fast food but the wait is well worth it.

Thanks for taking time to give us a review! We enjoyed having you with us and you'll notice when you get to come back and dine with us in the future, we have shortened our guest-wait time by trimming the menu back to only the top favorites. We spice the days up by have different, fun daily specials and home made desserts. Look forward to seeing you again soon! - The Roost Family (Christy, Cathie, Kylie, Cara, Cari, Carla and Freddy)

So glad you love the burgers! Always happy to see you walk through the door. We take real pride in that our meat comes from the top, fresh-food provider, has not been frozen and we make the patties to order rather than order ready-made patties! Thanks for showing your appreciation by taking the time to give us this review! The Roost Family

You know how you can walk into a chain and feel welcomed but something is missing. It's the warmth of love that should be put into food. The Roost is that warmth. They are an amazing group of people, I will say I feel a little spoiled from time to time. They made sure I was taken care of when my Dad passed away and continue to. For my birthday they made me a cake without being asked to. These are the people you want to make your lunch or dinner!! I dare you to try the things you have never heard of when you stop by. And like any good chef they want your feedback and ideas.

The Roost is a must TRY place. Try to leave without visiting to the staff.... it's not going to happen. The second you hit that door to come in your family!
