Went to Happy Rooster with family and friends and wasn't disappointed! The menu for breakfast has lots to choose from, including egg beaters veggie omelet that is served with cottage cheese & toast. Coffee is plentiful and served with flavored creamers - large full pot left at table also. Home fries were toasted beautifully, bacon thick and crisp, pancakes large and flaky. Loved the murals on the walls and the service was fast and friendly. We arrived Saturday morning at 8 and was seated immediately - place was packed by the time we left. easy to get to and plenty of parking. Next time we're in Tucson, we will definitely stop in again!

We were in Tucson visiting family and went the the Rooster each day for breakfast. Great food, and a large variety of choices. Great service and DELICIOUS authentic fare. Reasonable prices, and a great atmosphere. When next in Tucson we will be back!!!

My husband and I are always on the search for a great weekend breakfast joint. I stumbled upon The Happy Rooster and was very excited to check it out. From the friendly welcome to the warmhearted goodbye, we had a delightful experience. The breakfast was very good: scrumptious bacon, yummy blueberry pancakes, and super home fries. Pass on the huevos rancheros, though. If you're looking for a great place to catch a lunchtime breakfaast - The Happy Rooster will make you happy. (The decor alone is worth the trip - try to sit in the Mine room of the Jail.)

On business, the Happy Rooster was recommended as a place to grab a good breakfast. This is absolutely not a chain. It's a little, non-assuming place tucked away off of a side road. The outside is painted bright red with all sorts of Western cartoons (horses, chickens, etc.).

The inside is like a little diner. Same colorful cartoons on the wall. Efficient staff - good food. I had an omelet. My business companion had some mexican sausage.

The place was doing a brisk business with what were obviously tons of locals. Pleasant atmosphere. Kids will like the colorful interior decorations.

The only bad thing was the men's bathroom. It was pretty darned dirty. Don't lift up the toilet seat!

I would recommend it for breakfast, and hope they clean up their bathrooms better.
