Reviewed January 6, 2012

Located in Clifton near the University of Cincinnati campus, the Proud Rooster has been cranking out meals for a long time. Their speciality is the fried chicken and it's pretty hard to pass up. This is the kind of place that is featured in the TV show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives". Not much in the way of decor - you'll feel like you stepped back in time. Finding a parking spot can be a problem but this is a great place for a sandwich or tasty chicken lunch. Prices are reasonable and the food selection is average for a small place like this. Service is good and at lunch the place is busy on most days. There are a number of other trendy and ethnic restaurants within the block but the Proud Rooster holds it's own dispite the competition which says a lot.
