If you’re a lover of fried chicken, you have to try Roaming Rooster’s new Tenleytown location—it puts KFC to shame. This locally owned and family-operated fried chicken spot serves up free-range, grain-fed chicken without hormones or antibiotics. You can tell the difference in the flavor.
The menu boasts both sandwiches and salads with chicken fried to perfection. Most of them offer a little kick, where you can choose mild heat or hot fiery for extra spice. Favorites are the buffalo fried chicken sandwich with blue cheese and the Nashville hot chicken. If you prefer sweet, try the honey butter fried chicken! They also serve up wings and tenders if you want just the chicken. Grab a side of coleslaw with jalapenos and you’ll be extra satisfied.
Their ultimate goal at Roaming Rooster is to make their diners happy. And they accomplish that with every perfect bite. Give it a try!
