If you’re like many DC locals, you’ve probably heard of the Roaming Rooster. Chances are, you’ve stopped by one of their food trucks, scattered across the area, in hopes of trying their buttermilk fried chicken sandwich, or another flavorful variation of this classic Southern-style dish. It’s quite possible, though, that even a fan of the Roaming Rooster food trucks could miss the business’s recent big news—the opening of their new Tenleytown restaurant. Here, you’ll find the sandwiches you know and love, alongside some new soon-to-be favorites, all with the convenience of a stationary storefront.
“Excellent. New location is firing on all cylinders right off the bat,” writes Yelp reviewer Stew S. or Tenleytown’s newest eatery. “Addictively delicious,” adds Shan S., another satisfied customer. “I’ll be back for more. Again. And. Again.” Still another reviewer, Erica L., adds, “I’m not really a chicken sandwich eater but the mild buttermilk chicken sandwich is addicting!!”
All-in-all, customers agree that the Roaming Rooster stands out as offering the best fried chicken and chicken sandwiches in DC. And now, thanks to their Tenleytown restaurant, you can take advantage of that delicious menu anytime, without the need to follow a food truck.
