don't know what the other reviewers are talking about. We found the food here to be fresh and totally delicious and very reasonably priced. We're thrilled to welcome Roost to the neighborhood (and thank you for delivering so fast!) The fried chicken is amazing!

i've tried to give this place the benefits of the doubt..... but.... Heads up to the person(s) that are frying the chicken.... change your cooking oil from time to time! How would like to pay for burnt chicken EVERY TIME you've patronize a food establisment? If i wanted burnt chicken i would have had my 2 year old dog fry me up some bird. Not only that but your meat is BLAND! NO FLAVOR! Whether i've placed and order for chicken pieces or tenders it's ALWAYS burnt and bland! I suggest you look into cooking classes. I want quality and well as quantity. The cooks remind me of drunken college grads deciding on a lark to cook food for profit. NEWS FLASH..... YOU CAN'T COOK! one more thing... how is it that you say your order will be ready in twenty minutes, yet when i arrive in 15 minutes... the order is finished, cold (to touch), burnt and bland! Go figure. i suggest you take heed to what people write. If you want true customers to continue to patronize your establishment, cook food that is pleasing to the eye as well as the tongue. Otherwise, I doubt if you'll last another year. Overall i will continue to support yoru establishment but if things haven't changed by the spring... throw in the towel:( And to the customers... really check out your order and say to yourself... who's cooking this. Why is the meat burnt and bland?

As a Southerner, I love this food. Crispy, greasy, just the way fried chicken should be. The sides are true to Southern cooking. Value not bad; no atmosphere, just take home or to the park.

If you know what a fried chicken dinner is supposed to taste like, then this is not the place for you! I could easily turn this into a 5oo word diatribe, I'm so disappointed with my experience here, but I'll do my best to keep it brief. In sum, organic costs more, I understand and approve, but if you charge $5.50 for two pieces of poultry, please make sure they're bigger than two tenders and not so burnt on the exterior that there's no lovely crisp to enjoy, just endure. Sugar in the greens is one thing, but they shouldn't be sweet! If you want a dessert vegetable on your menu, try sweet potatoes, leave the collards alone. The biscuit is straight from KFC (I guess you're banking on the hippie university clientele being wholly unfamiliar with the fast food experience - if so, at $1.50 a pop, great markup opportunity! Congrats! And last, the service. Friendly, but unforgiveably slow. Dropping two small pieces in a fryer takes 15 minutes, not 30! The dude at the counter was slower than a senior citizen, under the impression 6 customers in 20 minutes is a rush! It looked as though registering more than one concern at a time was more than he could bear. Not to fear, if this experience is the rule and not the exception, he won't ever have to discover what an actual busy evening looks like.

Seriously - who thought it was a good idea to have fried chicken go organic? Your a genius, and mighty fine cook too. Good luck guys - see you on my rounds.
