Red Rooster in Damascus, MD

A friend mentioned they have great fried chicken.

Can anyone here fill me in?

  1. I haven't been in a while, but it used to be great. And, I've never heard anything bad about it.

      Agree with Dennis.

      It's a small, mostly carryout type of place but they have a few tables outside, and one or two inside IIRC, but it's best to go when the weather is nice and you can sit outside.

    2. Went this past Monday. The chicken was very good; worth the trip.

      Is anything else there worth ordering?

        The breakfast food, burgers and steak & cheese are all very good. It is hard to get past the fried chicken though. They add their own cherry syrup to Coke or your soda of choice that has a real soda-shop taste.

        Around the corner is Jimmie Cone which is where you should head for dessert. Best soft-serve I have had that was not walking distance from the ocean.
