They use fresh, local, in-season produce. They might change their menu throughout the year but this chicken sandwich never goes out of season!

If the only thing a place serves is chicken, then they obviously know what they’re doing with it.

This chicken spot *pun intended* just opened this summer and they’ve already created a huge buzz. And yes, that is macaroni and cheese on the sandwich…

Did you look at the ingredients list for Popeye’s? Roaming Rooster only uses free-range, grain-fed chicken. And we’re pretty sure you can pronounce all the ingredients in the batter too.
