Roosters Grille and Pizzaria – Calhan

Roosters Grille and Pizzaria

After hiking at the Paint Mines Interpretive Space I was looking for a place to stop for lunch. I had never been anywhere near this area so I was looking for a sign of where I should I stop. Well a sign was waiting for me in the form of a giant roadside rooster! For those of you who follow along this blog you know how much a sign influences my decisions so you no doubt know why I ended up at Roosters Grille and Pizzaria!

Roosters turned out to be a really nice post hike meal and I am glad I listened to the giant sign!

The Food

Now for the important part…the Food! Roosters had a large menu of burgers, wraps, sandwiches, pizza’s, apps, and entrees. I was scared to order anything related to a fowl so I wouldn’t upset the giant sign out front and decided on a burger instead.

I went with “The Don”, which the server told me was one of the most popular items on the menu. The Don is a half pound patty topped with Applewood smoked bacon, sautéed onions and mushrooms. a mix of both cheddar and swiss cheeses and finished with Roosters signature garlic mayo.

This burger was pretty amazing. It seemed like it was stacked to the ceiling with generous portions of all of the toppings clinging to the top of the thick patty. I love mushrooms and these were top notch. The bacon was also cooked really well and added a nice smoky flavor to the rich meat. The burger was pretty amazing. Also, special shoutout to the garlic mayo which gave the whole thing a nice tangy kick. I really enjoyed the entire meal!
