Bub had an outstanding day the last game of the season. He scored two touchdowns and made a tackle that kept the opposing team from scoring! Bub loves chicken, so we headed off to Roosters near the Dayton Mall. The atmosphere was highly charged, the room filled with rowdy football fans watching college football, a perfect place to celebrate Bub’s victory.
Bub had an outstanding day the last game of the season. He scored two touchdowns and made a tackle that kept the opposing team from scoring! What an exciting game. Bub’s team calls him the "bowling ball” because he’s so effective at carrying the ball and "bowling” down defenders. As you can imagine, he worked up quite an appetite.
Like his brother, Bub loves chicken, so we headed off to Roosters near the Dayton Mall. When we walked in, I wasn’t sure we’d even get a table. The atmosphere was highly charged, the room filled with rowdy football fans watching college football, a perfect place to celebrate Bub’s victory. Thankfully, the hostess swiftly found a table for us and ushered us to our seats.
We quickly glanced over the menu and placed an order for mozzarella sticks as an appetizer. Bub ordered 5 chicken wings, all drums, in hot sauce with curly fries and I opted for the nachos deluxe with grilled chicken. We were surprised at how fast the food arrived. Judging by the number of people in the restaurant, we expected a bit of a wait.
The mozzarella sticks arrived first. Deep fried cheese can be tricky to eat, but thankfully we both managed not to get burnt. We appreciated that the accompanying marinara sauce had been heated (a lot of restaurants serve the marinara cold). As if on cue, our server delivered lunch and refilled drinks.
The appetizer evidently did its job, Bub managed to take a bite out of one of the chicken drums before I could snap the picture. He reports that the wings and fries are very good and given the opportunity to start over, he’d order the same thing again. I have to tell you, the nachos deluxe offer enough for 3 or 4 people on that platter, so while they were tasty, no "clean plate blue ribbon” for Aunt Lisa this day.
Roosters opened their first location on North Main Street in Dayton in 1988. They currently have 5 restaurants in the Dayton area and expect to open a Springfield location soon.
Thumbs Up Roosters - from Bub and me!
