Red Rooster Restaurant

4330 State Highway 66, Longmont, CO - (970) 535-0889
Posted By Benjamin Harper on 8/12/2005 1:09:00 PM
Just off I-25 and Colorado Highway 66 is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch, serving great food by a personable staff. The Red Rooster in Longmont, Colorado, open about eight years, is rapidly becoming a local landmark, and a great place for quality food at reasonable prices.

This small-town restaurant features some of the best breakfast items in the region. Farm-fresh eggs are cooked to order, served with some of the best hash browns I've ever eaten, fluffy and moist, with little trace of grease. Their chicken-fried steak is memorable, crisp yet tender, with real beef flavor. Omelettes are prepared to perfection, and the pancakes are flavorful and filling.

Lunch features homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, and many other treats. Try the fish and chips, the best this side of the Pacific Ocean.

Local clubs and groups often meet here on weekends so be prepared for a short wait. You will often see motorcyclists congregating for pre-ride meals, and a multi-line motorcycle dealership is only two blocks away.

Heavy on the meat and diced tomatoes, this is one of the more unusual huevos rancheros we have seen.

The most interesting items on the menu are the stackable platters.  The country-fried steak version comes with a lean slab of beef topped by a thick, creamy gravy.

A three-egg omelette filled with mushrooms, bacon, a cheese blend, and topped with tomatoes, sour cream, and avacodo. Served with hash browns, and choice of toast.

With a name like Red Rooster, it's no surprise the interior is decorated with chicken signs and knicknacks.

Red Rooster is located in an uninteresting building in a small industrial park.  The inside is much homier.
