Wow, these guys have really picked up their game. We ended up getting food here,  even after having a number of bad experiences in the past. The food was possibly the best Red Rooster I've ever eaten. My whole family agreed it was delicious and we ate every bit. Great job guys, 100% improvement and we are definitely satisfied customers.... More

The expresso coffee was surprisingly good. And I was able to get a freshly made sandwich for breakfast at a reasonable price. In fact this establishment is one of the better things in Tennant Creek.

We went to Red Rooster because we wanted a quick bite. The place smelled like a toilet, so we decided to take our food out. We simply threw it away. The fries were undercooked, the burger just tasted bad and the garlic bread was even worse. This was our first time at Red Rooster, and will also be our last.

Dropped into the roadhouse and surprised to see a red rooster. A clean toilet stop. The floor is quite unique as it is the local newspaper covered in some type of floor varnish. The food - well it's red rooster, so expectations are always low to start with. What wasn't expected was the very very slow service and the staff... More

Food was hot and fresh but the customer service was lacking. The guy at front counter had no custimer service skills and it was evident didnt want to be there.

Red Rooster is easy to access with the drive through. Quick and easy meal when you don't feel like cooking

Worst Red Rooster I have ever experienced. We have had it many times in Tennant and its so unpredictable whether you get a good or bad meal. They never seem to have what you want and are out of stock. My Husband loves Red Rooster and even he admits this is not worth it. Rancid potato and gravy, soggy chicken... More

This Red Rooster is located in a Roadhouse, on the highway in Tennant Creek. Definitely the worst I've ever had, cold burger and chicken roll, chips ok. It lacked the look of a well cleaned Red Rooster, I won't be back.
