Read great reviews about this place and since it was down the street from our best western hotel it was great!! It's more a drop in dive bar vs a "restaurant" so I wouldn't recommend small children. The only burger they make is made to order and fresh! No real "veggies" just grilled onions and green chile with condiments. We... More

I went here with some friends after work because they had been there before and would not shut up about how great the burgers are. I didn't get to try them but I still had a great night. Convenient location if you have to take the sprinter home. Fun people that work there and are regulars. Calming fire pit in... More

Simply put, best burger in north county. Dive bar atmosphere. Fire pit out back. 2 pool tables. Staff and customers are "characters"

its a great diving bar with pool and darts. the burgers are excellent, honest, pure, tasty. They don't come with salad and tomatoes but with grilled onions. You can pimp them with relish, jalpenos, pickles, mustard, ketchup. Both buns and patties are grilled. The result is a pure honest burger, as good as it can get.

We visit the Rooster regularly to enjoy it's extraordinary burgers and rib-eye steaks. The selection of beer and wine is inexpensive and good. They have sports screens and a back of the bar barbeque. Very friendly.

The hamburgers here are made fresh and with lots of love. They are grilled to your liking and the condiments are all served on the side for you to put on yourself. There are no tomatoes or lettuce though but the burgers are so huge there wouldn't be room for them anyways!

I have lived in oside for over 15 years and finally stopped here after play golf on goats hill. It was a pleasant surprise the burgers were great as well as the onion rings. They also have a pool table and a ping pong table. A true dive bar with a good selection of beers and a great burger.

After having driven past the Red Rooster numerous times over the past three years, we finally decided to stop and check it out. The biggest challenge was finding a place to park - the lot is pretty tiny and not that easy to get in and out of! We managed to squeeze into a parking place and made our way... More
