Crazy high price is why I give this place an average score. The cornbread is out of this world, Dont blow all your money on the average BBQ. Get the cornbread its the real deal

It's a quaint little 'hole in the wall' BBQ joint. There are only a few tables in here and there's always someone in for a taste of good BBQ. I like the brisket and of course the sweet tea, but everything looks and smells great. The staff are pleasant and it all makes for a nice experience.

Very good and friendly service. Brisket sandwich was not bad, a little dry. Not crowded for lunch time. Worth stopping a 2nd time.

New to the area, my family and I were trying different restaurants and found this lil' place. I'm picky about my BBQ and Rooster's exceeded all my expectations...AWESOME! We bought the works so we tried EVERYTHING. The ribs fell off the bone, pulled pork was moist, the brisket had flavor, great bbq sauce taste and the sides...so good! And OMG...the... More

Went in for some ribs. They were very overcooked. Ribs are supposed to have some"chew" not cooked until they fall off the bone. They were dried out as well and covered in too much sauce. At $18 for a half rack I won't be back.

The food was good enough. The prices were about what you get in Williston. They do try to make you happy but I just don't think they have the knowledge of how to run a restaurant. You don't serve Coke from a can and expect stellar reviews. The BBQ was good but this place could do itself better by closing... More

Had beef brisket and it was mostly fat . I told waitress and she said that's how it is. I didn't order beef brisket fat , I ordered beef. I will not eat there again. Also pricey for what you get.

The actual location is pretty small, only a few tables. The atmosphere is nice. I usually order to-go and I've never been disappointed. I always order the pulled pork sandwich, but I can't say enough about the cornbread. It's a very welcome change for Williston to offer good food AND good service.
