Roaming Rooster Coming to Gaithersburg


Roaming Rooster DC Home

Roaming Rooster is coming to 511 Quince Orchard Rd in Gaithersburg. The restaurant will be located in space previously occupied by Duck Donuts in the Firstfield Shopping Center. Duck Donuts permanently closed in August. Roaming Rooster is known for its variety of buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches that vary in heat depending on the diner’s preferences – mild, medium or hot. In addition to its free-range, grain-fed, antibiotic-free and Halal chicken, Roaming Rooster offers an all week breakfast menu, salads and sides including wings, chicken tenders and hand-cut fries.

This will be the chain’s second Montgomery County location. Its Pike & Rose location at 11586 Old Georgetown Road in North Bethesda opened on June 21. No opening date for the new location has been announced. THE MOCO SHOW

I have not heard of this restaurant before but it sounds like something that I would try.  I anticipate a nice review after you and chef Dolores dine there.

Good morning, Roy... a new name for me, Roaming Rooster. Sounds like they have a winning formula.

Roy, we are seeing more chicken fast food places also, but haven't heard of this one.

Hi Roy- I just looked at the menu and it looks good! We don't have one here.

What a great name for that restaurant, Roy.  Old Fair Oaks Village, a community near my home, has a population of feral chickens that delight the village.  They need a restaurant with that name.

Sounds good!  We just got our first Chick Fil A and Raising Cane's, but I'm not a big fan of fast food.
