    This place is delicious. Real southern style fried chicken. Lives up to the hype. Worth the wait. Staff is friendly and BYOB encouraged.

    In the breakfast sandwich world the Chicken Biscuit from The Roost is one of the top contenders. It consists of classic spicy fried chicken and cheddar, sandwiched between buttery biscuits. Read more

    Spicy chicken sandwich meal on a biscuit with all the fixins incl cheese, Mac n cheese, peach cobbler and chips. Crumble some chips on your Mac n cheese. PERFECT meal!

    Most people opt for the half bird, four pieces of fried chicken served with two sides such as cucumber coleslaw, mac 'n' cheese or bread pudding. The spicy chicken biscuits is another top pick. Read more

    Came here on a Thursday night, wait was about 30mins but I think very well worth the wait. I had spicy fried chicken with biscuit and coleslaw. They nailed their expertise for sure.

    Highly recommend the spicy chicken biscuit! Both the chicken & the biscuit are perfect. Sides are so-so. Slaw is ok; Mac n cheese disappointing. However, I didn't care b/c the sandwich was spectacular

    My favorite order is the spicy chicken biscuit sandwich with just pickles. The Nashville Hot is also excellent if you want more heat.

    The chicken is on point. The half and half teas is fantastic. And they have this in the bathroom.

    Spicy chicken is fantastic. Great biscuits, slaw and cobbler too. They fry to order so call ahead if you don't want to wait.

    Great chicken & biscuits. Good for breakfast or lunch. Nothing tops their 'Nashville Hot". I have been twice already this week.

    Chicken biscuits, slaw, and Cheerwine by folk from North Carolina. Other kitchen hopefuls ought to know by now. The biscuit sandwich here is BOSS.

    Biscuits are amazing. Skip the bread pudding. Bring a jacket in winter - the restaurant is small and gets cold with people going in and out.

    The spicy sandwich is out of this world, either on a roll or biscuit. Support your local food entrepreneurs.

    Stellar fried chicken 🍗. The Nashville Hot is a balanced, we'll thought out, slow-burn. Thought that the sides were nothing special but, oh, that chicken...

    Do not try to be lady-like and cut your chicken biscuit sandwich in half... It'll just fall apart. Instead, embrace the messiness! Oh, and add coleslaw.
