Want to win a $20 Gift Certificate for your own Food Adventure to Fricker’s or Rooster’s? Today these perennial sports bar favorites go beak to beak, feather to feather, cluck to cluck. Which one do you like better?
You can’t deny local wing kings Fricker’s and Rooster’s have been enjoying success in the Miami Valley for decades. Rumor has it that the Fricker brothers had a falling out. As a result, one of the brothers went off on his own and opened Rooster’s restaurant as a result. The family feud was Dayton’s gain.
So Food Adventure fans – we want to hear from you.. which of these saucy sports dives is your favorite? Whether you like boneless or bone-in, whether you like breaded or grilled chicken, comment below and let your voice be heard. Why? Because 2 people will be picked at random to win a $20 gift certificate to Frickers and Roosters respectively! Oh and we wanna see which place has a more loyal following…
The Food Adventures Crew sound off on their favorites:
Hungry Jax’s Take: Rooster’s has a bigger salad selection, which is important to me. I also like the fact that they have more pizza offerings and more sub options. My vote is for: ROOSTERS”
The Big Ragu’s Take: ” To me it is all about the traditional wings and the sauces. In my opinion Fricker’s runs away with it on those categories alone. They have better burgers and better boneless wings as well. My vote goes to: FRICKERS”
We know that both spots have their strengths like WINGS , BONELESS WINGS, and a great venue to watch sporting events, but lets recap our take on the differences between these two:
— Fricker’s offers Ribs. And guess what, they aren’t bad for a casual sports bar!
— Fricker’s special’s are superior. They have 40 cent boneless wing specials on Monday nights and 40 cent traditional wings on Tuesdays. Fricker’s offers a sirloin steak for only $5 on Wednesday nights and $5 chicken chunks on Thursdays. Also kids eat free everyday. Saving money is good.
— The Brew City Fries, onion straws and fried zucchini are 3 decent appetizers only found at Fricker’s
— Cheaper beer prices at Fricker’s. They feature the $2.42 large domestic drafts. Nothing like a cold one and big screen football.
— The burgers at Fricker’s are bigger. Quite frankly we think they are better as well.
— Rooster’s has “Dumpster Fries” which we think is the best appetizer found on either menu. Try them for a taste of awesome indulgence.
— Rooster’s has a better selection of Sandwiches. More choices, more options, especially for those counting calories.
— The salad offerings at Rooster’s are more complete. For those trying to eat healthy, you will have more options at Rooster’s.
— Rooster’s pizza’s are better. Again, more options for toppings, etc. If you haven’t eaten their pizza, you will be pleasantly surprised.
— Rooster’s gets the edge in soups. Something you may not know is that both places have some incredible chili and pretty good New England Clam Chowder. We have been eating those as a start to a Food Adventure for years.
