I've visited Roosters a few times in the past and this time I decided to put a small taste test together.
You see, Roosters wings are "lightly breaded." I know....tragic, right??? Or, maybe not.
But you can also order them without the breading! I ordered five wings with breading and five wings without. One I chose Medium buffalo and one with Hot Buffalo.
I must say....I was impressed with BOTH versions. The wings in both orders are very very large! The flappers remain unsplit, meaning the wingtip is still attached. These wings are so large that even the wingtips offered up enough crispy skin and meat to warrant a few nibbles. I feel like the breading is perhaps a cornflake crunch or maybe a Panko style(?) It does add a very slight taste along with the texture.
The wings themselves, as I said, were very big. But also very high quality. No yucky gristle. Fried perfectly. And the meats pulls easily and cleanly from the bone. Cant ask for more.
|Unbreaded - Hot|
|Breaded - Medium|
I cant wait to go back and try some other sauce/breading combos.
I have to say of all the "chains" I've visited that inherently specialize in wings (Buffalo Wild Wings, Quaker Steak and Lube, etc) ...Rooter's is perhaps the best represented.
