There’s never a bad time for chicken, especially when you work up an appetite in the famed Boat Avenue shopping complex. When you’re looking for something familiar but done in just the right way, that’s when you know you’ve come to the right place.
Located just across from the Boat Avenue lake, Kenny Roger’s Roasters stands as a beacon of hope for all chicken lovers! The restaurant can accommodate parties of all sizes comfortably, with an upscale, contemporary atmosphere that invites you to stay long after your meal is done. Comfortable seating is not a problem here with full leather couches and a litany of cosy seats that ensures a pleasant sit-down.
Kenny Roger’s Roasters has a sports bar meets contemporary restaurant vibe, but there’s something inviting about the wooden tables and chairs. As we walked in, the friendly staff made us feel welcome and showed us our seats just in view of some of the many televisions around the restaurant.
We started off with a few appetizers to whet our appetite, and they didn’t disappoint. The Jacket Potato and the Chicken Caesar Salad were the highlights in this department. A fluffy baked potato stuffed with delicious stuffing that included a medley of vegetables and their signature chicken, all mixed in a delectable sauce.
The chef had also been generous with the salad, topped with slices of the same juicy chicken. The appetizers were a great start to our dining experience here at Kenny Roger’s Roasters, and the salad certainly could be a main dish on its own!
Chicken is the star of the show here, so we ordered two of Kenny Roger’s signature roasted dishes. My partner ordered Kenny’s Chicken and Pasta Meal, which comes with a quarter roasted chicken, your choice of pasta, one side and a muffin - either vanilla or chocolate. My partner chose the coleslaw as a side, and the tomato pasta, both of which complemented the chicken very well. It was clear that this was some of the best roasted chicken on the island, with a tenderness that is unmatched, which made the chicken juicy all throughout.
I had the Kenny’s Quarter Meal, a classic dish that includes three sides and a muffin along with a choice of sauce. I had the mashed potatoes, aromatic rice and corn on the cob. This was a dream of a dish that, while simple, brought back memories of a traditionally hearty American meal. It’s a classic dish from the American south, with the corn becoming an incredible treat and complemented the chicken well. You can taste the herbs and spices used to cook the chicken, and I’m still dreaming about the flavour!
We also decided to share the burger, simply because Angus Beef Burgers are not too common in roasted chicken restaurants. This too was a revelation as the beef patty was cooked perfectly and included two sides - macaroni and cheese and potato salad. A hearty portion that is certainly enough to satisfy anyone!
This is the perfect place for parties and fussy eaters, as anyone can find their favourites on this menu. Given the price points, I believe we’ll be back for seconds and thirds!
