The Happy Rooster does a nice job of creating the feeling of Americana with it's unique decor. You're definitely not in a chain restaurant. The service is prompt and friendly and the portions generous without being ridiculous. All of the food I have had there has been served quickly and has been tasty and hot. If you want a nice family friendly diner and aren't interested in Denny's or IHOP then this is the place for you. Often it's packed, and that's the best sign ever of a good place that the locals like.
