Crest residents, the wait is over.
Roaming Rooster, the wildly popular fried chicken restaurant, opens its Skyland Town Center location on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022, 1pm.
And on Friday, Feb. 11, the drive-through Starbucks at Skyland (the first in DC!) will start serving at 5:30 am.
Not only is this the first Roaming Rooster to open east of the Anacostia River, it’s the first branch to launch a homemade custard milkshake program!
So come for the chicken and shakes, and also a DJ, merchandise and gift card giveaways and free food samples.
The Black-owned, Washington-based business started in 2015 as a food truck operating in the District; the family parlayed its loyal following into a brick-and-mortar operation in 2018, since then opening DC locations in Tenleytown, U Street, Western Market and Woodridge.
