Twisted Rooster’s meals prove to be “Committed to the Mitt”

Twisted Roosters meals prove to be Committed to the Mitt

You may have seen it, or heard about it at the very least, but in my opinion, the Twisted Rooster is the best of the best when it comes to decadent lunch dining to catch up with friends and family. Located on East Beltline, Twisted Rooster provides a welcoming, friendly staff, and food from local businesses in Michigan, proving their “commit to the Mitt.”

When my mom and I first entered the restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised by the energetic yet classy atmosphere. After little to no wait for a table, we were taken to our seats, which were located near a window.

Our waitress was very kind and generous as she poured water into our glasses. Not ready to order, we asked for a few more minutes to look at our menu, which ranged from beef sandwiches to salads, with anything in between.

After reviewing and pondering over the menu, we were ready to order. I asked for a Caesar salad and my mom ordered the fish tacos, which is an item the Twister Rooster is famous for.

Our waiting time gave me an opportunity to look around and take in the atmosphere of Twisted Rooster. For only being a local restaurant, the Twisted Rooster is quite large. The lights are set dimly to give the restaurant an arousing mood. The color choices of the walls and tiles are warm, such as shades of browns, reds, oranges, and black. In my opinion, these colors give the Twisted Rooster a homey and comforting feeling. From the speakers, acoustic-pop music played, giving the restaurant a modern taste. The waiters and waitresses wear uniforms in black and white, creating an unvarying look. After about twenty minutes, our food was served.

 My salad was the best I have ever tasted. I was incredibly happy and pleased with its creamy dressing and crisp romaine lettuce. The croutons were freshly made by the kitchen staff and lightly covered in oil, adding a signature taste and style to my meal.

Not being a seafood fan, I was not terribly interested in trying my mom’s fish tacos, although they did look tasty. Since the portion size was very generous, she did take some of them home for later. The fish tacos were filled with white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and of course, battered fish all bathed in a creamy cilantro sour cream sauce. A sweet, crispy noodle slaw along with tortilla chips accompanied the entree.

After a satisfying and tummy-filling lunch, the waitress brought our check.  It was a little on the pricey side but not terribly.

Overall, I would highly recommend going to the Twisted Rooster. Being very popular in the Knapp’s Corner area, it can be crowded around noon and dinner hours, especially on the weekend; however, that should not stop anyone from going to the restaurant to enjoy a locally made meal.

If you happen to be on the East Beltline with some friends and are looking for a scrumptious and lovely meal, the Twisted Rooster will not disappoint.
