The ever-developing Gull Road culinary scene gained a new addition, The Rooster’s Call, in July of this past summer. Serving primarily breakfast food from the building that once housed Pizza Hut and Jaspare’s, The Rooster’s Call is a charming restaurant with kind servers and excellent dishes.

The Rooster’s Call, while unassuming on the outside, is tastefully decorated on the inside. The restaurant’s dining area is filled with rows of square black tables, each capable of seating four customers. Each table was set with a centerpiece consisting of a vase of flowers and a variety of condiments grouped together in a rustic metal tub. Customers also had the option of sitting at a high bar-like counter in front of the kitchen doors.

Multiple windows on three of the four walls, decorated with red and white checkered curtains flooded the restaurant with natural light, making the room feel spacious even when every table was occupied. The restaurant’s primarily red walls were adorned with pictures of roosters and a large metal clock.

On the menu was a wide variety of classic breakfast options. Customers could order something savory, like one of the eight omelets offered on the menu or a plate of biscuits and gravy, or something sweet–waffles, pancakes, or french toast topped with fruit, chocolate or even ice cream. The menu also offered a few lunch options–sandwiches, soups, and salads.

I chose to order the poutine tater skillet, one of four tater skillet options, described on the menu as “Tater Tots Topped With Cheese, Bacon, Sausage Gravy, and Two Over Medium Eggs.”

The Rooster’s Call has found the breakfast Holy Grail in their tater skillets. When I read the menu’s description, I anxiously anticipated the delivery of my meal. And when I tasted it, I was surprised I had not seen a similar dish anywhere else. The skillet itself was not overly large, but paired with the two pancakes that came with, I had more than enough for breakfast and took some home to eat the next day.  Composed of many delicious layers, the skillet brought together everything I love about breakfast in one dish.

The restaurant’s staff was accommodating and friendly. Prices were reasonable, similar to prices at Liz’s. Guests were mostly older and casually dressed.

Complete with excellent food and homey decorations, The Rooster’s Call is perfect for a Sunday brunch or lunch with family.

This is my first year on staff at the Reflection. I enjoy running track and cross country. I also spend a lot of time volunteering at Gracespring and the Richland Community Library. After I graduate this year, I hope to go to college and pursue a career in public history.
