So, Broosters is a very casual eatery. You order at a counter, and they bring your order to your table when it's ready. They primarily serve chicken, burgers and steak, along with sides. For a casual food place, we find their food to be a step above in taste, so we try to visit when we find ourselves in Lombard.... More

Do not go to Broosters unless you like casual dining. Like McDonalds, you order at a counter. But from there changes occur. The food is prepared for you, and brought to your table. They specialize in burgers, chicken, and steak. And they do a really good job. We keep returning, even though there are many eateries in the area. Oh,... More

The chicken here is very good, reasonable priced. On Saturday and Sunday they offer an all you can eat chicken dinner for 14.95. The place is in a strip mall, and the inside decor is not much but don't let that fool you. The food is great.

A very good local bbq place. Their grilled chicken is good as are their sides. The lunch is quick and all the prices are reasonable. The staff is very friendly.

The food was good, I had an excellent chicken Caesar salad. My hubby liked the ribs and his chicken. The kids were happy, it was less expensive than full service, but the atmosphere is nicer than counter service. We'll go back most likely but it won't be one of our regular joints.

This is a great local place with citrus marinated chicken grilled on a open flame. I hadn't been in a while and was happy to see they were in the midst of a make over (new counters, fresh paint, etc) and the menu has grown to include BBQ and stakes!

Very clean, nice staff, but so-so, very small half chicken..sides were okay but expected more from prior reviews. Pollo Loco so much better..they did have steak and ribs but we only ate chicken.

Normally I come to Broosters Restaurant a couple of times a month because of their steaks. All the meat is grilled over a fire which adds a nice flavor to the meat. Not very many restaurant grill their meat over a flame

Cole slaw, mashed potatoes, green beans, Texas toast to die for! Also had the house salad with parm dressing very good! Everything is homemade you... More
