We happened to be at the Galleria Mall a couple of weeks back and after exploring the entire mall, were starving. One weird problem in this mall is that you see printed signs about many restaurants, but the restaurants themselves are very difficult to find. After almost 15 minutes of searching for them, we found a few at the outer facade of the mall. Of these, Kenny Rogers Roasters looked the most inviting. Also, it had been a while that we had had any roasts, so we were looking forward to the meal.
The menu itself is beautifully designed and one good thing is that you get (almost) what you see. We started with ordering a Country Style Chicken Soup, split 1/2. The serving is large enough for one order to serve two. And you also get a slice of toasted garlic bread on the side.
The soup looked absolutely beautiful with a sprinkle of continental spices on the top. The taste was exquisite. The chicken pieces were not too big and were easy to eat, and the croutons were crunchy. The seasoning was just perfect. If you are headed to Kenny Rogers Roasters, this is must have.
For the mains we ordered a Kenny's a la carte Chicken meal with original sauce. We chose a Bean Salad, Mashed Potato with Gravy, and Aromatic Rice as the side dishes. The food was absolutely worth what the dinner cost us. The sauce was light and very tasty. Mashed potato with gravy could have done with some seasoning, but on the whole the sides were good. The chicken itself was very well roasted. The meal was light and we felt just full.
We finished our meal with Kenny's Home-Made Muffins that had come with the meal that we had ordered, but the staff had thoughtfully delayed serving it till the end of the meal, because otherwise it would have grown cold. We chose the Golden Vanilla flavour and it, too, was soft and light. On the whole, the meal was very delightful. We won't mind going to this restaurant again.
One note about the decor and service too. The place is about country food and the decor reflects that. It is spacious and artsy. The staff is pleasant and welcoming. They are patient and helpful. All this definitely adds to your dining experience with a restaurant. If you plan to be around Galleria Mall, Kenny Rogers Roasters is a must-try if you like a roast meal.
