Royal Rooster Pop-Up Chicken Sandwich Concept Opens Inside Old Major For Weekday Lunch Service
Brunson & Co., the people who brought you Old Major, Masterpiece Deli, and Culture Meat & Cheese, brought yet another concept to Denver dubbed the Royal Rooster. Opened December 1st, 2015 the Royal Rooster resides inside the bar at Old Major for weekday lunch service, Monday through Friday from 11am to 3pm.
Old Major has always wanted to be in the lunch game, but have notoriously been too busy with their butchery and charcuterie program to commit. Brunson shares that the Royal Rooster, literally named by the chefs in the kitchen, is a “casual, quick service set-up that will be simple, using the best ingredients we can get our hands on.”
Royal Rooster at the Old Major Bar features the infamous Old Major fried chicken thighs in a sandwich format. “It has become quite popular, so rolling it out in a sandwich was the next logical step,” says Brunson. There are several rooster sandwiches, salads, tacos and a double double burger available prepared with Red Bird Chicken, a local Colorado Company and Colorado Angus Beef. Sandwiches feature Martin's potato buns and sides that include peanut oil pork fat fried french fries, fried pickles and caesar salad.
