Roy Rogers (Rockville) Food Review II

Texas Pete Spicy Chicken Sandwich & Holster Fries

Yesterday's late lunch at Roy Rogers was this close to perfect, save for an irksome issue with Roy's free Wi-Fi, which requires a third-party sign-up and verification that didn't come until after I left the restaurant. Tech glitches aside, Roy's retains its lofty status as our choice for Best Fast Food, an honor it's held for over four years running, based on delicious burgers/sandwiches, top notch sides and an easy-going style that says, "Sit down and stay awhile."
