Rooster Shack Woking Good Food Awards ‘Best Takeaway’ 2020-21
Rooster Shack has a genuine pride and love for it’s fabulous flavours and deliciously simple menu combinations.
Surrey’s award-winning “gourmet fast food” brand Rooster Shack is unlike any piri piri fast food joint you’re likely to encounter.
After all, how many piri piri eateries do you know of that have won two consecutive Good Food Awards, 2020 and 2021, for best takeaway?
And the secret to their success isn’t just a diverse menu, with flame grilled chicken and beef burgers, wings and a huge variety of milkshakes available under one roof, but also an absolute commitment to the very best flavours.
In fact Rooster Shack’s three-fold ethos of Atmosphere, Pride, and Food, hints at why they’ve made such a huge impact on Woking’s locals in such a short time.
Their flagship branch on Maybury Hill boasts an impressive shop front fascia with a prominent brand logo, and a beautifully designed interior, all of which point to an eye for detail.
Their focus towards flavour is no better demonstrated than by their homemade sauces, which were originally developed by the current owner Imran’s father and founder of Rooster Shack, Asa Mamud.
With six spice levels to his secret recipe – Tikka, Mango & Lime, Lemon & Herb, Medium Hot, Hot, Lemon Hot, and Extra Hot – the authentic flavours behind their famous piri piri marinades involve a dozen different key ingredients being added to crushed birds eye chillies.
It is these carefully prepared sauces that are then used to marinade their chicken for a full 24 hours before being steamed and finally finished on the grill to impart their signature smoky edge.
In addition, Rooster Shack also serves Southern Fried chicken that’s battered in their very own original southern spice mix.
With 6oz of hand-pressed beef patties being standard (20oz for those with an appetite!), there’s also a selection of their Famous Burgers and Wraps that includes their signature The Shack.
For those looking for vegan and veggies options, this place has you covered with Shack’s Classic assortment of burgers, wraps and hot dogs, such as the Vegan Mountain Burger, as well as a Paneer Rice Box, among other things.
And to wash things down, don’t forget their huge variety of shakes, with a whopping 26 different flavour combos, all of which can be juiced up with the addition of their Protein mixture.
Rooster Shack has a second franchise branch in Aldershot, Hampshire, and will be adding to its growing resume with restaurants scheduled to open early next year in March and June.
With franchise opportunities available, Rooster Shack is clearly a tried and tested business model whose first store has already built up a loyal customer base of over 6000 customers since its launch in 2016 (more information can be gleaned from their website).
They also appear to have all bases covered with the recent release of a mobile app (available to download on App Store and Google Play); a loyalty card; a secure online ordering system via their website; and delivery through Just Eat, Deliveroo, and Uber Eats.
