General Info
In 1936 Beverly and Rubye Osborne were driving west from Oklahoma to California. They had no reason to be joyful. They were middle aged and the Depression had wiped out their savings. On this particular afternoon it seemed that everyone in the state was attempting to escape the famine of the Oklahoma dust bowl. With not much more than their meager belongings and a basket of fried chicken, Beverly Osborne coaxed his Ford pickup across the barren prairie. Suddenly, a bump in the rutted road scattered the chicken and basket. Picking it up, Rubye complained "this is really Chicken in the Rough®." With that chance remark, a fortune was born. Beverly turned his truck around and headed back home. A man who, on instinct, had made a modest fortune and lost it - Beverly reasoned that "fingers were made before forks" and that chicken could be a cheap source of food at a time when incomes were sparse. Beverly learned from his previous business experience and failures that every business must provide customer satisfaction by identifying customers' needs and how to satisfy those needs better than anyone else. Soon, with the money he had received from the sale of his wife's wedding ring, he had an operation serving fried chicken with shoestring potatoes, hot biscuits and honey. That was the delectable meal that started "Fast Food - Fried Chicken Franchising" - long before McDonald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The Real Deal!

First went here back in 1956 when I was growing up in Port. Huron. This place isn't retro .... it just hasn't changed since the 50's.

Whenever I return to Port Huron for a visit, I stop in here for a good meal, and to relive good memories of my childhood days.

Classic Chicken in the Rough (fried chicken)

This is a retro 50's place if I have ever seen one, except it is authentic. It is more a restaurant than a bar, and is very family oriented. You come here for 1 thing, Chicken in the Rough. This is a patented way of cooking chicken and it has been around a long time. It is served as a small 1/2 chicken with shoestring fries. It is a little greasy, but it's fried chicken!

Awesome stuff

Chicken in the Rough is the best food in town. If you're looking for something light - skip it! It is stick to your ribs yummy! The shoestring fries are the greasiest and the pickerel fingers...delightful!!
