You won't find boxed or canned food in the Tin Rooster kitchen at Turning Stone's Exit 33. From the maple and apple wood used in the smokers, to food served on your plate,  everything is made fresh from local products.

Chef Joseph says he and his staff are all about local. 'We want to support the local economy. Whether it's a farmer a bakery or a company. We want to keep the money in Central New York.'

Having local products makes it easier to serve fresh food. '99% of what comes out of our kitchen, we make. We want fresh,' explains Chef Joseph.


From the cornbread to the baked beans.  Everything is made fresh.  Nothing comes out of a box and nothing is wasted.  The croutons are actually made from day old corn bread and oh are they good.

Chef Joseph wants customers to leave full and satisfied.  'The economy is tight. We want to give the guests as much food as possible for their budget.'

Don't just take my word for it. Hear what actually customers had to say about their dinner at Tin Rooster.  From the first time diner to the guy who's been almost a dozen times.  Where they full and satisfied?

Tin Rooster serves up fresh, southern BBQ Wednesday through Sunday and has live country music every weekend. See the full Tin Rooster Menu.
