The Starving Rooster
At The Starving Rooster we believe in quality ingredients, being true to who you are, standing by what you believe in and having respect for all people.
Our restaurant, originally built in 1919 for the Altman and Taylor Tractor Company was built on quality and a pride for the things you make. The “starving rooster” logo was used by the company as their brand “moniker.” As legend has it, the Altman Taylor Company made a threshing machine that was of the highest quality and didn’t leave a speck of grain behind. As a result, the roosters had nothing to eat. Well, we will make sure you don’t go hungry, but we do like the idea of taking pride in what we do and make. As a part of that philosophy, we also have great respect for the historical nature of the building and have repurposed nearly all of the materials that were taken out of the original structure and have used them to build tables, booths and other design elements seen throughout the restaurant. We also have a great respect for our farming culture and are very proud to say that our fathers/mothers or grandfathers/grandmothers spent most of their lives making a living off our great North Dakota land. It is out of respect for all of these things that we give you “The Starving Rooster,” a place as local as the land itself.
We hope you enjoy hanging out with “The Starving Rooster!” Chad and Angie, Chris and Sarah, Jeremy and Misty, Joel and Molly
