Durango's Prime Place To Hang -Generous Portions at Affordable Prices


About Our Restaurant & Team

Brought to you by Chris & Michele Redding, the owners of Cuckoo's Chicken House & Waterin' Hole and The Animas City Theatre, The Roost opened June 12, 2018, offering casual dining in a fun, downtown location. The Roost offers a wide variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, tacos, chicken & burgers.  You can enjoy delicious Prime Rib, served Thursday through Saturday, or mouthwatering St. Louis pork ribs, served Tuesdays & Wednesdays.  Pair your meal with a glass of wine, craft beer or signature cocktail.

Key Staff

Hailey Redding, Chris & Michele's daughter, is The Roost's kitchen manger.  She chose to delay going to college to be a part of opening and operating The Roost.  She was only 1 month old when Cuckoo's opened, and many long time customers have watched her grow up in the restaurant.  Hailey continues to develop the menu, offering great daily specials.


Bar Manager, Luke Mulligan, a Durango Native, brings his varied restaurant experience to our front of the house staff.  Developing our wine and cocktail offerings, he is happy to concoct a beverage you'll  be sure to love.
