New Day for Blue Rooster

After spending 10 years in Lilburn, the Gwinnett favorite has re-opened its doors in downtown Lawrenceville, Ga.

Although it was cold and rainy outside, the energy inside the Blue Rooster was warm and sunny. Co-owners and sisters-in-law Kyle and Donna Caves excitedly talk to customers and dignitaries who braved the weather to welcome the eatery to the Lawrenceville’s square.

Many Gwinnettians may already be familiar with the Blue Rooster. For ten years, locals flocked to the restaurant in Old Town Lilburn to dine on chicken salad, fried chicken or pick up one of their popular box lunches. That location shut its doors at the end of 2010. 

Their new space in downtown Lawrenceville is smaller and so is the menu. “That was more of a restaurant [in Lilburn], we’re more of a restaurant and eatery,” said co-owner Kyle Caves. “It’s a smaller menu but still very charming.”

The scaled down menu focuses mainly on baked goods like a variety of cakes, cookies and pastries. However the new Blue Rooster still serves many favorites including their famous chicken salad.

"The Blue Rooster compliments the modern, yet historic, appeal of Lawrenceville’s Square," said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson. "They are a great addition to our downtown business district and we are excited to have them in our community."

The Blue Rooster is located at 169 West Pike Street, behind the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. They are open Monday through Thursday 8am until 6pm and Friday and Saturdays until 8pm. The restaurant is closed Sundays.
