Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Rooster
The Great American Steak and Chicken House is built under a Giant Rooster. You enter the restaurant through doors under the towering poultry. It's definitely a must see and a great photo opportunity. And bring the kids -- there are full-size tractors over the salad bar. How'd they get those things in there?[TFink, 07/06/2013]

The patriotic mega-rooster: our shared national nightmare.
So we passed the Big Cock several times during our stay in Branson. We knew it was the biggest and we passed it maybe four or five times before we finally said, "Okay! I guess we HAVE to take a picture now. It might make for a mildly interesting story." There is a restaurant connected to the Big Bird that we did not have the pleasure of trying out, but if you like steak or chicken, I hear it is the place to go. Lots of southern fried food. You can pop in for a quick picture and stay for the food if you like, or continue about your business in Branson, as there are definitely more spots to see.[Alexandra, 05/28/2012]
According to the local Branson newspaper, the patriotic owners of the town's new Great American Steak and Chicken House had originally planned to build a rooster 35 feet tall. But they boosted their bird to 43 feet when they learned of a 37-footer in France.
This is an undeniably American fowl, with a star-spangled vest and bow tie, an American flag lapel pin, and a red, white, and blue replica farm behind him. You have to walk between his legs to enter the building.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 04/14/2011]
