Rooster with a cigar.

Cigar Smoking Rooster

A large colorful rooster smokes a cigar. The rooster stands in front of Roosters Restaurant. It's a fitting oddity on Historical Route 66.

[Patsy Lewis, 03/22/2021]

These type of metal roosters are commonplace, so we often don't map them -- and we'd retired this guy after his legs broke off ~2016. But the plucky fowl has returned, nicely augmented with sombrero and cigar, as an enduring mascot for the Roosters cantina/restaurant.
