I can verify that the Laurel Kenny Rogers Roasters is still in existance. I have eaten there a couple times recently and the food is still wonderfully great. I live close to the area, so the next time that I go past the restaurant, I will snap a pic and post it. I believe it is a franchise restaurant, and that is why it is still open. I do have some history with the restaurant chain, I did work for them in the late 90’s as a cook and server and then a manager. It is great to see there is such a following still out there for wood fire roasted chicken……its the wood that makes it good!
