Roy Rogers returning to Aspen Hill

The rapidly-expanding Roy Rogers chain is planning a return to yet another location where it had a storied history. Get your fry holsters at the ready - Roy Rogers is opening a restaurant in Aspen Hill.

Perhaps like me, you remember dining at the Roy Rogers in the Aspen Hill Shopping Center on Connecticut Avenue in decades past. That location - like many former Roy's - became a McDonald's eventually.

But now Roy's is coming back about a block away, in the Northgate Plaza Shopping Center at 13884 Georgia Avenue. Roy Rogers recently returned to Rockville, as well.

If you're wondering if the food is the same as you remember, here are my reviews of the 2015 Roy Rogers fried chicken, famous Double R Bar Burger, and the legendary Holster Fries.

    1. Debbie, I haven't heard an official date from Roy Rogers yet. However, I went by the shopping center in the last week, and it didn't appear that construction had begun yet. So it probably is a ways off still.

    3. Soon - stay tuned! They won't open without announcing first, as they usually have a giveaway for those first in line on opening day. I will post as soon as I hear.
