I went years without trying Roscoe's. My friends thought I was crazy because of it. But one night we all decided to go and I have to say that it was AMAZING! When we got there, we were seated right away and given our menus. The only thing

I don't know if I have reviewed this one...but it says the doctor wouldn't approve of the cholesterol filled fried chicken and syrup drenched waffles. But contrary to my belief, my appetite didn't approve of it either. Just not a good mix

...we decided to actually go in instead of saying, "We should try it out one of these days!"

Yep yep, chicken and waffles and fruit punch! You get exactly what you ask for. Three stars for an enjoyable if completely predictable experience.

It's KFC plus! (But without the tasty biscuits.) Put some jelly on the waffles...it's good.

While in vaction in LA, we JUST HAD to visit many of the landmarks including Roscoe's. Not reading any reviews about this location, we had no idea what to expect. We went one night during the week at about 7pm. We lucked out and parked

Pros: food,

Cons: no parking, service (sometimes)

If your visiting L.A. you do need to eat here. If going during peak meal hours, plan on waiting a while out on the street as there is no room to wait inside. You'll want to order the chicken and waffles of course, just to say that you

If this is what you crave...nothing can beat it! My favorite is the chicken omelet....sounds crazy, but its delicious. And of course anything they do is with southern love and will leave you full, but wanting more. Great LA staple,

Down home food, makes you think you're in the south. Great chicken and the combination with the waffles and syrup, which without tasting it sounds REALLY odd is really quite good. Great service, friendly staff. I'd highly recommend this

This restaurant surprised me. I came with a friend, liking fried chicken, but not really eating it often. I loved the food. It was spectacular chicken and the waffles taste better than any I've ever had. I got the Carol C.'s I can't go

Pros: FOOD

Cons: Parking, and the wait

I've been here a few times but went again because my boyfriend had never gone. We ended up waiting about an hour and fifteen minutes (Sunday at 1PM)...which wasn't pleasant but is to be expected. The chicken is always delicious, moist

Roscoe's waffles are the best I've had. Add the fried chicken for a meal you can't beat. If you're in LA, Roscoe's is a must visit.

This place is amazing! I've never had fried chicken that tastes so good. The waffles are also incredible but the biggest surprise for me was the grits! I never expected to find home-style Southern cooking in Cali but I'm glad I did! Can't

Pros: fried chicken, waffles, chicken livers

Fried chicken breast smothered with some gravy and onions, accompanied by grits and a biscuit w/ a side of waffles. Need I say more? Normally I don't eat grits, but I added some butter and a little salt and pepper and it was a great pair for the chicken. The waffle and syrup just melted in your mouth. The restaurant itself definitely wasn't the greatest place to be, it was small and crowded, but the food is what would make me go back.

I know, I know - Chicken & waffles on a plate - together?? YES! This Hollywood eatery seats only about 50 people and any weekend will find a line outside the door - don't EVEN try to go after after 12 noon on a Sunday when the "after church" crowd arrives! Celebrities frequent this spot - including Magic Johnson & Jessica Simpson / Nick Lachey.

This is authentic soulfood - not overly done, inexpensive and with enough variety that on any visit you'll find MANY ethnicities enjoying the food. My favorite - and the dish I suggest for "newbies" - is the #13 - or the Anna C special - one lucious fried chicken breast with one specially seasoned waffle. For those of you who prefer dark meat, you can get that too. There are options for gravey or giblets. Order greens on the side or french fries. They have it all! If you are visiting the area - it's worth a visit to the spot that is even talked about in movies & TV shows! Drive by "Pinks" hot dogs and forget trying to get in to one of the "fashionable" eateries in the area. Anyone in the know - knows this is the spot!

I have been going here since the "DISCO DAYS".... Nothing like dancing all night and then going to Roscoe's and have some of their chicken and waffles. It is so good, the waffles just melt in your mouth...... The best time to eat thee is before lunch or dinner time... There is a wait otherwise.... I am going there this weekend as a matter of fact, my daughter has never been and she will love it..... You never know who you are going to bump into there, any number of actors or singers..... I have heard Jay Leno mention it on his show also...

PROS: Best combination of what you would never think of

Nobody does fried chicken like Roscoe's. The Gower location is always packed so sometimes we drive out to the Pasadena
one on Lake St. Their red beans and rice is great, as is their mac and cheese. Food worth every calorie!!

Legendary LA eatery. May sound like an unlikely combo- but definately delicious. Open until 4am on weekends but anticipate long lines. Place is small and popular - not uncommon to wait 1 hour + to be seated. Fast service, great atmosphere. Cheap.

Regardless of which Roscoe's branch you visit, they boast equally delicious fare. There are a few things you should be aware of about this location though: 1) The size of the restaurant is very small, so expect to wait in the line that forms outside. 2)They don't ever take reservations - It's first come first serve. 3) This is not a place for groups - they will probably split up a group of more than 5. The wait is well worth it though.

Roscoe's is more than just the sum of it's parts - namely chicken and waffles. It's all those side dishes, and the green (which I love) and the waiting. Waiting is defintely part of the Roscoe's experience. But if that bothers you just go

Editorial from

The name may sound offbeat, but we assure you that this down-home combination really works, with sweet cinnamon-flavored waffles complementing crispy, Southern-style fried chicken. The prices are a bargain, rendering the Colonel obsolete.…
