A must visit in LB! Not exactly healthy, but dee-lic-ious. Chicken crispy and tender. Wonderful waffles and great cornbread. Roscoe's is an institution that everyone should visit at least once.

Overall I was pretty dissatisfied with my meal at Roscoe's. I had been recommended this place by a colleague, and it didn't deliver. The food was not good enough! I had chicken and waffles with a side of mac & cheese, that the waitress had recommended. The first piece of chicken was good, crispy on the outside and cooked well.... More

If you like waffles, these are great. If you don't like waffles, you will like waffles after trying these. This time the chicken was a bit overcooked for all at our table. The spices were still good, but when the chicken is cooked out of the chicken, that doesn't make up for it. This is my second trip to this... More

My most recent dining experience here at this roscoes chicken and waffles was less than overwhelming good. I was quite disappointed as I have eaten at roscoes plenty of times but not at this particular location. I couldn't believe how dry the chicken was and how the seasoning seemed to be just a bit off! The only thing good was... More

On the way to board a cruise and needed a meal. Our server was friendly and our food came out piping hot and very quickly. The Obama special was delicious and I will definitely have again....your mac and cheese is to die for!

Nice jazz lounge. Great vocalist and band. Nice evening out. My cousin had dinner and she said it was superb and highly recommend it. The place is small and everyone is warm and friendly. The down side is the neighborhood.

The idea of chicken together with waffles sounded somewhat strange to me but I go there quite often for the chicken, bisquits, and sweet potato pie. The manager, genene?? is always more than pleasant and the offerings are quite good. Their menu is extensive and is worth a try

This place is popular because of one reason; it's good. If you haven't had the experience then you must try it. Every friend and family member I've introduced to Roscoe's loved it. Ocassionally, but rarely, the chicken might be overcooked. If it is, send it back and they will make sure your next piece isn't. My success rate at this... More
