Proper Chicken and Waffles

I was introduced to Roscoe’s a few years back while on vacation in Long Beach. It was my first experience with the establishment and my first try at a proper Chicken and Waffle. I enjoyed myself then and wanted to share my experience with my wife. I made it a point to include a visit to Roscoe’s... read more

Well, I've been wanting to try this place forever and glad that I did. Don't know if its really on my list of revisits though. Parking is really on the other side of the street if you aren't familiar with the area. This is on a one way street, so you have to be informed or you will go around... More

I wanted a quick carryout meal to bring back to the hotel. The chicken and waffles were ready in 5"! Everything was piping hot and delicious.

We are from Michigan but we were vacationing on the West Coast in Long Beach for a Carnival Cruise and had to check out Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles! The service was good, there was no waiting to be seated and our food cane out pretty fast. The quality of the food was magnificent and quantity was equally impressive. I would... More

We love Roscoe's Chicken, and waffles too! Not only is the chicken outrageously delicious, but the fried chicken livers are one of my faves there. I always get the Carol C. Special and my husband alternates various dark meat dishes ranging from the waffles to grits to whatever special they are running. This particular time, last night in fact, we... More

This is not something I would usually like, but it was late and we were starving. Good chicken, waffles red beans, rice, corn bread. There is a bar connected but you get one check from there for the alcohol, and one for the food. They are constantly checking your ID - so they probably have a crowd of scam artists... More

My first time to Long Beach I had to go to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. The food was good. The chicken could use a little more seasoning. The waffles were great and the grits were smooth and creamy. The atmosphere was just like a down home country restaurant with some jazz portraits on the wall.

As this is a must for someone who visits California I had to go there. The fried chicken is really good and the waffles are so delicious. Only thing I didn't like was, that there is no possibility to get a part of the chicken with no bones in it - but beside this, very tasty
