Perfect fried chicken, tasty waffles, good coffee, and syrup. Add friendly, attentive service, kitschy decor and you have a must stop if you are in the area.

My family has been talking about going to Roscoe's for years now. I never seemed to have the time on our vacations to get there! After a visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific we treated ourselves. My niece told us what drinks to order, the Eclipse. I don't know how they do it but you get three separated drinks... More

Went here when working in the area. My associates are frequent customers and the staff here was great. The food was even better! Will be here again next time.

For years, I've thought about chicken and waffles for breakfast. Now, I'm a committed fried chicken lover but not-so-much on the waffle side. In fact, the last waffle I ate was at a Courtyard breakfast buffet almost two decades ago! So in a moment of weakness (and intense hunger, too), I headed across the bridges to the Roscoe's in Long...

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
