Oh My Gosh! Delicious

The food here was absolutely out of this world delicious! We didn't select the most healthiest of options, getting the southern fried chicken smothered in gravy with their very very large waffles (me) and the fried chicken omelette (wife), but so damn good!

I think I will eat here every time we travel back to LA.

I travel a lot for my work and this is far the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. Thanks for all of those tour guides that recommended this place to my wife and I.

This place was beyond wonderful. The succulent chicken thigh was prepared with no pull or red to the bone and it was extremely hot. The waffle was a beautiful waffle that wasn't like the stupid motel waffles that you're forced to eat nowadays. Service was excellent and will definitely return when we go back to Cali.

So far, I haven't been dissapoiinted. Whenever I'm in LA, this is a must do for me. Even though we have Chicken and Waffle Restaurants in Chicago now, I always gravitate toward Roscoe's as the original. It used to be readonably priced, but, it's gotten pretty pricey. But, the food is still really tasty and worth the trip and money.

Our first visit and we really enjoyed the chicken! The restaurant itself is not much to look at but it is clean and the bathroom is clean. That's always a plus. The kitchen can be viewed with a sneak peak when standing up front and it looked quite busy and clean from my view. They were quite busy during week... More

Fast forward a year and some change later, and we decided that wasn't gonna happen again! Again, flew in to LAX, got the rental, and set the GPS for... More

Roscoe's is a really fun experience when you have Kids or out-of-town visitors and want to give them a unique, local flavor. Service is really good and you must try the specialty, waffles and chicken. It can be really busy, depending upon the time of day but if you have to wait 15 to 20 minutes, it's worth it.

I hadn't been to LA in several years but I knew Roscoe's would be my first stop. My teenagers had never experienced Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles so I had to take them there. Yes, it's an experience! It was better than I remembered. Waffles were good but the chicken was excellent - hot and crisp - nothing overdone!!! I like... More

In addition to serving the proverbial chicken and waffles, other soul food items are available. The restaurant was crowded but the hostess was very efficient and organized so the wait was not long. The waffles were thin so I thought I would not like them, but the waffle mix resulted in a waffle with a really good, unique flavor. The... More
