It's probably good to eat nothing but salads for awhile before you visit Roscoe's. This ain't health food. But it is so good. I ordered the half chicken and two waffles. Classic. The portion of chicken is huge. Some places you order half a chicken and you got room to spare. Not here. I had to bring some of it... More

Roscoes no matter which location I have tried is amazing. The chicken is always hot and delicious. The waffle is great as well even with the cinnamon taste. I love the food have went on multiple occasions in one day. Every time I'm in LA it is my first stop. A must try

Love the chicken and waffles...although I ate some of my husbands red beans and rice, which was also excellent. The service was excellent and will visit again.

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, my boyfriend and I were given friendly and genuine service that was completely different than what we had experienced somewhere else earlier that day. This was our second attempt to get into Roscoe's, as the first time we tried there was an hour+ line. We expected the same this... More

If you're a health freak, well get out of here! This place is definitely not for you! If you like fried chicken, waffles, butter and a possible health attack, this place is just right for you my friend. Don't you dare not ordering a side of mac and cheese because you'll be missing out on some of the best mac... More

When I visit LA I always make a stop here and I am always impressed. I have ate other version of chicken and waffles and still nothing compares. The chicken is always moist and tasty and with the waffle it is just over the top! My mouth is watering as I write! I look forward to visiting again soon!

First time to eat at roscoes and it did not disappoint. The fried chicken was as good as advertised. Left full and couldn't even finish our meals! Will def be back. Not to mention this is the location in Tupacs "to live and die in LA" video, made it that more real.

This was a great restaurant with ease getting in and out, getting seated, and friendly staff. I really enjoyed the waffles and I liked the flavor of the mac and cheese. The chicken was very nice, not the best in my opinion, but well worth the price and visit. All the food was high quality and delicious.

A little pricey, and the neighborhood can feel a little sketchy after dark. The food is good and there is plenty, but the price on the side dishes is quite high. Service was slow and we were in the secondary dining room, where customers didn't get nearly the service we could see taking place in the main dining room.
