Waffle and Chicken - perfect together

I am usually not a huge fan of waffles but I could've eaten another one (if I hadn't been full), it was so good. The chicken was perfectly seasoned. We ordered the Obama which is 2 chicken wings (very meaty) and a large waffle. We also ordered the macaroni and cheese because it is a specialty. I... read more

Had heard about Roscoe's so had to give it a try. My teenage son thought it was awesome! We got there at 11 on a Friday and got one of the last tables. Be prepared to wait, but they will do whatever they need to do to get you in and get you fed! Unique flavor. We enjoyed our visit... More

My wife had the chicken and waffles. Really good! I had giblets and gravy. Was fantastic. We are from Chicago so we like a lot of service. Nobody was rude... they bring your food a leave you alone.

I was on a business trip with all guys...and this is where they chose to eat! I will say it was very good. Definitely not the high class meal I was looking forward to in the LA area-it is definitely a diner. The fried chicken was very good and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The waffles are thin-not... More

We weren't really sure what we were in for when we stepped in the doors here, but the service was terrific, everyone was friendly, and the fried chicken and waffles were so good, my 9 year old son asked for more! The waffles have a sort of cinnamon-ness to them but yummy and the chicken is moist and very good.... More

If you're in LA, looking for a low-key, fairly inexpensive, and delicious meal (and obviously enjoy the tasty combination that is chicken and waffles), this is your place! It's great fried chicken and delicious waffles. Lately I've run into a lot of folks quick to bash it and remark that [insert fried chicken spot here] has the best chicken, but... More

I took the Flyaway bus from the airport because the president was in town doing the Jimmy Kimmel Show and traffic was a nightmare. Little did I know, we were right around the corner from a Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles! I had never been to the Hollywood location. In honor of being stuck in the Obama traffic jam,...

Flew into LA to watch the Dodgers last home game and made a stop at Roscoe's. The food was amazing, the chicken and waffles are second to none and you must try the Sunrise to wash down the great food. We ended going twice in two days!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
