I've only been here 2 times. Once was 14 years ago and the 2nd time was just a week ago. They have expanded big time and the wait time went from 2 hours down to 30 minutes. We had a family of 6. I love their chicken and their waffles. So delicious. I think they actually got better, if that... More

Good chicken and the crust was crispy but the flavor was just not there for me. I was hoping that they would have brined the chicken or at least marinated it before frying it. It wasn't bad just not as great as i'd hoped.

I love coming here but today I got sat at a table that was dirty. Then I got moved to another table and it took my waiter a long time to show up. I had to summon for him. Then my order was brought out incorrect. Lastly a fly tried to land on my plate. I don't know how to... More

I have driven by this place literally a thousand times. It's always enticed me from the reviews and the long line out the door. We got there around 7:30p on a Thursday and there was a 40 minute wait. To our surprise it ended up only being a 25 minute wait for the 6 of us. We were comfortably seated... More

The chicken and waffles was an interesting choice. Through many recommendations I ordered the chicken breastfeeding and waffle and a side of mac n cheese. The order came relatively quick and was rather tasty. I was pleased with the great service. The server and busboy were very attentive. The decor was appropriate for the restaurant. I even took pictures next... More

The portions are HUGE and it's comfort food! Everything we tried, even the giblets were excellent. Even though everything is fried, it's not greasy or heavy. The chicken was juicy, crunchy and just awesome!!Don't miss the sides- mac and cheese, rice and gravy or the cornbread. You'll be full for DAYS!!! My only minor disappointment was the biscuit as it... More

I have heard so much about this place. I was excited to finally make it there. The food did not disappoint. Great place. Will probably go back before my trip is over.

We visited Roscoe's one morning for breakfast. We ordered chicken with waffles and syrup. I wasn't sure how they would taste together as its not something we have together in the UK. However it was really tasty. The waffles were really fluffy and the chicken was delicious. The herbs and spices on the chicken are much better than a well... More
