The food came out fast

The food came out fast, which is good. I suppose they have chicken being continuously cooked, I assume because if your coming there your ordering chicken. The decor needs to be updated. Other than that good food. The waffles are thin so they don't stop you from eating anything else.

This is an authentic fried chicken restaurant. It is small and parking can be hard. It is perhaps the best known fried chicken restaurant in the county, mentioned in many movies. It is worth a visit.

We ate at this location after the nearby Paramount Studio tour. A very basic setting, but the chicken and waffles are the attraction, not the room.

This place is an institution, always filled with customers. In fact, I find the food to be mediocre, not worth the trouble. But, many, many disagree.

We had heard about Roscoe's on tv and decided to give it a try. It's a small restaurant and there was a 30 minute wait but it was worth it. The fried chicken was delicious and the waffle hit the spot. The waiter was friendly and the service was fast once we got it. The prices were very affordable. Great... More

Got chicken and waffles to go. After a long day of traveling, this hit the spot. Order was filled fast. Waitress was friendly and the cost was reasonable. The fried chicken and waffles were great!

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 understand why. It... 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.

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.
