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.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to get your fried chicken and waffles fix. The waffles are really the best I've ever tasted. There seems to be a hint of cinnamon in it. I put the butter and syrup on it and it tasted like no other waffle I've had before. The wings were awesome too - and... More

This was the second time we have been and both times I have had the chicken and waffles. So worth the trip. They have other "soul food" but I can't bring myself to get anything other than C&W. I will definitely go back every time I am in the area.

What a combination, but it works! Great chicken, great waffles. Loved by the locals. Some of the best waffles I have ever had. An LA tradition.

Food is good...nothing too crazy, but the chicken and waffles are tasty...nothing over the top, but fits the bill. Savory, salty, and good.
