If you enjoy chicken and waffles, this is a must do. My wife and I shared an order of half chicken and waffles with gravy on the side and an order of mac n cheese. This was more than enough food for the two of us with enough leftovers for a late night snack. The chicken was delicious and crispy... More

I have never had the combination of Chicken and Waffles together but it was very tasty. They serve very large portions. The chicken was very good. I would definitely return here next time in LA.

The mix of chicken and waffles sounds crazy, but it works! Popular with locals (including Obama, when he's in town!) The servings are enormous, one serve could easily feed 2 or even 3, but doggy bags are available. Great place to get your 'Southern' fix.

but you should come here for (1) pretty good chicken and waffles and (2) interesting ambience! The location is right up the street from Paramount Studios and the old Columbia Studio lot and is pretty easy to find. Parking is a little tough but if you come off-hours it isn't so bad. We got seated pretty quickly since we were... More

I was staying at a hotel near LAX airport and happened to see Roscoe's house of Chicken and Waffles across the street. It was lunch time and I thought I'd give it a try. The restaurant was apparently new as all the furnishings and fixtures were spotless. The place was very busy, but we did not have to wait long... More

We came in for a late brunch and could not pass up getting a chicken and waffle combo, especially after seeing and smelling the crispy, aromatic chicken on the plates of passing servers. The portions are generous, the staff friendly and attentive. I personally liked the dim, bar-like atmosphere of the booth area where we were seated. But the standout... More

One of those must see places due to popularity. The place is small and crowded and there is no elbow room. There used to be valet parking in the past but no longer. Parking on he street is also limited. It is located in an area in which one must be careful. However, most of Los Angeles is that way.... More

The food is very good and the waffles are to die for! It seemed a bit run down but nothing major as long as the food is good right?

Hot, crispy and oh so good chicken. The waffle batter must be mostly made of butter and sugar because it tastes so good. Who knew that chicken and waffles go so well together? I always get the Obama which is 3 chicken wings with a waffle. This place is always busy, so be prepared to wait for a table. I... More
