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.

Was on my to do list whilst in LA and I didn't regret it. The portions are intense and it lived up to my expectations. Couldn't finish the massive chicken though.

Was on a list of must do things for a trip to LA. Was warned about this particular Roscoes that the waiters/waitresses can have a bit of an attitude or nonchalant approach to service. We were quickly seated. The place is bigger than it looks from the outside. The food was good, did not disappoint. Chicken juicy but crunchy. The... More

Being one of the best known Chicken & Waffles places in the country I had big expectations. Roscoe's failed to deliver on service, flavor and after talking to people it's getting people in the door based on reputation or the after club crowd. We were sat immediately and waitress took our order within a few minutes. After that our table... More

Roscoes is on my list of must do things in California or Los Angeles. The food is great. The atmosphere always of cultural significance and the people are always kind and friendly. We always share meals family style at Roscoes. We do this because the menu is full of too many great options. When you share, everyone can have a... More

I am from the south and I am very funny about take out chicken places. No Churches or KFC for me....Of course when visiting LA I had to try Roscoe's since I had heard of its popularity. I was not disappointed. The food was really good. It was a bit on the pricey side....but still very tasty. I started to... More

Strange combination, but it's so good. Get the gravy on the side, I don't know what they put in it but it's something addictive. I don't eat here often, maybe twice a year, it's delicious but very heavy. I'll usually get a 2 piece and 2 waffles, sometimes split with my wife since it's so much food. If you haven't... More
