Great experience.

Great food. Good service. Very casual setting. Lucked out got parking right in front. Dinged one point as I wish they had more comfortable seating. Of course had the chicken and waffles! Highly recommend. Would repeat.

When I came into town, my brother stated I had to give Roscoe's chicken and waffles a try. He has been a local for the last 16 years and I trust his recommendations. I decided to try them out on a weekday right after they opened as to beat the lunch rush. I lucked out on grabbing a parking spot... More

I kept it simple and got the signature dish. It was very fresh and tasty. My friends loved their dishes, the small things made a big impression, for instance the sweet tea. They have such high volume the waiters don't stand a chance

Had the sco's special. The fried chicken was so good that made my colleague who is from West Virginia homesick. They do take out as well, but I highly recommend getting a table, even if it might take a hour, and enjoying your waffles fresh at the resturant.

Happy to get to take the family here. Most of us had the chicken and waffles - of course. The chicken was good and the waffles were yummy - but definitely not the best ever. I would bet that late night early morning meal, post night on the town would taste differently. I am glad we went, but have not... More

Don't really know why this place is iconic. From terrible service to the dryest chicken ever. The waffle....couldn't even finish it...made my tummy hurt....never again.

If your in the Los Angeles area you need to try the original Roscoe's on Gower street. Depending on what time of the day you go it's always packed so expect to wait a good 30 to 45 minutes depending on how many people that are in your party.

We had wonderful meals there - waffles, chicken & waffles, and eggs & waffles. Service was top-notch and everything tasted so great. Yes, the interior is a little outdated, but it adds to the ambiance and legitimacy. Clientele was very mixed - businessmen eating lunch next to us, families, couples - and all seemingly enjoying their meals. Clearly there's a... More

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.
