The chicken and waffles was an interesting choice. Through many recommendations I ordered the chicken breastfeeding and waffle and a side of mac n cheese. The order came relatively quick and was rather tasty. I was pleased with the great service. The server and busboy were very attentive. The decor was appropriate for the restaurant. I even took pictures next... More

The portions are HUGE and it's comfort food! Everything we tried, even the giblets were excellent. Even though everything is fried, it's not greasy or heavy. The chicken was juicy, crunchy and just awesome!!Don't miss the sides- mac and cheese, rice and gravy or the cornbread. You'll be full for DAYS!!! My only minor disappointment was the biscuit as it... More

I have heard so much about this place. I was excited to finally make it there. The food did not disappoint. Great place. Will probably go back before my trip is over.

We visited Roscoe's one morning for breakfast. We ordered chicken with waffles and syrup. I wasn't sure how they would taste together as its not something we have together in the UK. However it was really tasty. The waffles were really fluffy and the chicken was delicious. The herbs and spices on the chicken are much better than a well... More

The Fried Chicken and Waffles were some of the best I've ever had. They don't use little skinny chickens either as the wings, thighs and breasts were very plump and juicy. The trick is for everyone to get a different dish and share the chicken parts.

We visited from Malaysia. Outstanding fried chicken! Two of us had the Obama Special (3 wings and a waffle) and another had the Jean's special which is one piece of chicken with a bunch of sides. The chicken is pan-fried which is like we make at home. It was salty and delicious with some hot sauce. The waffle wa thin... More

By far, "The Best Fried Chicken" I've ever had. My wife and child surprised me taking me here for Father's day! They really do listen to me.... My daughter had heard me say I've never been to Roscoe's before.... have always talked about it with friends and joked about it with colleagues, and even razzed my daughter after her boyfriend...

There is almost always a wait, but it is worth it. It also isn't cheap, but you get the most authentic food around. There is something addictive about fried chicken and waffles!
