The chicken was great! The waffles, so-so. A little soggier than what we would have preffered. The food is a little overpriced for fried chicken in my opinion. But the portions are big. The biscuits are fantastic. The service was excellent and the ambience was great. Would definitely come back.

I have been wanting to go here for a long time based on different TV shows and even references from my oldest son. I would not go back. Here is why? The chicken while it is decent it is nothing out of this world. It is plain and not very tasty. You can compare this to the fresh fried chicken... More

Visited a few weeks ago on a Sunday. Waffles to die for! Something about the syrup and the way the waffles are cooked makes it work. Chicken is good and not greasy. Not cheap but the service makes it worth it.

I love the fried chicken livers here. This is my place to go when I don't care about eating too much fried foods! The portions are large, the taste consistent, and reasonable prices.

I live nearby and I have been to this location numerous times. The food was always good and except for the yams being a tad too syrup-y everything is really yummy. The one thing that always gets me though is the servers. I have yet to encounter a waitress that is genuinely friendly and helpful. I know it's not me,... More

The food is OK, service poor. If you really want Chicken & Waffles try Poppy & Rose downtown in the Flower district. Great food.

The food was alright but service was average. After spending $80 they also wouldn't call us a cab, we are not even from the states and our phone battery died.. Not like we all had local phones sitting around, we told them that. Tasted good but not anything I couldn't get elsewhere. Wouldn't hurry back

Yes, when you travel to L.A., remember to try the chicken and waffles. No matter which location you visit, it is worth every bite. So, when you are in Southern Cal, never leave L.A. without a taste of Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles! Oh, my goodness, the food tastes like a true down home southern recipe!

I'd give it 3.5 if I could. The fried chicken was darned good, not great though. The yams were a little too syrupy sweet, and the mac n cheese done just right. The portions weren't huge, but fair for the price. The ambience is about what you'd expect from the name. But what I appeciated most, was the fast, efficient... More

This place is heaven in a chicken and waffle! The food here is almost indescribable. I got the waffle with a chicken breast and a leg with the chicken dipped in their gravy. Wow!!! This is a must eat when in Los Angeles.
