We decided to track this place down to see what all the hype was about. It was certainly packed out, and very dark. Like bar dark. Not quite sure why. But I was excited. It sounded like a typical fat American paradise. I got what you can imagine I got: Chicken and waffles. And also a side of mac and... More

Great service, fast and quick, to top it off; food was delicious. I ordered chicken and waffle which is what they are mainly known for. I use to go to big boys for that meal till someone recommended this place. My new place to eat. Perfect on the crispiness and homemade waffle hit the spot. I recommend it as well.... More

The quality of the meet is unbelievable. It's very unusual for my taste to mix the chicken meet with sweet waffles and maple syrup. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, always crowded, I could see happy people kissing bones! :)

Wonderful experience at Roscoe's. Wait was about 20 minutes for a Friday night which isn't bad and the service/food was great. Would return again!

I've only been here 2 times. Once was 14 years ago and the 2nd time was just a week ago. They have expanded big time and the wait time went from 2 hours down to 30 minutes. We had a family of 6. I love their chicken and their waffles. So delicious. I think they actually got better, if that... More

Good chicken and the crust was crispy but the flavor was just not there for me. I was hoping that they would have brined the chicken or at least marinated it before frying it. It wasn't bad just not as great as i'd hoped.

I love coming here but today I got sat at a table that was dirty. Then I got moved to another table and it took my waiter a long time to show up. I had to summon for him. Then my order was brought out incorrect. Lastly a fly tried to land on my plate. I don't know how to... More

I have driven by this place literally a thousand times. It's always enticed me from the reviews and the long line out the door. We got there around 7:30p on a Thursday and there was a 40 minute wait. To our surprise it ended up only being a 25 minute wait for the 6 of us. We were comfortably seated... More

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
