If you are going to have chicken and waffles, go to Roscoe's

If you love fried chicken, and you like waffles, why WOULDN'T you marry the two?!? If you haven't tried the combo before, please don't go anywhere else because Roscoe's does it RIGHT. (I've had other places, and let's just say, they are no Roscoe's and it is APPARENT). Friendly staff, quick... read more

Best chicken and waffles ever. Service is quick, food is fresh , the chicken comes out hot and super juicy. Our waiter was perfect, even suggested a better deal, filled up drinks, and was on top of everything. Not only a famous spot, but constantly great. There's something about the waffles and syrup combined with undertones of cinnamon and vanilla... More

We ate here for brunch and our chicken was delicious. Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, and seasoned well. The waffle was fluffy. Service was good and our food came out fast. The rice and gravy was sub-par though. The gravy was just ok, and the rice wasn't great quality. The mac and cheese was rich and creamy... More

Never have had this combination of foods before, i.e. chicken and waffles. ... but it was very good. The waffles are floppy not hard and crisp. The service was great. We ordered it inside "to go" and the wait staff actually brought it out to the curb while we waiting in car.

I believe it sits between Sunset Blvd and Hollywood Blvd, you can actually see the Hollywood sign from the location. It's a good spot to stop if you want to tour the Hollywood walk of fame, the stars start just blocks away from this location. I had the chicken wings and waffles and it was ok, the chicken seemed a... More

Probably should have ordered something else. But, I placed a to go order to makeup for it.chicken wings were great and so were my eggs. Didn't care too much for the biscuit or the potatoes covered with gravy. Stick to the basics when coming here chicken wings and waffles and you will be good to go. Waffles aren't as thick... More

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.
