One of the best fried chicken

I heard about this soul testaurant from food network tv and want to try for long time. They have one of the best fried chicken for real, try chili chicken with waffle-it is a good combination.

This restaurant has been in Pasadena for ages and pairs 2 unlikely items for a delicious taste treat; fried chicken and waffles. Who ever would have thought that maple syrup accidently getting on your fried chicken would taste so good. My dad who lives in San Francisco, must have some Roscoe' every time he visits. If you "must" eat healthy,... More

This was my first experience with chicken and waffles - I've had fried chicken, and I've had waffles, but put them together and WHOA what an experience! It's the perfect brunch food. The place is cute and casual, not a fancy restaurant but clean and comfortable. Come here for the food!!! The waffles were perfectly fluffy and tasted a bit... More

It's a trend setter, always has been. I have tried chicken and waffles all over the country and it's never the same. The eggs are fluffy, the greens are wonderful and it's the only place I eat gizzards. Roscoes is always a must stop and if your still contemplating a trip to Pasadena or Los Angeles I hope this and... More

I know, it sounds kinda strange-- chicken and waffles together, but there's something about the combined flavors that will make you come back every time you're in the Los Angeles area. The menu says, "...a succulent chicken breast", and they aren't kidding! The waffles, butter, and syrup have a slight cinnamon flavor. I always add a side of their scrambled... More

Must admit that I had heard good things in the past about the unique flavor combination of "bird and batter" (chicken and waffles), but I had never been to a Roscoe's to judge for myself. So, imagine my delight when my daughter and son, who had both been before and liked it, suggested that we meet up at a halfway... More
