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

The first thing you notice when you enter the place is the fact the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I ordered the fried chicken with gravy. Waffles. Biscuit. Half and half of Lemonade and Iced Tea. All excellent. Got some collard greens and Mac and Cheese to taste too. Man, I cannot wait to go back.

Visited Roscoe's with a friend who lives in Pasadena following a recommendation. As a European I did not understand how chicken and waffles can work, but it does work and it was great. I had the chicken wings and waffles with a side order of gravy (the Obama special). The restaurant is pretty much like a diner and this is... More

The decor is something you might find in any local cafe along a rural highway. Nothing fancy. But the food and staff make up for it. At first I thought chicken and waffles was a strange combination,but they make it work and they do it well. A very satisfying experience and reasonably priced.

My husband and I both ordered my favorite, wings and waffles. The biggest problem was finding it on the menu. It is very disorganized and cumbersome. They could certainly benefit from a marketing viewpoint to streamline their menu. But even if it was a struggle to find my favorite combo, it was worth it. The chicken was moist and tender,... More

The place is highly over-rated. I have gone by twice because of the lines that I have seen waiting outside. However, the service was poor (too long of a wait to both order and receive my food, as well as an unprofessional staff) and the food was "less than ordinary". This is from someone who knows what real southern food... More
