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

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.
