This place is great for a reasonably priced lunch or dinner! A place to eat good chicken and waffles as well as look out for celebrities! You may have to queue but not for long. I had the chilli chicken cheese chips, they were yummy!

I had heard so much about Roscoe's, that I couldn't wait to try it. I was a little disappointed as the waffles were just OK and the chicken wasn't as tasty as I expected. It may have just been an off day, but I really wanted more flavor and a wow! factor. That didn't happen. At least I can say... More

This place hardly needs a review. It's iconic. Gotta drop by. If you hit it on a weekend expect to wait up to an hour. This place draws people of all kinds from everywhere. The chicken is excellent - if overpriced. There are set dinner combos that somehow aren't exactly what one would like - but no substitutions. Anything on... More

What is there to say about the famous Roscoe's Chicken & Waffle. It was good. The chicken and the waffle lol. The sweet tea was actually like this tropical peach flavored...no for me lol. Maybe if I had prepared my taste buds lol. We went on a late Friday morning and was immediately seated so that was awesome because I'm... More

Was thinking I'd get something really special but the chicken and waffles were something I could do at the house. The price was affordable, thankfully, but the food was just ok. Nothing super special. Fast service though. Clean restaurant.

For those of you who have read my previous reviews, you know I shoot straight from the hip: no nonsense – just the facts. I have gone to Roscoe’s several times while visiting in LA and have always had a good time. The food is always good and is served quickly. This time was no exception except……… our server -... More

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Roscoe's. You can't come to LA without a trip there at least once. The food and service is always great. The Obama, 3 wings and a waffle is just enough to fill ya up.

I've heard if you go to LA you've got to try Roscoe's. It was on a Saturday night. It was a line of people on the waiting list, but we weren't waiting long before being seated. There was more on the menu than just chicken n' waffles. The sunset drink (Lemonade and Fruit Punch) was great. The food came out... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
