I went there last year with a friend. We went their to eat a few days. It's family oriented and inexpensive. My friend went without me and saw Jay Cole the musician their one night. It's a great place to eat and has a wonderful atmosphere.

Upon receiving my plate, I was a tad disappointed. I think i expected to see a Belgium waffle, or at least a bigger one. I think I've had Eggo's less flat. However, it was delicious and paired with some of the best fried chicken ever, the meal was NOT a disappointment. I got the Obama special and it was so... More

Our family went there as we love Chicken & Waffles! We had secretly hoped we'd get to see Snoop or some celebrity, but we did not! However, the food and people there were super friendly and the food was outstanding! This is a great place anytime of the day!!

We have never been to this location, but stopped by on our way to San Diego. I ordered the Carol's Special and my husband ordered the Obama Special. The older African American host helped us get change for the meter then seated us, and was pretty cool. Our waitress was very nice, food came out quickly and tasted awesome (I... More

I've been to this location with friends multiple times and the ambiance provides the perfect hang out place. The chicken and waffles are flavorful and superb. I love their tropical juices, too.

My husband and I live in the DC area and have only heard of Roscoe's from TV and popular culture. It definitely lived up to its reputation. The chicken was great (well seasoned, juicy, and flavorful) and the waffles were delicious. It was not just another day at IHOP with some tired chicken as a side. We will definitely return... More
