Nice spot for the local favorites. Went at 11pm and only waited 25 mins. I thought I'd be there longer. Love their mac and cheese and yams. A great stop when I visit.

I have always wanted to eat at the famous Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles...so I did with some family from Missouri. It was good, but honestly nothing to rave about. I can make better fried chicken and my waffles are yummy too. Plus, the young lady at the register where we paid was not friendly, never smiled as we paid for... More

I drank a root beer while my wife had a red wine. Food arrived within 5 minutes. The chicken was excellent, crispy coated, cooked right through and very... More

The place looks a bit shady but it's all part of the fun. Eating delicious fried chicken, yummy waffles, and great cornbread is what this place is all about. Nothing fancy, but fast service, great fried chicken and shockingly inexpensive. After a bunch of expensive two hour long pretentious LA Chef type meals, it's good to do away with the... More

Best Fried Chicken! How do they get it so crispy and yet juicy??? Have to drop in every time we're in LA. This time I ordered smartly...lol!...I ordered 2 pieces of thighs and that's it! Previously, I had the waffles and chicken which was good but it was too much food! The husband ordered chicken with grits, biscuits and gravy.... More

My father n law tried the collard greens and Mac n cheese with chicken.He stated the chicken was good but the sides were not. I already knew what I wanted when we arrived. I ordered the chicken and waffles and was very pleased.... More

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!
