Ate at Roscoe's immediately before a Dodger game. Never had chicken & waffles before and the waffles melt in your mouth. They must have cinnamon in the batter and they are so light and fluffy. The chicken is amazing also. I can't wait to go back the next time I am in LA.

This is one of the few places I crave for fried chicken. I must try. If you have never tried it before definitely try the chicken and waffle. I also have good mac and cheese.

Ordered the #1 on the menu with dark chicken pieces and the whole meal was undeniably delicious!! The chicken was crispy and juicy and the waffles were tremendous!! They give quite a bit of food and I couldn't even eat all the waffles!!

I've been trying quite a few restaurants that serve chicken and waffles these days throughout Los Angeles and Roscoe's is still the best. Fantastic chicken served piping hot and a still warm waffle are hard to beat. Almost everywhere else you go the waffle is almost always warm at best and cold on average. Not here. Highly recommended. The wait... More

First thing, this is the best fried chicken I have ever had. The waffles were also amazing with a cinnamon touch to them. There was a wait both times I went but the lines move quickly so do not feel intimidated. It was also right near the W Hollywood where I was staying so we were able to easily walk... More

Stopped in here based on a recommendation from a friend of my Fiancé. I had the Obama special and some cornbread, she had Mac n cheese and something else that I can't remember. It was well worth the visit. They get a thumbs up from us.

The wait was about 30 minutes which I didn't mind waiting so long for world famous chicken and waffles. It's a popular place so of course the wait will be long. Once we were seated, we received promp and courteous service. The menu had options for people of all appetites. We tried chicken, waffles, and mac and cheese. All were... More

Was in town from Chicago to try Roscoe's. Heard this location in Hollywood was small duo decided to do carry out. Ordered three Obama wings dinners. Each had a different side, potato salad, waffle and fries. The chicken was seasoned well but could have been fried longer. The waffle was good but was light in color. The most disappointing side...

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.
