I've visited consecutively for dinner lunch and breakfast the first time I went, ages ago. We went for lunch recently, and it's still that good. Any place could have an off day, but not the day we went with a friend! Somehow that is still the best chicken and waffles together that I've ever had!! It's like your grandmother makes... More

This was a great food experience. My new wife and I was unusually hungry and this was the perfect solution. She ordered the daily special and I got the number one. The chicken was cooked to perfection and we both agreed that there was something different about the waffles that made them nothing short of phenomenal. The gravy with rice... More

Heard about the famous Roscoe's and I was in town, so I had to try the interesting chicken and waffle combo. People are so into this chicken and waffle thing, but I kinda had the opposite experience. I really hope the kitchen had an off day (which shouldn't be the case), because the skin was barely eatable like it was... More

Something's gone a fowl here. I've been coming here for over 20 years and loved the place. Not this Time! Waffles came out ice cold, so I sent them back and they out them in the microwave and brought them back all soggy and nasty. My wife cut into her chicken and it was all bloody. Totally disgusting. Won't be... More

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.

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.
