So, I'm a Roscoe's Pro! I've been to every Roscoes in Southern California. This isn't the best one, but it'll do the trick. If you can't get to Pico or Gower, check this one out.

People kept saying go to Roscoe's as it has the best fried chicken. So we went to Roscoe's location in Pasadena and the fried chicken was very good, but not the best in the area (so far, that goes to Red Herring on Colorado Blvd)....More

Never had chicken and waffles before, but Roscoe's has a cult following, so we stopped in to try it. The line was crazy and the food was a little pricy. However, we enjoyed our food. It's a little weird to add waffles, syrup and chicken...More

The food is amazing, but the service makes the experience not worth it. We were seated at around 1pm on a Sunday and waited for over an hour and a half to get our food. The waiter checked on us twice during that entire period,...More
