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.

This place is famous for being famous. Chicken was chewy and dry. The waffle was “ok” at best. Two people no sides or drinks $42 for an average meal.

What is it that draws the crowds to limp waffles and fried chicken? Boy was I disappointed and yet it draws long lines on weekend. Different tastes but not for me

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

Roscoes is an iconic place. Have been to this location and the original location in Los Angleles. Service is great although when busy staff is running. I’ve always experienced very pleasant service. Nothing fancy at either location. Food is good can’t say great but worth...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
