There's a couple of things you need to know about Roscoe's. First of all, it's no joke. This isn't a theme restaurant, but real soul food, as real as it gets. Second of all, don't go thinking Roscoe's only has chicken and waffles. The smothered pork chops are worth a trip by themselves.

Whenever one thinks of Chicken n' Waffles, Roscoe's is the first and only place that comes to mind. Chicken is perfectly fried and juicy. And waffle is the perfect sweet compliment.

Gravy! – I went years without trying Roscoe's. My friends thought I was crazy because of it. But one night we all decided to go and I have to say that it was AMAZING! When we got there, we were seated right away and given our menus. The only thing was that our waiter was a bit rude. We all ordered and when we got our food we noticed we didn't get all that we ordered. But other than that everything else was great! The gravy is to die for! You can dip anything in it and it will taste amazing!

I must be a punk Because I can't Handle it – I don't know if I have reviewed this one...but it says the doctor wouldn't approve of the cholesterol filled fried chicken and syrup drenched waffles. But contrary to my belief, my appetite didn't approve of it either. Just not a good mix for me. I will leave this restaurant to the California natives.

Decent Food For A Decent Price – While in vaction in LA, we JUST HAD to visit many of the landmarks including Roscoe's. Not reading any reviews about this location, we had no idea what to expect. We went one night during the week at about 7pm. We lucked out and parked just about 60 feet away. As we approached, the big black man (security?) told us to go right in.

Inside it was super small. The "main" dining area had about 15 tables total and they were all close together.

We opted for the "back room" which was one big room (next to the kichen) with booths and tables spread out with plenty of room.

Our waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was very chill. I got a plate with half a chicken and two over easy eggs and toast, and no waffles suprisingly enough. It was all right i guess. My GF got a plate wtih a quarter of a chicken with waffles and she loved them.

The people there during our time there seemed to be a pinch of locals and mostly tourtisty types like ourselves.

It might have been too early or something for it to be loud and busy.

where else can you get a chicken and waffles combination? – everyone talks about chicken and waffles because not many restaurants serve chicken and waffles so that's why i love it. The chicken is good and waffles is good with a cinnamon flavor to it. I guess when i go, it's not too busy so my experience wasn't so bad, try to go when it's not so busy. The combination is really good and i believe that this roscoes is the original one, there are others as well.

This soul food institution is a cholesterol-drenched guilty pleasure. – The Scene
Roscoe's offers no-frills decor, but patrons aren't here for the furniture. If planning a Sunday lunch, show up early: It's a favorite brunch spot for locals, with families arriving in their Sunday best.

The Food
An L.A. institution immortalized in flicks like "Swingers" and "Pulp Fiction," Roscoe's is not for the cholesterol-conscious crowd: Fried chicken mixes with gravy-smothered hash browns in dishes that cardiac patients ought to avoid. Newcomers should order the Scoe's Special--chicken and waffles, of course--but return visitors should check out other soul-food staples like the giblets and rice with gravy and onions. The waffles themselves are fluffy and slightly sweet, so be careful not to drench them in too much syrup and butter. For breakfast, get the Big Mama Special--scrambled eggs perfectly blended with onions and cheese--and Big Mama, one of the waitresses, might even serve it to you.
