    When He's just not up to creating anything, much less cooking, God orders the waffles here. If you're one of those chicken-skin eaters, you'll figure you've died and gone to heaven. Read more

    yall know about the food, but the l.b. roscoe's has a rad bar/lounge where they play live music (soul and r&b when i've gone). order a 'tokyo tea' or 'l.a. water' if you mean business.

    Very Good Chicken and Waffles/ Gravy on the side, The best? well... It is worth the experience and the atmosphere for sure. Must do while in So Cali. Good Bloody Mary's too!

    I went for the first time this past weekend and absolutely LOVED it. I will be back next time I'm in the LA area for sure. The wait time is worth it.

    The best reason to suffer the LA traffic for a day trip. Cant go wrong with a Scoes special, chicken and waffles. Please open a location in San Diego.

    It's fried chicken and waffles with tasty maple syrup. How can you go wrong? Fat, salt and sugar. The human body loves this.

    If you aren't in a finger licking chicken mood, go for the buckwheat waffles, they taste way better than the normal ones. You won't be disappointed.

    A number 18 with an extra thigh and a side of cheese & onions eggs is the best.

    Try the fried chicken with their gravy! And if you end up taking some waffles home, reheat them in the toaster.

    Great chicken & waffles; HOWEVER, noticed that they have preferential seating for "certain" people who walk in and don't have to wait when everyone else waits for almost an hour

    I wish I could smack the bitch that said this place is overpriced and the chicken is undercooked. I've always had delicious food and make it a point to come here when I hit the area.

    Chicken and Waffles were amazing and so was Jeanne Jones omlette..but i agree, it was overpriced. $5 for Candy Yams? $3 for a small glass of OJ..? Really? AND horrible service..

    I usually go with #2 (1/4 chickin with gravy + 2 waffles), but #9 (3 wings + waffles) has been highly recommended.
