    If there is a wait, get an order to go. You can soak up all the atmosphere you'll need while you wait for your order, and then you can enjoy in the comfort of your own house/hotel room/apartment!

    The chicken! And the waffles! The fried chicken is great on its own, and so are the waffles. (Maple syrup would be nice.) Get both!All you need to know is right there in he name.

    Chicken & Waffles is an urban spin on southern Soul Food, originating in Harlem. However, Roscoe's in LA is the most famous place for C&W, referenced in movies & songs. Use both syrup and hot sauce!

    I got the Carol C... Fried juicy chicken breast (get it w/ hot sauce), & a fluffy, cinnamon-y, vanilla waffle & syrup. Yum!

    Roscoe's is an LA institution and a favorite of Al Roker’s, with seven LA locations. Remember to to dip the chicken into maple syrup for an especially delicious snack.

    Roscoe's is THE place for chicken and waffles. Their amazingly delicious and juicy chicken pairs perfectly with their awesome waffles. Try it - you seriously won't regret it.

    Roscoe's House truly serves the best fried chicken,but do we floss or brush our teeth properly to get rid of cavities & plaque.As small pieces of chicken left in between the teeth causes tooth ache.

    If visiting Hollywood or just passing through, Roscoe's is the way to go late at night, during the day, or whenever you please! Chicken and waffles is the best combo.

    When you go there, be prepared to fall in line and wait for a table, specially during dinner on weekends. Parking will be not easy, too. But it will be all worth it.

    Sometimes, the most bizarre combinations, can be brilliant. Their batter is thick, sticky, and crispy. The right amount of sweet, with the right amount of salt.

    The Chilli Cheese fries are great. Try No. 3 or 4 on the menu for an all out meal - 4 pieces of chicken, 2 waffles!

    No reservations, but worth the wait for - you guessed it - large portions of chicken and waffles. At the very least, the wait will help you build up an appetite.

    Hungry? Do 2 thighs, 1 waffle, and Mac n Cheese. You'll be good. If you are thinking you can handle more then add a biscuit and gravy on top of that.
