    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.

    Perfect visit. Waited no more than 10 min. to get in on Wed. nite, food came out VERY quick, fed fam of 6 for $70. Chicken n Sunset drink was Bombay, Mac n cheese melts in your mouth. WATCH YOUR STEP!

    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!

    Sundays see a whopping brunch crowd, so get there early. Even though they don’t take reservations, this is a great place to take large groups. The Long Beach location features a jazz bar. Read more · October 7, 2011

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

  • Miss Karma R.

    We were seated right before someone else behind us and their food was already out before our waiter CORBIN even came to our table! He sucks, no tip for him! I shouldn't have to complain to get service

  • Danyelle D.

    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.

    Join the horde of smartphone-using folks waiting for a table here! No matter what time, or what day, this place is so popular you can expect to wait. So be prepared! And enjoy a Country Boy!

    Cee . A · May 26, 2011

    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. · September 25, 2011

    Herb special smothered with one each buttermilk and buckwheat waffles plus Mac n cheese, greens and grits/smothered potatoes. Make sure you get an Eclipse.

    CA (Eat) - a LA Classic, Roscoe's fried chicken with waffles is the perfect after-club drunk food. Who knew fried chicken dipped in maple syrup could be so magical?!

    Main courses: good - make sure you try some chicken and waffles. Sides: avoid - they are small and cold. Service: OK - they try hard but a few mistakes with our order.

    Carl Hazeley · April 5, 2014
  • Softub I.

    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.

    Softub Inc. · February 22, 2012
  • Ryan B.

    THE chicken and waffles with the can't miss sides of grits and mac n' cheese. Everything is covered with BUTTER!

    Chicken and waffles, an unlikely sounding combination, but apparently they’ve been serving up this Southern curiosity since 1975. – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations Read more

    The Carol C is a pretty choice selection for those who are first timers. Be sure to utilize the syrup for not only the waffles, but the chicken!

    Evan[Bu] · October 25, 2011
  • Mars

    Always amazing. I've seen so many famous people here it's crazy. There's always a wait but it's worth it.

    Mars · December 10, 2014
  • Anastasia G.

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

    Anastasia Giorgiova · August 12, 2015
  • Mel C.

    If you can fit it, order the scrambled eggs with cheese and onions. It is so silky smooth and tastes unlike any egg dish I've ever had.

    Mel Caylo · January 3, 2011
  • Jany

    avoid. 40 min wait to get an overfried cardboard tasting chicken, burnt batter and flavorless gravy. waffle is good. chicken burger and salads avoid at all cost.

    Jany · March 16, 2014
  • Mia S.

    Try their Scoe's #2. And ask for extra gravy coz it's to die for! Also try Obama's special!

    Took a bit long to get someone's attention to order, but the chicken and waffles were on point.

    Food was great, service is okay. Nothing fancy, just good ole Roscoes. I wonder why they don't have souvenir magnet though? Just my thoughts

    Waffles and Breast is all you need. If you order a dish that doesn't have chicken AND waffles, I don't know what you're doing at this restaurant.

    Andrew del Mundo · April 1, 2011
  • Nej K.

    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.

    Nej Kutcharian · April 20, 2014
  • Franz S.

    Local institution that is worth the wait if you see a line outside. Come hungry and don't mind if the place is a bit noisy.

    Franz Strasser · July 3, 2012
  • Robby S.

    What's again it's all about the chicken and waffles and gravy don't forget the chili fries!

    Robby Schellenberg · March 25
  • Ayman S.

    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!

    BEST FRIED CHICKEN in town! They are (of course) also known for their waffles, too...but I'm not the biggest fan.

    Kyle Olson · September 16, 2011

    Def order the chicken n waffles. Wait can be long on a weekend night.

    Great place for late night fried chicken! A bit dark and dirty, but chicken is juicy! Prepare to wait

  • Nate T.

    #5! the omelet is just OK, but the waffle is to DIE for. HUGE. next time I'll stick to just two waffles though.

  • Jennifer H.

    Food was good, and the special was a great deal, but the manager had a serious attitude! I probably won't be back...

    Jennifer Harper · May 20, 2013

    Carol C special and the corn bread! The rice and the mac n cheese is too soggy for me. Greens are aight.

    CC Bursell · November 2, 2011
  • Sarah O.

    Carol C with lemonade. Put some hot sauce on the side. Once you've finished..... you'll want another waffle.

    Was really fast service. Great food. Either get the Sir Michael or the Carol C both are fantastic.

    James C · July 30, 2013
  • Eric C.

    All over LA. Order a combo. Either the chicken & waffles or the breast, mac n cheese, greens & cornbread.

    If you have to ask you'll never know. Get the chicken and waffles, cover it in syrup and get yer fatness on.

    Peter Pepper · August 15, 2011
  • Jennifer G.

    Try the 1/2 Chicken And Waffles - Well I've had just as good in the deep south...that is Miami!

    오미헤 · November 23, 2011
  • Morgan D.

    Order your waffles well-done so they're still a little crispy after you drown them in syrup!

    Morgan Davis · March 9, 2010
  • MrMuNoZ 7o7

    Get Tha sunrise drink and the Scoes meal. You can't go wrong!

    The Fried Chicken Breast with Mac and Cheese, collard greens and corn bread was amazing!!!!

  • John F.

    Do not attempt to eat there alone, not even during lunch. You will be ignored and your order will be wrong.
