    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?!

    4am fried chicken, and waffles with syrup? It's yet another reason why America is fat, and LA is awesome.

    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!
