There is not one thing on the menu that is healthy. But the chicken is amazing. The collard greens were good, too. Other sides tried were beans & rice, cornbread, they were so-so. Went next door to KFC for coleslaw.... but, typically, I call ahead...More

When in Los Angeles, Roscoe's is in order. "Scoe's 1/4 Chix smothered with gravy & onions, 2 waffles, our own mix" I couldn't finish the chicken and gravy but man was it good. Eat here on an empty stomach, you'll want to savor every bite.

This place is a classic. They serve huge pieces of chicken with excellent waffles. It's always a kick. The mac and cheese is excellent too. It's got the hustle and bustle feel of a community diner. It's a fun place to go!

Prefect Chicken and Waffles... chicken comes out HOT and JUICY with great size to the breasts... waffles are warm, thin, with lots of butter and just plain out of this world. If your into old school Mac and Cheese... this is the place for you.....More

If the food were overwhelming, the interior seating would not matter, but along with the food, I felt ripped off. Very little meat on the chicken and the cardboard waffle. Wow on the collard greens, but cold and clammy. Expensive for a lot of hoopla...More
