Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles
5006 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90019
(323) 934-4405
Multiple Locations

A waffle list without Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles just wouldn't be complete. At this famed L.A. eatery, guests can order their waffles with or without the chicken, but most prefer to indulge by putting a southern spin on the dish by adding in fried chicken. The waffles are soft and may not hold up to the weight of the chicken but on their own they are delightful. Roscoe's can be a bit noisy, but it adds to the allure of this celebrated restaurant. Get ready to wait though, as it's one of the more popular places to experience in Los Angeles.
