Roscoe's House of Chicken
File this one under 'guilty pleasures'. It sounds strange to combine chicken and waffles on the same plate, but you've got to try the fare at Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles. It's out of this world good. Sure, it's high in cholesterol but sometimes you just have to live. This down-home Southern stop also offers grits and all the soul-food accoutrements, including black-eyed peas, mac and cheese, cornbread, all kinds of greens and more. Thank heaven for wet-naps. The manager says "Come once and you'll be back for more."
Okay, I'm being for real. I'm from the south. The chicken was great. Everything else was just okay. Come to the south for home cooking that's out of this world spectacular and much lower prices.
That's for real!!!
I recently had the pleasure of dining at Roscoe's. I thought it was little odd that there were two entrancesm but so be it. As far as parking, the options were street parking or valet. The restaurant was a bit dark in side, but I could see my food. The waitress was very nice (smiled a lot), but didn't seem to comprehend english that well. My food came out within 5 minutes of placing the order and it was piping hot! Everything was delicous - chicken (which I might add was seasoned to perfection), waffle (which was almost the size of the plate it was served on), collard greens and macarroni and cheese. The prices was very reasonable. I highly recommend Roscoe's...they truly set themselves apart from others! I can't wait to go back.
I was so excited to finally go took a 2 hour drive for nothing the waffle was over cooked and the chicken had so much salt on it my body began to swell. No matter how much water I drank it didnt help. I went to the bathroom where it was so old in side it almost seems as though the wall would fall down. There was no tissue in 1 stall so we told them and with all the women working there why was a man so interested to refill the tissue are the women there not able to care for the womens room?
they recently expanded to next door so no longer is there too big a wait.
if you're in the mood for some good hearty grubbing, this is the place to be.
i always start out with a thirst quenching sunrise (lemonade and oj).
depending on the stomach space for that day, i usually go for a 'scoes special (gravy on the side.. i like to smother my own chicken!) or the 3 wings special.
You can't just go there to have the chicken and waffles. I always order some yummy sides like the mac and cheese (taste like they use all real cheese and no velveeta.. good either way) and kick ass juicy greens.
end it all with a great slice of corn bread or a side of yams. i am starting to drool.
