Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles satisfies cravings

In Downtown Long Beach, there is a restaurant that serves comfort food that keeps customers coming back for more.

That restaurant is Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles. Roscoe’s is known for their famous fried chicken and waffle platters.

Although Roscoe’s is a busy restaurant with limited parking, and a lengthy time to be seated, it’s been keeping Californians happy since 1975.

The hyped chicken joint has a casual environment that makes customers feel like they are at grandma’s kitchen eating and having a great time with family or friends. The restaurant is very humble, inexpensive, and cozy.

With many chicken and waffle platters to choose from, my gut instinct went with the “Carol C. special”.

The plate consists of one fried chicken breast and waffle. The fried chicken breast was superb. The chicken was hot, right out of the fryer made with all white meat that was very easy to strip down.

The chicken was seasoned with the right amount of herb ingredients. The round waffle was in a neat presentation with butter placed in the middle. The thin waffle was soft, very easy to cut through.

The waffle melted in the mouth with a punch of vanilla flavor. Overall, the plate was delicious, and qualifies for repetition. Customers can replace waffles with Roscoe’s French fries or potato salad.

Roscoe’s has a variety of platters. For a southern breakfast, customers should try the

“Home style” platter that consists of two sausage patties, eggs, and grits.

If customers want an omelets, the “Jeanne Jones omelets” comes with chicken and cheese with a combination of a waffle or French fries.

For a complete southern dinner, customers should try the different “House combos” that come with fried chicken and distinct combinations to choose from like red beans, rice, greens, creamy macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and sweet yams.

Roscoe’s also offers  burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

Roscoe’s has a long list of beverages ranging from milk, coffee, apple juice, fruit punch, lemonade, beer, and alcoholic drinks.

For tasty southern food, stop by any of Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffle locations at Pasadena, Inglewood, Hollywood, or Los Angeles.
