Came here with a couple of friends and my boyfriend. It was our first time at Roscoes and we still rave about it to this day. The wait was about 40 min and we've been wanting to try this place that we stuck by. It was warm out so we didnt mind. There were benches outside the restaurant for waiting.... More

My friend suggested that we meet at Roscoe's. Have never tried it but it was highly recommended. Food hit it right at home if you like chicken and waffles or anything breakfassy. Homey ambiance like the place you go to cause you know everybody or they are friendly. Servers were very attentive from the moment you park. The only downside... More

The chicken is amazing there and the waffles are just as good! One of the must go to spots in LA. The only downside was the parking...please make more spaces for the future.

The food was delicious as everyone said it would be. Our waiter was excellent and prompt. And the price was not bad at all. I think this restaurant was the first location which is why it had a older appearance to it and was alil tight and crowded. Next time I will try another newer location to see if it... More

My family visited LA last week on a pleasure trip. We did some touring and had dinner at this Roscoe's location. I ordered white meat chicken, collard greens, Mac and cheese, and cornbread. When my plate came, it looked delicious! It was not. My chicken breast was not cooked completed! The only item that was decent was the Velveeta Mac... More

There's a reason this restaurant has been visited by many celebrities. Not where I would go as an unfamiliar tourist but taken there by our niece who lives there.

Its Ben a long time since I've been here and the place still is amazing. The wait staff is friendly, the food comes out quick and you leave content.

The atmosphere is pretty down home, but comfortable. The wait was reasonable for an early dinner on a Sunday night. The waffles were amazing, the chicken pretty good but a lil dry. The mac and cheese was pretty good but at almost $5 for a little side dish, was overpriced. When my son accidentally forgot his orthodontic retainer in a... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
