Roscoe’s House of Chicken, Los Angeles

2 of 13

Roscoe’s House
of Chicken and Waffles is what happens when a Waffle House marries a Memphis
meat ‘n’ three and drives off to find fame in the Hollywood hills. The
Frisbee-size waffles come topped with a huge dollop of butter, and the
southern-style chicken—which is also delicious with rice and gravy—is not
over-breaded or too greasy. And the stars are certainly on board. Redd Foxx
famously dropped Roscoe’s name into comedy routines, and the restaurant is
mentioned in the movies Rush Hour and Swingers. Safe to say,
Roscoe’s is a Cali staple, but there’s still a Dixie whistle to the place.
Maybe it’s the chicken livers and giblets on the menu.
