How would you rate Roscoe's House of Chicken & Wafflesm mlk, .?
I lovee roscoes! this place is delicious too bad im trying to keep in shape..
My go to spot for chicken and waffles. I absolutely love the atmosphere of this Roscoes! Chicken is delicious and never dry. Service is always good. Wait times can sometimes reach 2 hours on busy weekend nights which can also make parking difficult. Otherwise parking is usually good, you can park in the lots across the street. The don't allow splitting checks but they've done it if I do the math beforehand and ask nicely. Overall a positive experience here.
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF THAT NEED TRAINING. GO TO THE ONE ON MANCHESTER IN LOS ANGELES.
Delicious chicken breasts, and delicious waffles. The restaurant is crowded and noisy, and the staff seem like they don't want to be there. But the food is amazing. The chicken is succulent and taste really fresh. The combination of chicken and waffles is perfect. Price is slightly high, but it's well worth it. I would definitely want to come here again.
I never thought I would ever eat chicken and waffles together in the same meal, but it was great!! Try it, you will probably like it too!
This is probably my favorite Roscoe's location that I've been to. Usually you can go on a weekend (day) and only have to wait a short 10mins or so for a big party. They have a fairly large waiting area with a few seats, but also is akin to a full bar in the same building so you can get your drink on while you wait for your gluten!
I ALWAYS order the #1 Scoe Special that has 2 waffles and 2 pieces of chicken. I put hot sauce on the chicken and syrup/butter on my waffles...because doing it any other way would be stupid. I also order a side of grits (add sugar and butter) and smothered potatoes. OMG! This is my last dinner request for sure. I'm not going on death row anytime soon, but I feel good in knowing that if I do, I'll know what I wanna eat. You also got to get the Sunrise (orange juice and lemonade)!
The servers/waitresses are always nice + they have plenty of parking across the street in a lot and also street parking.
Awesome chicken, macaroni and cheese, and gravy covered rice can be discovered here....but it is not cheap, whatsoever. This place can break your bank with ease, very unexpectedly. They also always have numerous bouncers or something loitering around the front door. Maybe this place is more dangerous and unsafe than I had thought. Actually, I really hadn't thought about any security measures, especially when it came to a chicken eatery. However, maybe the bouncer over-population is due to the undisputed fact that the majority of the patrons/visitors to this place are black people.....and apparently, they have a tendency to "wild out". Oh well, the food was still good, but again, the prices are steep. Maybe the regulars should stop "wilding out", and the prices might decline........Maybe..
When going to a restaurant with a food item in the name, I highly recommend ordering that item. The chicken and waffles were very tasty! I thought there would be more of a 'feel' inside a Roscoe's, but there is no ambiance at all. The stone fire place seems very out sorts, the 42 inch television above my head was repeating a home made PowerPoint presentation about Roscoe's that didn't really work with the pink neon lights crown molding. You should only come to Roscoe's for the food.
Nice location. The original. Hasn't been a long wait lately. Food is full of calories but delicious.
Took my staff (34) in for breakfast; Charmaine was so attentive, organized and entertaining; her friendly and welcoming personality made us feel right at home. She and the servers made our experience absolutely wonderful. Food was delicious (as always) and served in a timely manner. Thank you Charmaine, servers, cooks & host; we will be coming back!!!
I am at Roscoe's chicken and waffles in Long Beach. the service and cleanliness of the building is very fast and uptight. I am into smiley faces I only see one worker smiling.I am having the chicken burger all white meat with lettuce and tomatoes and french fries I added cheese to the French fries into the sandwich.After waiting 10 minutes my order came out nice hot.I do not like how it looks on the play it just looks sloppy.I thought because I ate a long the server with interact with me more but she didn't been said it made the dining experienceA turn off Roscoe's house of chicken and waffles itself was not dislikeable but if it tidy up a little bit it will be a great place to dine out in eat for the next 10 or 15 years.
My review is based on 4 factors Price, Product, Location and Atmosphere. Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles is a local experience that should not be missed. Prices are fair for the food that you get and the food is good. Certainly not 5-Star quality but that's not their goal. Providing good food at a fair price with no frills is what they cater to. Chicken and Waffles is a southern thing and if you like them both you will enjoy their food. The franchise has been visited by President Obama and he has his own item on the menu. The atmosphere is modest and the location is decent with parking across the street. The only downside to location is that it sits at the intersection of a 1 way street, but that's no reason not to drive around the block. This location has become our breakfast stop after our weekend run in Long Beach.
Worst Roscoes I've ever been to. Chicken was red and chewy (not pink) waffle was hard and cold, gravy tasted plain and had the oil sitting on top as if it were left out. I'll never go back here again. I wish they had a corporate number to call and complain to because the manager Sheryl was absolutely no help. Spent almost $50 on cold undercooked food my family and I could not eat. #SnoopBuyRoscoesLBC
Greatest idea ever!! You can't go wrong with a little combo of chicken and waffles especially at roscoe's . Not only was the chicken crispy it tastes amazing with the warm syrupy waffles. Can't wait until my next visit certainly would be fun experience again.
Mac and cheese is da best!! Remind of da south.
Words cannot even describe my love for this place. Its not only the food that gets you, but the warm loving environment that the staff provide to the customers. The owner is super friendly and they offer a military discount which was even better! I recommend getting the Obama Special and if you have the chance, the cornbread and mac and cheese. Its the type of food that will leave you happy and coming back for more.
Roscoe's is so over hyped its not even funny. Honestly money not being an issue I would rather have Popeyes or churches. Portions are large but food is just kinda bland. Chicken breasts are dry, dark meat is ok but thats only half of the chicken. Not a place I would go back to.
The worst roscoe's ever & I've been to a couple now. The staff only helps whom they want & the manager rather play in the front with staff. I rather go places that i can get helped atleast, not to mention i drove 30 minutes for it... Talking to management after the holiday weekend is over.
Culinary magic. Chicken is on point, Crispy and juicy. The waffles are always great due to quality ingredients. I love the gravy on the side to dip my chicken into. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great place. Super cool vibe transports you from 115 desert heat into a cool dark wood paneled room with deep leather booths. Bartender was great, solid selection of drinks and beers and American Psycho playing on the TV. I'll be coming back again. I would work in this bar - hanging out, making awesome drinks, ice cold ac and killer movies playing all day? What's not to like?
Not a bad spot to see music.
It is a super local neighborhood spot.
I would go there again .
This is a spot for an older crowd this is not a pine street bar for sure.
Great service but would not take mom dad or a very picky date/friends here.
The decor and ambiance needs to be seen to know if it fits you.
Home of Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. I'm at this location almost twice a month. Great food, good music, excellent service, a diversified crowd... and there the ONLY Roscoe's that serves ALCOHOL. LOL Please don't drink and drive. Lots of parking right across the street. Open until about 2:30 on Fri/Sat. Love it!
Love the servers here, down to earth great staff. Always making sure you are treated well. Some of the jazz musicians I've seen here have been amazing. Get the Cadillac margarita.
One of the last jazz joints in the area, usually featuring five star musicians. The bar is a good place to sit while waiting for a table at the adjoining roscoe's chicken and waffles. Roscoe's will come for you in seabird and you can take your drinks across the foyer to the dining room. The place can get crowded and isn't always the friendliest, but it is safe with on-site security that's shared with roscoe's. Free and ample parking is available and monitored. Recommended, especially weekends, but come early as the venue can fill up fast.
just seen Cecil Brooks III there he was great! then to add the waffles and wings! Great Time!
Fantastic waiter. The stars are mainly for him. The food was just okay. Didnt feel like it lived up to the hype.
Parking there is very weird... They started using the lot across the street i guess.
Nice family or large group place. Takeout seems to be a huge plus there.
They also started doing cocktails if anyone was interested.
Best waffles I've ever tasted and the you get your food within 5 minutes of ordering
Its an experience you should definitely try at least once. 1am, fried chicken, waffles and fruit punch the best after hour food any drunk would enjoy. Honestly great service and food.
This place was ok. The music is great and the food. But, Drinks weren't the greatest and priced higher than the quality.
Love this bar! Every time I've gone I've always had such wonderful service and the drinks have always been made perfectly. Love the cool ambiance, it's not too crowded and can have conversations with friends! Keep up the great service it's always a pleasure returning here.
I've been here a couple times now and it's always a great time. It's a quaint lounge with a staff that is very friendly and attentive. Guys makes a fantastic Jazz Lounge. A great place for a chill drink or to meet up with friends.
Quaint. Located in Roscoe Chicken a ND Waffles.
It is closed now But doesn’t bother to say that on its website
It was a pleasant surprise in my favorite part of Long Beach.
Absolutely love it. Great atmosphere.
The music was great, the service was great, but the lighting for the stage needs improvement
Lounge is a fun and intimate place to watch bands and have good food and drink.
Some of the greats come through the doors here. Music legend performing Jazz music. You never know who you might find. Cocktails are served and it has a real intimate atmosphere . If you get hungry, there is some good home cooking just across the way (same building) at Roscoe's chicken and waffle. When I was there it was a special night and the music was some of the best I've ever heard. Afterwards I went next door and ordered the chicken and waffle combo with greens too. When you're eating there is no talking because you just want to enjoy the delicious food.
You can eat, and still have a real good time.
Everyone was Outstanding and Friendly with Beautiful Smiles💗💓💖
I didn't eat but I have ate there before. The manager customer service was awsome...Now, keep in mind I was on the lounge side...I went to listen to the live blues singers....
Great atmosphere, great music!
Nice place to get together. Parking is bad. This is Long Beach. But nice spot can smoke outside and of course order from roscoes!
Great place. Small, comfortable, great music!
This place is world famous and for a reason! It has amazing live music and and very chill vibe. Drinks are strong and good too!
Great place to eat traditional chicken & waffles and enjoy live jazz afterwards. Great musicians and nice atmosphere. Will visit again!
It was Totally Awesome, I went There with My Husband and My Friend From Italy, I Had a Wonderful Time Singing and Dancing, and The Food at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles was Great...😊❤
Excellent place to go for smooth jazz and r&b. Drink prices are reasonable and if you get hungry roscoes is right next door. Great deal you can't beat it!!
Loved the jazz on Saturday night!!! Drinks were delicious and prices were reasonable.
I had been looking forward to finding a jazz/blues bar on my holidays, and when I saw the Seabird/Roscoes I thought we had to try it.. and we were not disappointed! We arrived by chance on Slims Blues night, and ended up staying for hours. It was a brilliant night of music, incredibly talented people, the crowd was friendly and whole atmosphere was warm and welcoming. It's a local bar, with a genuine feel to it, and I hope it stays this way for a long time.
I wish I lived next door and could go back every day!
Also the food next door in Roscoes is brilliant! I'm a vegetarian but found there was plenty of sides options, and my friend had the traditional chicken and waffles and LOVED it.
Great jazz at this establishment small and intimate room with drink service only
Went to Roscoes chicken and waffles it was nice ... very clean friendly staff chicken was good waffles also very tasty.... the price was good to.... bought a T Shirt souvenir awesome experience
Amazing place. Drinks are wonderful and at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is nice and calm especially with the jazz in the background.
Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles with giant mimosas and bloody Mary's. Food was delicious and drinks good.
Great Bar Tenders!! Excellent Service Met the Owner "Tony" was really nice great vibe!!
It was nice.. The staff is really friendly, didn't care 4 the eggs, not enough cheese, the onions was cut 2 big, the drinks was good, but not $14 worth..
OMG there pancakes are so good and buttery
There chicken is cooked well it juicy and and plesent to eat
Drinks are too high food is moderate servers are nice this place could be a gold mine owner is too tight to see it not about profit
First time here and it was really good. Will be coming back for more later this week.
When the Jazz Angels are there & I'm around I must go.
Great mimosas! The man in charge is cheap and tacky though. Chastising the bar staff out loud about using too much liquor in drinks in front of customers
Southside slim is a great show with many entertainers that are top notch musicians and singers as well as slim himself who is a legend.
A nice spot to chill on a Friday night and listen to some good jazz and blues
Terrible show. It wasn't even jazz. It was the blues. To each his own.
$7. Cover $16.50 drink. $14. Three chicken wing, grits,egg and bisquit breakfast. 80yr old performer and, birthday . other talent just o.k. The Band ,however was smokin !
Felt safe tho. Parked in lot .
Emma (the greeter at the door) and our server were AMAZING!!! They were a big part as to why we had such a great time. It was Couples Night Out for us and this venue was PERFECT!!! It was intimate but interactive. We had a blast!!
Popped in here after a meal from Roscoes. We thoroughly enjoyed the funky jazz music being played that night. Not sure how it is on other nights, but this band was killing it with some super sick jazz funk songs. As for the venue itself, it's a lounge type of place which makes for a comfortable and easy place to kick back and soak in some awesome live jazz music.
You can't go wrong with Chicken/Waffles & Jazz!
The jazz was awesome this last Saturday night, the crowd was lively and diverse. I highly recommend this place especially because there are 5-6 great restaurants within a block to choose from prior.
Good food and great music!
Love coming hear for live jazz and good vibes. The staff are always so friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced. Plus, Roscoe's is RIGHT NEXT DOOR!!!! Nothing beats great jazz, good drinks, and amazing food.
Awesome live music and good ole' Roscoe's chicken was a winning combination. Performer Don "The 1" Bell and his band were impressive!!!
This, and any future review of this place, should be along these lines:
