Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

Being from Memphis, I miss and crave Southern food often (notably sweet tea, although I have not yet found a place out here that offers a good version). Instead of scouring the city for comfort food places, I tend to wait patiently for my next trip home. But, sometimes the spirit overtakes me too strongly and I must consume fried chicken immediately (okay, sometimes I buy it from the grocery store deli and then regret it instantly). Such was the case when I was deciding where to go for a Saturday lunch after waking up hangover-free but hungry. After I got Roscoe's in my head, I knew I had to have it and made a beeline for its Pico location.

The above picture is of the Country Boy: 3 fried chicken wings with a choice of waffle, potato salad or french fries (gotta have the waffle, come on now!). Every time I eat at Roscoe's, I order some combination of fried chicken and waffle, although they do have other items involving smothered chicken, eggs and a few other things I don't pay attention to.

FYI: Roscoe's isn't dirt cheap. My meal (with a Coke) was $11.40. I'm not saying that's terribly unreasonable, but just something to know if you've never been. Also, I don't think you can split checks.

I can't get my head around fried chicken on the same plate as waffles. I'd have to have potato salad and the waffles for dessert.

Hello Foodycat (again)! It is akin to the way sometimes your breakfast sausage gets syrup on it from pancakes or waffles and you get the savory sweet thing going on. I rather enjoy that, but some people do not!
