On her last trip to Los Angeles, a good friend of mine from Chicago said she had two goals: See the Hollywood sign and visit Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, neither of which she was able to do. I’m proud to say we were able to do both on what was an unusually smog-free Saturday.
This was my first visit to Roscoe’s, and I think my arteries are still recovering from my #13 combo. (The #13 being a giant fried chicken breast smothered in gravy and onions, with two gigantic waffles on the side.) We went to the Pico and La Brea restaurant, although there seem to be three or four other locations. I’m not sure which is the original. (I also hear Roscoe’s hosts jazz jam sessions … if anyone knows about these, please drop me a line in the comments box.)
I wasn’t planning to post about my Roscoe’s-induced gluttony, but then I stumbled across this video clip of Snoop Dogg and Larry King dining a deux at Roscoe’s. What can I say? It’s pretty fantastic.
I tend to agree with YouTube commenter
YoUrShAdOwW, who says "haha gotta love snoop, he is like the coolest man on the planet!" I also second videopirate, who points out "Roscoe’s is great! Especially if you have the munchies. They give you a
lot food for the money. Hmmm, Snoop eats there a lot, interesting."
