Time Out says

You can find better chicken in LA, and better waffles—but for both under one roof, Roscoe's is king. The Hollywood branch is the fanciest.

I don't care who you are: I will convert you into a Roscoe's chicken and waffles fan. Even President Obama indulges in LA's (arguably) most iconic dish while in town. There is a menu item named after him! Trust me, the combination of chicken and waffles initially does sound off-putting, but God it is heart-stopping in the absolute best way possible.

I try to introduce Roscoe's to as many out-of-town visitors as humanly possible and most, despite initial hesitation, are receptive to that idea. For first timers, I recommend the Carol B. Special: a juicy, hearty piece or two of fried chicken alongside a perfectly light and crisp waffle. It's truly the ultimate savory meets sweet meets ... maple syrup (more sweet). So long as you've prepared your heartburn medication and don't mind carrying around an adorable little food baby for the next 48 hours, this meal will leave the hungriest of hungry eaters uber satisfied.

Rocoe's put the chicken and waffle combo on the map!  Their waffles are their own recipe.  They have a hint of cinnamon and are soft with a crunch.  The chicken wings are fried to perfection.  They also have really good side dishes like mac and cheese and greens.   Tastes like somebody's Grandma from the South is in the kitchen cooking!  And don't forget to wash it down with their Sunset beverage which is lemonade and fruit punch!
