It's also worth noting that the food at Roscoe's is very good, assuming you like soul food
. Even though the menu is fairly limited, the things they do make, they make very well. The fried chicken
on the outside, moist
on the inside, and not at all raw at the bone. Given the size of the breasts and thighs
, this is no mean feat. There are no puny, undersized pieces like at KFC
The sides are of similarly high quality. The greens and smothered potatoes are excellent and the hot water corn bread should not be missed. The waffles are thin enough to be a side as opposed to a main course. The syrup is a specific blend of cane and maple syrups that's mixed in house and not for sale elsewhere, so it's actually more exclusive than that $10.00 a pint stuff you can order from LL Bean.
Roscoe's is also noteworthy for providing ample portions of soul food at reasonable prices. The Scoe's Special #2 is a bellyful for an average sized person.
Only thing I don't like about it is the wait. On a Saturday night you might wait for forty-five minutes for a table. On Sunday afternoon it could be twice that.
