OK these are my 2 favorite things and my Birthday is Sat.
As a native of L.A. I have never been and thought hmmmm
Any feedback ?
Last year I treated myself and went to SAAM's @ the Bazzar mmmmmm
Nothing great, but you hear about it so much that it's one of those things that some folks have to try (often out-of-towners asking to go). FWIW, the H'wood location (church women in Sunday hats; fun ambiance) is nicer than the LA spot (greasy Denny's).
These are a bit dated, but might help:

roscoes is meh in my book. the last time i went (@ 2yrs ago), the chicken pieces were so small i swore it was a pigeon.
Having recently been for the first time in several years, I was mostly unimpressed. The chicken was good, not great but good. The mac & cheese was not good at all. It was flavorless and mushy. The waffles are pretty good. The greens were good. Still, I think you can do a lot better in a lot of other places around town. Just look at the very long, regularly added to, thread on the best fried chicken in town.
I've never had the mac and cheese at Pann's but I feel like the Chicken and Waffles is just overall a different style... if someone wanted Roscoe's and I took them to Pann's, they'd be mad that it's not Roscoe's.
That said I'd rather go to Pann's than Roscoe's. =)
Anyway, I only like Roscoe's waffle. I'm not a big fan of their chicken. I usually get mac and cheese for the texture, since it's lacking in flavor IMO.
