Roscos Chicken & Waffles

I will be having dinner at the Long Beach location soon. Has anyone ever had the food at this place, and if so would you recommend it?
Also is there a particular item on the menu that you would say is a must have?
I haven't been in a while, but I've also only been to the Long Beach location.
I went for the basic Chicken and Waffle combo.
Washed it down with a "Sunset" (half orange juice/half lemonade) or was it called a "Sunrise"?
People will probably tell you that it's not as good as the hype makes it out to be...but just go and see for yourself.
I did and I liked it.
I do enjoy it -- they make far better waffles than I do. Theirs are tender and chewy, whereas mine tend to come out crisp. I'd like to figure out what the difference is, but that's for another board!
I usually get the Karen C. special, which is 1 chicken breast and 1 waffle. I've also had their smothered potatoes, which were lovely on a cold day. Not tempting in this weather, though. They heat up their maple syrup, which is a nice touch.
Even if you wouldn't normally, order chicken thighs rather than breasts; the breasts get dry.
I like both their chicken and their waffles okay; not into the gravy at all. You wouldn't go there for a salad, either, and the corn cakes are the kind that are very hard.
There's no ambiance and the service runs from lackidaisical to downright frustrating.
I have a friend who goes there and orders a triple order of eggs & onions. The scrambled eggs are creamy and I think the dish also has cheese in it. The biscuits are good too.
