As befitting an eatery that started in the Southland, Roscoe’s has also been referenced in numerous films, television and music. The late rapper Notorious B.I.G. name-checks the chain in his song “Going back to Cali.” Samuel L.

Roscoe's has been dishing up its chicken-and-waffle combos since 1975, along with Southern staples such as grits, biscuits and cornbread.
