It’s National Waffle Day!
I’m going to point out that I was down with Roscoe’s House of Chicken n’ Waffles before everyone on the internet knew about Chicken n’ Waffles. Here’s an old-school internet page I created back around 1996 about Roscoe’s and it was pretty much the only online reference to Roscoe’s anywhere. Now, in these days of modern times, everyone has chicken and waffles; even IHOP (although these look nasty.)
Here’s a commercial for Roscoe’s. I don’t understand this commercial. It’s weird. But you DO get to see some real chicken n’ waffles. I’ve eaten them from coast to coast. From the Al Sharpton at Amy Ruth’s in Harlem to Gladys and Ron’s in Atlanta to the Quail n’ Waffles at The Public House in Las Vegas to the fake Roscoe’s in Oakland — and the real Roscoe’s is still the best.
