This probably sounds like a weird recommendation if you aren’t from around here: fried chicken served with waffles isn’t your usual fare. But Roscoe’s – all of its various restaurants around town – are veritable institutions, and will take your palate to heavenly places it didn’t realise it wanted to go. This is soul food – spicy, messy, fattening, straightforward, and utterly comforting. The menu has plenty more to choose from than the aforementioned fowl and fluffy breakfast fare – think heart-stopping breakfasts, mac and cheese, candied yams, smothered potatoes, greens – but don’t stop in unless you’re going to take advantage of the house specialty. Sweet potato pie for dessert is never a bad idea, is it?
