One of my favorite places to eat in downtown Oakland. The food is yummy and the bar has multiple flatscreen t.v.'s so you can catch your game while u dine. If you never had chicken and waffles, check them out!

From Our Editors

Originally born as a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles franchise, Home of Chicken and Waffles has since been reimagined as an upscale '60s-themed diner with a full bar of specialty cocktails to complement the menu of hearty comfort fare. As chefs load Southern-style or gravy-smothered chicken onto plates next to signature waffles, Motown grooves fill the dining room—unless it's Sunday, when gospel music reigns. Homestyle sides such as grits, greens, and candied yams trim plates of crispy chicken. The kitchen prides itself on using fresh ingredients—real milk and cheese make the mac 'n' cheese creamy, and real beans prove tastier than holographic beans. Every dish is named after a member of the owner's family, who gaze down on patrons from vibrant portraits behind the counter.
