Disneyland and Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles to Be Next Door Neighbors

Move over Donald, Mickey’s best new avian friend comes deep fried with a side of syrup.

Adding to the list of iconic eats moving to the neighborhood, Los Angeles-based chain Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles is primed to open its first Orange County location just two blocks away from the Disneyland resort in Anaheim, California.

According to Mohammad Jalilian, a Roscoe’s construction manager, this new location will be the largest of the chain’s six and might even be taking some design cues from its more theatrical neighbor. When it opens “it will be themed as a Southern plantation,” he explained, complete with an “outdoor street-level patio, as well as a second-story French Colonial veranda.”

He also told the OC Register that Roscoe’s is currently looking to expand to other cities including San Diego, and that the Orange County location should be open within the next three months.

OC foodies, rejoice.

NBA Star Shows His Solid Ink Game with a Roscoe’s Tattoo

While Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks was showing off his freshly inked “Legend” tattoo on Instagram, it revealed an awesome tattoo below it, paying tribute to a legendary restaurant in Southern California.

Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, the tasty L.A. based chicken joint, inspires many upon eating its succulent chicken smothered in gravy, but not many can say they were as inspired as Jennings.

Jennings was born and raised in Compton, California, so it’s fitting that he honored the local restaurant in this way.

Many people can be seen walking around Southern California wearing a Roscoe’s t-shirt, but had anyone else ever thought about how much more awesome it would be to get the logo tatted on them?

A lot of NBA players have bible verses inscribed on their arms, or a portrait of their kids, but this tattoo is probably a first among the world’s most elite basketball players. Oh, yeah, his “Legend” tattoo is nice too.

The food potential for Instagram is endless.

I might just be inspired enough to get a Buffalo Wild Wings logo on my neck.
