Barack Obama

Honored with Fried

Chicken and Waffles

EXCLUSIVE

The Obama special at Roscoes Chicken and Waffles
Barack Obama has just become the first sitting President in American history to have a menu item named after him at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles -- talk about a historic week!!

The legendary chicken joint officially renamed a menu item after Obama after the Commander-In-Chief chowed down on the famous 3-wing "Country Boy" special back in October.

At the time, the owners claimed they would NOT rename the item after Obama ... in fairness to Reagan and Nixon, who were also regulars ... but don't have any items named after them.

Guess the Roscoe's people had a change of heart ... 'cause the Country Boy is OUT and "Obama's Special" is in ... for $8.90.

Yes they did.

For those saying it's racist. George Bush have and airport named after him. JFK has one as well. President Obama have a 8.40 dish named after him. Really is it that important that we make this about race. I mean by them changing the name on the menu has anyone not gotten paid from their job? If you are still getting paid why is this a big issue? Good grief...

The Obama special... you pay for your food, but you have to give it to someone else.

Been there, tried the Chicken & Waffle plate. Not bad. The staff is pleasant and the restaurant is clean in the Hollywood area.

All tables in my area were helped by different servers, and they all seemed like they just walked on the street and put on a waitress outfit. Everyone got their order messed up and waited forever in the not so busy restaurant to have their order taken. The host was busy chatting way too long with friends, and never informs a server they have a new table. I guess because they are busy, they don't need better customer service skills.

You'd think our Glorious Fuhrer would appreciate a freshly roasted puppy. Or perhaps some borscht and vodka. He's an evil communist bastard, get it?

And a watermelon smoothie to wash down the bad taste of Oblamya's policies. Policies and food will have you sitting on the pot for days.
