Default Roscoe's vs. Phillipe's

Just saw this in my FB feed and thought of the monthly LAX meets.

Been there a few times. It's not near LAX Range.

They can get really really crowded. Supposedly the origin of French Dip sandwich. I love their mustard.

How in the world did chicken and waffles lose that poll?! To a french dip sandwich no less!

What next dog and cats living together?

And just because it's Sunday... Go Niners! Beat them Seahawks.

I've been during lunch rushes and before Dodger games, and I've never had to wait that long. Also know that it's not a table service restaurant. You get into one of the several lines at the food counter and then go find a seat in the crowd once you have your food. Most I've ever waited in line is about 15 minutes. You may not always find a table all to yourself, but there's always room at the counters somewhere. Just got to squeeze in.

Interesting. The day I went the line looked like Disneyland. It was flowing out the door. Maybe I just went on the wrong day.

About 7:10 to 7:20 in the AM. That's when the beef is ready. No lines. Only Chinese dudes drinking coffee and reading the newspaper. Double dipped beef and a side of potato salad and custard for desert. Drizzle a little of the famed mustard on your there and you're set.

Roscoe's is great, I'll never talk smack on their chow. However, their pricing is ridiculous. If you don't go with their set up menu combos it gets expensive for standard fare like that. A breast and two small sides of greens is like 13 bucks and 9 of that is from the greens. Hey, it's a small cup and like my greens!!
Good stuff, that's why like a fiend I go back.

Philippes. I have never waited more than 15 minutes either. Don't get in a long line. Get in the short line.
Maybe you went on the day they rolled the price back to the original price, like $.39 or something.
Then the line was blocks long.
I have gone many times at noon, 12:30, 1, and didn't wait more than 15.
Look for the shortest line, usually the end toward the street.
And it is worth it. I mean, no, it is not fantastic!, nor awesome!, no, it is just bread and meat. But always fresh, try the cheesecake.
Coffee is still ... $.09. Still. That is the original price from 1929 or whatever.
Beef sandwich, ask for double dipped.
Cole slaw is good.
Pickled eggs. I never knew what kind of eggs they are, but they are purple.
Turtle eggs? Lizard eggs?

Both good, but can't do vs. As they are totally different. If you're hungry, u can't go wrong with either. These are some SoCal iconic eateries.

If your in the downtown LA area you should really try Eastside Italian Market.

Both are great. I have had mixed wait times at Phillipe's. Once it was walk right up to the counter, the other time it was a 30 minute wait. Well worth it though. Roscoe's is well... you cant beat chicken and waffles, it is just fantastic. Lots of great food places in LA. There is also Pink's hotdogs, and we can't forget Tommy's Burger. Both have chili, and any place with chili is fine by me!

IF someone were to want to do a off-schedule shoot (say between the week of the LAX shoot and the Burbank shoot) at LA Gun Club (ugh I know) and then a dinner at Phillipe's, then I'd have to say... I'M TOTALLY DOWN FOR THAT.
