Roscoe's Famous Deli

As you step inside, you feel like you’ve just walked into a roadside diner, only a little more upscale and a lot cleaner. Motorcycles, road signs and other automotive paraphernalia adorn the room.

Chino Hills is the latest outpost of this chain, with the flagship located in Fullerton. For a deli, however, the menu is rather limited as far as the selection of sandwiches go. If you are a meat lover though, this is the place for you. All of their sandwiches come with 9 ounces of meat and a choice of one side.

The Italian Beef Sandwich, come with layers of thin, juicy slices of seasoned beef topped with Mozzarella cheese and pickled peppers and carrots. The menu says it comes on a French Roll, but it’s more like an Amoroso Roll. A side of au jus comes with the sandwich for your dunking pleasure.

The Curly Fries are the same ones you’d find in any other restaurant. Although these are some of my favorite types of fries, this version would have been much better if they were hotter and crisper. Nothing seems to ruin fries more than having them lukewarm and soggy.

While Roscoe’s is a more than decent choice, it doesn’t compare to the better deli’s in the Southern California area.

I really like the sandwiches here, especially if you're a meat lover.

Veronica,

Yeah, they do really pile the meat on here. Carnivore paradise.

No relation to the chicken & waffles place, right?

CP,

You're right, no relation to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. Funny you say that. When they were building the place I saw the Roscoe's sign and said to myself, "This is a strange place for Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles."
