"Roscoe's" is the true flavored story of what happens when Clyde Coltrane, a numbers runner with an appetite for adventure, is run out of New York by police. With nowhere else to go, he comes to Los Angeles to save a friend from a life threatening debt with the mafia. But it's a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire when efforts to pay back the mob are botched, and Clyde must use his savvy to turn a failing restaurant into a booming business that can pay back the money. The question is can they succeed before they're cooked. To do it, Roscoe and Clyde face one high-jinx caper after another while at the same time developing a recipe for chicken and waffles that will earn them fame and fortune.
