It only took President Obama one high-profile visit to the legendary Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles restaurant in Los Angeles last fall to get his own menu item named after him. Back in October of 2011 the president ate the famous 3-wing “Country Boy” special. It’s now on the menu with the name “Obama’s Special” for $8.90. TMZ has the story:
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.
