"Chiken and waffle is a country classic. The chicken is shredded or torn and cooked in gravy then poured over waffles. It’s hearty and filling and inexpensive."

"That's the way it's prepared in PA Dutch country. We had it a lot when I was a kid."

That describes the traditional southern "chicken and biscuits" (by the way, there is a reference to it in the stage version of the musical "Hairspray" - it's Edna's craving for this dish that leads her to visit North Ave (a traditionally african-american section of Baltimore), where she sees Tracey). I don't see how it defers in any substantive way from creamed chipped-beef on toast, except that waffles catch more of the gravy.

However, judging by Roscoe's menu (see: http://www.roscoeschickenandwaffles.com/) the Country Boy is fried chicken with a choice of a side (waffle or potato salad or French Fries). The waffle is simply a starch side dish - not all that unlike a biscuit or cornbread (other traditional southern accompaniments to fried chicken).
