Soul food by whose's standards! The smothered pork chops was not smothered nor was the chicken. But uf you have never had real soul food you wouldn't know the difference. Potatoe salad was watery and taste like vinegar, the gumbo was too dark and the chicken was rubbery due to excessive warming. Never again, wiuldn't send my worse hater there!!!!!!

The collard greens had no seasoning. The cornbread muffin taste like it came out of a box off Jiffy. The Gumbo was the worst I ever tasted. Mu family is from the south. I wouldn't call anything o had Soul Food.

This place is insanely good and the service is awesome. You feel like you're at family's house. Great place for big parties. I wish there would have been a band that Saturday though! Even for a Vegetarian! I recommend HIGHLY:
HUSH PUPPIES, FRIED OKRA, Red Beans and Rice, Cajun Fries, and Coleslaw.
