Ordered barbecue chicken w/ Mac & cheese candied yams and a side order of whiting. Unfortunately I only enjoyed the corn bread everything else didn’t do it for me. However that’s just my experience! Give a try maybe you will have better luck than me.

I’ve been coming here for a few years now the place needs a MAJOR deep clean it smells like piss in the foyer. I love the food but can’t help but think of the overall cleanliness. Get all hands on deck and scrub everything down and get a good scent going.

We got one turkey wing dinner and one frid chicken dinner . The Mac and cheese was not good at all. Not sure what season or cheese they use. But I didn't enjoy it at all. The potatoes salad was okay not great but eat able unlike Mac and cheese. Turkey wing was not fresh at all. Fried chicken was okay didn't like the season very much. Yams was pretty good. However will not be returning back for a second time.

I ordered via Uber eats.It didn’t charge my card. I attempted to call this restaurant directly several times. It rang once then call terminated. When I tried the alternate # listed, busy signal for an hour.This is SO UNACCEPTABLE‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️I’d LOVE to support our own BUT this is poor service.And I had my heart set on soul food.Happy Mother’s Day to me ???

I went and got the baked turkey wings dinner with the baked Mac and yams and my partner got the fried chicken with Mac and yams . The fried chicken was fried fresh and very delicious.. and the turkey wings were tender and nicely seasoned .. but my sides were not so good.. the Mac was over cooked and had no taste at all ... and the yams didn’t taste like they were cut fresh .. I will try again one day .. and maybe get the potato salad ....oh yeah I almost forgot we both had fried whiting sandwiches !!! And those were cooked to perfection. Definitely freshly made .

The portions are d for the price they charge. The food quality had gone down. No I rate it at hit or miss. The customer service has never been there strong pointI hope they get it together, there are not alot if soul food restaurants I would like to continue to support them.

Attempted to order from this place via Uber Eats app only for these morons to cancel my order an hour later without explanation. I will never attempt to order from these people again.

I’m ready to say they seriously have the best fried whiting I’ve ever had. I’ve ordered whiting from them 3 or 4 times and it’s the same good taste and quality every time. I just finished eating a piece and had to write this review right after. Btw the manager Mark is a gem! Always polite. Always helpful.

First time going Thought it would be a nice place to get some soul food, the food looked decent but I have to admit I don’t it wast worth what I paid for. I’d recommend the fried fish and chicken , the Mac and collards needed some work, corn bread was spot on but definitely over priced.

Quality service, quality food, black owned, clean, and they make collard greens without meat which is good for me due to the fact me being vegetarian. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

This was my 1st time ordering and I am beyond pleased as well as full! We had Whiting, Tilapia, Shrimp, Baked Turkey Wings and Fried Chicken Wings, Fries, Sweet Potatos, Cornbread and Cake. OMG! Everything was delicious. The servings are.huge. My order was ready for pickup at the designated time and was hot when we got it home. I highly recommend this restaurant. I plan on them catering a birthday party very soon. Can't wait for them to reopen for eat-in.


For my first time going I ordered a few things to try out. They did not disappoint! The whiting was fried to perfection, the chicken and waffle was tasty, and the black eyed peas reminded me of home. I'd share pics, but I ate it all. ?

This place is overpriced and the service is mediocre, Me and my friends tried to get 3 Separate Dinner specials and we asked why the dinner platters only bring 3 wings, Like really ? 3 Wings ???? everywhere else serves 4 wings, The waitress said she told the Manager our concerns, But not only did he refuse to serve us, he didnt even accommodate our food request Even after trying to spend $75 in his establishment.I would never come here again and encourage others to eat elsewhere.
