Food is BUSSIN!!!!! One of the best in Newark. Things I’ve triedShrimp and gritsCornbreadFried whitingOmeletteCreamy gritsFried chickenStuffed flounder (my favorite)Garlic string bean(favorite side)Mac and cheeseCrab cakesJerk salmonAll 10/10 they are also very nice. Wish they would be open on weekdays

The food is not bad . Their greens are always too salty , but the macaroni and fried chicken is decent . The wings are salty too . Plus they made me wait 2 hours for my order cause the girl " didn't know " I called back to fix something and they kept lying and said it was almost ready . And the food was not hot like they claimed it was going to be after all that time . So no I never went back and I won't

While the Kettle Fried Chicken was fried well, it severely lacks salt and seasoning. The Pollo Guisado was over cooked and it was simply uneatable. The Hoppin’ John was missing flavor, the corn came from a can, the rice was eh, and the cornbread was burnt at the bottom that it should have never made it for sale. The highlights were the Baked Mac N’ Cheese, the Garlic & Herb Sauce and the portion size and packaging is on point but it didn’t matter as I couldn’t full review
