great pork chops with traditional side dishes, good portions always manage to bring some home. I say it is for the dogs...it is not!

Sorry no Photos. I ate the great food too quickly. I ordered fried pork chops, greens, & mac and cheese. I got two giant delicious pork chops, yummy greens and creamy mac & cheese, corn bread & "red" kool aid. All perfect. Service was friendly, and even the customers were friendly and said Happy New Year. I didn't give it... More

Owner greeted my friend (who is a regular) at the door as they were "closing" at 9:00 p.m. She graciously let us order. We noticed their warmth & Christian ethics! The "soul" food was hot & delicious - especially their yams. The chicken fried steak came with a generous portion of rice & brown gravy, plus healthy collared greens and... More

Very good fried chicken, which is hard to find in Vallejo. The side dishes were just fair (they were out of lima beans and pinto beans). But you put up with weak side dishes just to get the chicken.

OK my wife and I ate here for the first time and fell in love with the place. I researched this place before our trip to Vallejo and I'm glad I did. The fried chicken was absolutely great. Pan fried in cast iron skillets, just like grandma cooked it. The sides were equally good. I will only be here for... More

Great little place, even loved the kitchen banter. We shared barbecue beef and ribs, came with collared greens and sweet potatoes that was as yummy as pumpkin pie. Added a fried chicken breast and couldn't finish the meal. Great eating.
