There's nothing soulful about their food. First of all, the place is very small therefore it took almost a half hour to get a table. And once we ordered our food, it took another half hour for the food to arrive. The wait would've been...More

The wait was a lot longer than expected but the food was great. The fried cabbage with bacon and the cornbread were by far the best I've had in a long time. It's best to call in an order because of the wait.

The place is a dump and the food is overpriced! Sanitation doesn't seem to exist here...filthy dishes, workers on their cell phone while preparing your food,... Food's tasty but not recommended if you're looking for something healthy.
