Very average soul food that I was very disappointed with. Buffet style eating even added to the average experience that was unfortunate.

This place is a jewel. The food is great and the price is right. When you want something quick and easy this is where you go. Everything is good. I highly recommend it.

Yummy food from the Caribbean. Excellent food, good prices, large portions. Check out their menu. There are tables there but most people go for take-out. The line gets extremely long during lunch. It is even slow when you call in an order. There is a lot of staff. They work fast but a lot of people lot it.
