Make sure to get here early as the line gets very long but its worth the wait. Pretty much anything you get here will be outstanding. Fried Chicken you can't go wrong, Ox Tails YUMMY and the ribs are to die for. The cheesiest Mac & Cheese you'll ever find.

Great food, great people. My Mom loves country cooking. I took her a plate a couple of times and both times she loved it. I agree with her. I took a peach cobbler to share the first time and only got a few bites it was so good she ate it all. So next time I made sure to buy... More

The line gets long. Telltale clue it's worth the wait. The smothered pork cops were piled on top of the rice with plenty of brown gravy. The Mac n cheese was extra cheesy and yams were just the right sweetness. A side of cornbread that was so moist it falls apart as a prelude to the Peach cobbler. Don't think... More

If you want to try some real southern food, this is the place for you. There is not only fried chicken but baked chicken that is full of flavor and juiciness! My husband likes the ox tails which come with a side of yellow rice. The vegetable sides are typically southern and seasoned with bacon. Cornbread rounds out your meal... More

Myself and 12 coworkers happened across the "soul bistro" while staying at a local hotel for work. Before we even got inside the building we were greeted by the smell of southern fried chicken. Once inside the hostess explained that this was cafeteria style food and we selected an entree and 2 sides, before we got to the selection of... More

My family and I visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the food is plentiful and delicious! Some of us had Fried Chicken and others had Fried Basa Fish. They we're both excellent! The veggies were wonderful and the corn bread is moist and delicious! I highly recommend visiting here!

Anytime I'm passing through Jacksonville, I make it a point to stop at one of the Potter's House locations. You will not be disappointed! The best soul food and reasonable prices.

I've eaten here many times, and every time has been a hit. The food is always fresh, and the staff is very nice. The menu changes day to day so call ahead if you want something specific.
