If you are looking for the taste of real southern cooking, you will not go wrong at this place. I always go on Sundays after the church crowd. My dish is the fried fish and any sides. Although the corn and cabbage is a killer combo for me. We always fall for the sweet potato pie. Its a must try

Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't get great soul food in the north! This place is a slice of southern states sitting right between Maryland and DC. The smothered pork chops are so good you will find yourself sucking on the bone. The sweet potatoes are just like your grandma would make at Thanksgiving and the peach... More

I searched for flavor in...the chitterlings, the cornbread, the mac & cheese (found oil at the bottom) and collard greens. None. Pretty disappointed. Portion sizes were awesome!

Right off 495 (in DC) The food at Henry's is sooo good. You will have to take a nap when you done eating. Don't forget the sweet potato pie.
