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

We were standing there thinking of what to do, and i said .. i wish there was a soul... 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.

Looking for a place that serves great tasting good, Henry's Soul Cafe in Oxon is the place! Our family tried the smothered pork chops, fried chicken wings, bbq chicken, and the bbq beef tips. For the sides we tried mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, buttered corn, rice with gravy, and potato wedges. Each meal also comes with cornbread. Once... More

I Love Henry's Soul Cafe. When I get a taste for some good old soul food and don't have to cook it myself, that's where I head off to. It's a Family run business and they are friendly and the place is ALWAYS packed especially after Sunday Morning Church. People call those orders in and go there and pick them... More

This review is on the Oxon Hill location. I love Henry's fried trout and smothered pork chops. They season them both well. Thefish was crispy and didn't have a lot of bones in it. The pork chops were meaty and well done. The portions are generous. I have purchased both of these meals and fed 4 people. Good job, Henry's...keep... More
