“The place is a dump and the food is...”
Reviewed 23 July 2010

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.

“You haven't lived till you taste the fried chicken at Mom's Soul Food!”
Reviewed 24 December 2009

When I initially visited this restaurant I wasn't too sure about the service and it was hella hot inside...but since returning everything has improved 100%. They now have cold AC, new flat screens with great movies playing and the new girls waitressing are friendly and attentive! There is a homey feel now that is inviting and...you will dream of the fried chicken which is the BEST fried chicken I've ever tasted!!

The food is off the hook with favorite sides like home made mac and cheese, collard greens, fried okra, and corn bread! And you have to top it off with the lemonade because it tastes the way lemonade is supposed to! They also have kid's entrees and banana pudding that will make your mouth water. It is definitely worth a little bit of a drive...and psst lemme tell you...the men who cook this tasty grub are equally delicious to look at.

“I love the food...but the waiter was sloooowwwwwww!”
Reviewed 4 November 2009

We sat down at the new location on Kam and it took forever just to get a drink...I asked over and over...they finally served our food before we even got our drinks...then the your guy who was our waiter just stared at me...okay, we start to eat...food was heaven! Corn bread, fried shrimp - better than heaven! Still, no drinks...I finally asked the waitress...then the guy gave me attitude...he turned around to take someone else's order...still, no drinks. At least we had water when we were seated - so it is not like there was a drought or anything...The waitress apologized and apologized...still, no drink...

I really liked the people (except for the young guy waiter, who HAD to be someone's nephew or cousin...) evven the chef came out and talked to us...I am telling you - it was better than my mama's food! Please don't tell her I said that.
