Went there for lunch, and loved the pork ribs, slaw, cornbread and sweet tea! Our server was prompt and professional, which made our lunch a great experience! Their deviled eggs were especially good! Can’t wait to return back!

Good food for a quick comfortable dinner before a show. Ribs were great, however service a little slow.

Service very friendly but if you have been to the locations in Harlem or Syracuse, Newark doesn’t hold a candle to them. Syracuse salted potatoes are available at the other locations, but not here. Cornbread is also better at other places. Many of the selections...More
