This is a must go if you are in the area. Shawn and team took awesome care of us. The fried chicken was incredible and the other food we had within our group was just as good. I would recommend this for any and all size groups, and families. Atmosphere isn't a luxury dining experience, but it's good "soul food";... More

Yes, I said it's the best fried chicken; even better than M&M Soul Food in Vegas. I have only been here a few times, but any time I am visiting my sister in Charlotte I will go out of my way to stop here. The first time we stopped here it was based on the reviews, and the reviews were... More

The food is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful in assisting us in figuring out the various options and what to order. There are many different size plates and even a veggie option. The food is already prepared and ready to serve as you go through the line-but not overcooked and steamed out. It is hot and... More

I came here after a funeral (at which the food was delicious) craving more Southern soul food before heading back to the West coast... and it was just "okay"! I had just had some really great macaroni and cheese at the funeral and so I was quite disappointed when I got back to my hotel and dipped into the Mac... More

This was my first real experience eating Soul Food. I liked the fact that they have small and large sized orders. We ordered 2 small plates...one with the fried catfish which was freshly made to order, along with mac and cheese, yams and cornbread with ice tea. The other plate was small veggie that came with 3 sides...mac and cheese,... More

Location near airport in shopping center. Order food at buffet line, pay, dine in, unlimited drinks. All meals include a drink with one or two meats and two vegetables. Yams (sweet potatoes) are the best and a must have. Not unusual to see the owner working hard and greeting you. TVs to view and an outside patio.
