So flavorful, not greasy or heavy -- just delicious! And the sides are great too, especially the black eyed peas, greens, cabbace, potato salad, sweet potatoes, and corn bread. Charles cares, and you can tell with every bite.

Best fried chicken in NYC... love the pulled pork too. Plus Charles himself is a great guy.. once when we got takeout they forgot to give us our okra. Charles himself delivered it to our apartment in Harlem!

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
