The food was amazing. Everything from the main course to the dessert was exceptional. The time it took to be seated was too long compared to the actual available seating. I think because of the day of the week (Sunday), they may have had to juggle in house and take out customers simultaneously. Or, perhaps they were short staffed. All... More

Think fried catfish or chicken, crayfish ettoufee, and the like, all a la New Orleans and environs. If you like that kind of soul food, and we do, this is a destination for you. The largish dining room was packed with tablefuls of mainly African Americans, and the staff are about 95% African Americans (a good sign, since this segment... More

Family atmosphere. Great food, good people. Get there early or you won't get a seat. Great for groups or individual. Just good old down home cooking!

Great food, made fresh, so the wait may be a little long. Only draw back, tight eating space. The food portions are large, so prepare to take some HOME!

The food here is really good, but I ordered Ox tails and around the bone they were perfect but in the inside it was freezing cold. I don't like to eat Ox tails re heated, I thought they were freshly cooked. I didn't complain about it, I just haven't returned since.

As a soul food place, this is all Fairfield has to offer, and the food is decent, if somewhat over priced. If you dont know how to cook soul food, you'll love it.

Great food and a very friendly and efficient staff. Weren't really sure what to expect with a southern cuisine menu, but we were really happy with our decision to try it. The food was great and there was plenty of it.

We ordered 3 lunch specials and 2 kids meals. The bbq ribs were amazing but it was a small portion for lunch. The fried chicken was the best I've had by far, incredibly moist and the skin had a great flavor. The fried catfish is was delicious too! Very moist! The food was a hit with my 2 picky children,...

I enjoy the food every time I go, my favorite is the smothered fried pork chops, yams and fish and chicken. I encourage every one throughout California to come out and enjoy the southern style cooking you want be disappointed, even though this restaurant is in Cali, I think the south would appreciate the taste, The atmosphere is very pleasant...
