The Staff, Food & Desserts are excellent, especially the pies & banana pudding to die for. Would highly recommend trying this establishment. The corn bread was the best I ever had as was the sweet potato pie. Will definitely go there again.

Ox tails, fried cat fish, salmon patties, and fried chicken. Everything was great. Sides were even better. Just good SOUL Food! You can take kids of all ages and your children will find something to eat that they really like.
