Rated 4 out of 5 by Good food, nice staff, happy with our experience Aug 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Food was amazing and staff was very friendly. Aug 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waited 45 minutes for food. The turkey wings were full of red pepper flakes and very spicy. The meatloaf had too much filler and was dry and bland. The green beans were bland. The refrigerator which held the beverages was not plugged in and beverages (bottled water, canned sodas) were hot. My friend who order shrimp & grits said the grits were sweet. People should be able to choose if they want spicy food. They can always add hot sauce. The turkey wings were not advertised as spicy but they were so spicy I could not eat. This was not worth my $29.00 Aug 4, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service! Although we had a pretty large party, we were able to sit and dine rather quickly. The food took a little bit of time to come out, but was well worth the wait! Jul 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Real Soul Food in a funky & really friendly atmosphere. Would also be an excellent takeout option. Upstairs dining room not handicapped accessible. Cornbread & yams were must have sides! All the entrees we tried were excellent with large portions. May 17, 2014
