Good Southern Cooking

I took my co-workers out for lunch and they recommended this place. Food is actually very good, and reasonably priced. This is NOT the place to come if you're trying to diet (though they will prepare things in a healthy way). What we all had, everyone seemed to enjoy thoroughly! The place was... read more

The gumbo and catfish were as good as I have had in New Orleans. I would definitely recommend this establishment even if the srevice was a bit slow.

This place has great Cajun food and desserts . The Seafood Platter consist of Basa Fish or Catfish, plus shrimp and oysters deep fried in cornmeal and believe me it is GREAT . You also get hushpuppies . They also have great desserts

First time ever being there and to me, you have to be friends with these people to get fed. Don't know why I allowed myself to wait these two hours but we left hungry because we never got served. Sweet tea was good but that's all I can tell you because I never got to eat. Poor management and very... More

Chez Soul makes good on the promise in its name. I particularly love the ribs, but I've enjoyed every single dish I've ever had there. The place isn't fancy, but the food is good!

Heard about this food and finally tried it, great menu, hard to decide what to try. So far in our three visits and takeout orders we have had okra, catfish, chicken, ribs ,greens and peach cobbler and liked it all.

The only way to eat Okra is fried and that's the way you get in here. Fried chicken, catfish, BBQ, baked beans,and more down home Southern style.

Only drawback, you need plenty of time to wait for your food unless you call in your order! We always call ahead and order and eat there. Their fried chicken and shrimp po-boys are the best...all of their sides are great also...Clean and attractive restaurant. Service is good except for the time...The have also catered for me and have done... More
