Southern Cooking, variety of choices

This restaurant was pleasant from the entry and greeting of the host who shared with us his favorites. The server was attentive and pleasant but not overbearing. Many great choices! I enjoyed the beef brisket with sides - so many sounded so great. If I came again, I might just get a plate of... read more

I keep going back for the fried chicken but every entree has been very tasty. The sides are wonderful. I've been very impressed with the service. The staff pays attention to your needs such as refilling water, extra napkins. I always like to get away from chain restaurants and this is a winner for our area.

We excitedly went to this restaurant eagerly looking to grub on some down home soul food and were devastated by our experience. :( Our first contact with our waitress was her brandishing one index finger at us and rudely exclaiming "One second!" after we had been seated and waiting at least five minutes for menus. After the harrowing experience of... More

Probably the best food of its category in Solano County. This restaurant is in downtown Fairfield just off of West Texas st. on Madison st. Specializing in Southern cooking, this restaurant deserves everyone's attention. The building is large but unpretentious. Decorations are modest. My first impression was that everything was very neat and extremely clean. Almost like a military facility.... More

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 fairly crowded.

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!
