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.

Service is good except for the time...The have also catered for me and have done... More

My dad pulled up at a little place in Fairfield California, and I truly didn't know what I was in for. I was very pleasantly surprised! First off, the service was fantastic, friendly people with just the right amount of attention. Our food came in a timely manner, but I would have waited a week for that good of food!... More

As a 65+ this is like eating back in the country. Good menus selection, however I did not like the peach cobbler.

I went in this evening right after leaving work. I read the reviews and figured I couldn't go wrong and I was right. I had the crawfish étouffée and it was very tasty. I feel obligated to say that it's not the best étouffée I've had after living in Texas my whole life and passing through Louisiana a few times.... More
