Good food

I went to Beans and Cornbread with my sister. I had fried chicken wings with macaroni and cheese and my sister had pork chops and sweet potatoes. My chicken was flavorful and crisp and the macaroni and cheese was creamy. My sister on the other hand said that her pork chops were tough. I've been... read more

If you don't know about this place, get to know it. Every time I travel to Detroit I make time to go here to eat. Now that my other traveling family members have eaten here, it's a MUST STOP and EAT place to be. It menu is a soul food based light fare, so you don't feel like you've eaten... More

You can't go wrong with this place! I had the combo with Wings, rib tips and pork chop. Everything was seasoned well, especially the collards. I sat in the bar and ate, great R&B music in the background. Ask for the "singing bartender" she was good.

I have never ordered wings and gotten whole wings just a portion of a wing. BBQ sauce on the app wings was so good I could have enjoyed them even after the meat was done. Cornbread is by far superior to any I have ever eaten. Had rib tips for a main course omg! Staff is great and friendly must... More

I meet a fellow retiree here about once a year for lunch. We started eating here about 10 years ago. The portions were always large and tasty. Now they are small and tasty. This restaurant specializes in soul food. The last time I ate the beef tips. Very tasty, but time consuming getting the meat off the tiny bones. I... More

A group of friends and I ate at Beans and Cornbread today. We all had a hard time choosing what to eat as so many things sounded good. I chose one of their lunch special menu items of Fried Catfish and Candied Sweet Potatoes for $7.25. I had read so many reviews about how good their greens were. But seeing... More

If you like good home cooked soul food, this is the place. Everything I have tried was good. Chicken, ribs, rib tips, meat loaf, catfish, mac n cheese, collard greens. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Usually pretty crowded. You might have a short wait.

My family decided to go to Beans and Cornbread just to have the most delicious chicken and waffles meal. Service was great and our server was very friendly and attentive. We will be returning very soon! By the way, we love the Cornbread and sweet potato mini muffins too.

This is great place to eat; soul food at its best. Not so greasy and unidentifiable but good quality food prepared with excellence. Great waitstaff too.
