Best Gumbo north of the mason dixon line!

The location seemed a bit odd - looked like part of a strip mall. Don't let the location or cheap diner lay out fool you. the food here is wonderful. Loved the gumbo, wish I had more. The Swamp Thing entrée offered a taste of all things deep south and tasty good.

At Beans & Cornbread, you can have it all! You can eat in the delightful restaurant or you can order carryout at Beans & Cornbread Too Go, just a few doors away from the restaurant! I love their BarBQue spare ribs. When I order them to go, I sometimes ask them to hold the sauce or use it sparingly. Then... More

I really loved its food. I had the fried catfish with collard greens and yams. The yams reminded me of the ones my mom use to make before she found out she was diabetic. The greens was on point. The fish was fried perfectly. I would comeback and recommend.

The 3 fish tenders were crispy and flavorful, the fries were greasy and not edible. The fried chicken was okay,the Mac and cheese was creamy and so good ! The collard greens were good,the red...

I have been eating at B & C for many years. The food is delicious and always fresh. I have never had a bad meal at B & C. B & C is doing something right. There is always a line out the door. If you can't wait use their B & C Too Go. You are missing a real... 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

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 to this restaurant several times... 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
