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.

The food was good, fresh and tasty but the portions were small. The service was good we did not have to wait long for a table. It was late and close to closing time.

I was in Southfield for a business trip this past weekend looking for some soul food. I asked the hotel manager where the best soul food was. She blurted out, " Beans & Cornbread!" She warned that it would be a long wait since it was Sunday and the after church crowd would be heavy. We got there and had... More

What a great restaurant. The cornbread is definitally the best I've ever had. The meatloaf was amazing. The only bad thing is that the portion sizes are too big. What a great place. I'm definitally coming back again!

Was visiting Southfield and came across this restaurant through Trip Advisor. Don't get soul food at home and this was a real treat. We did have to wait 45 minutes for a table but it was worth it. Also the staff where great.

Although "tucked away" is a small commercial strip, this place is worth discovering. Atmosphere-check Ambience-Check Service-check Warmth of staff-check. Food Quality-Double check!!! We even made great friends with two couples that were at the restaurant. I give this place a very high rating.
