Easily the best soul food in Kansas City!! Amazing food and the staff was incredibly attentive and nice. We didn't want to leave. The lunch buffet was regularly stocked and everything was fresh and hot. Nothing dried out. Their sweet tea was pretty amazing too.

Down home cookin' at its best, just like I grew up with in the South. It's not just barbeque, but fried catfish, homemade biscuits...and grits!

I visited this restaurant in August. The food was amazing!! I had the soul food buffet. It had tons of southern favorites like fried chicken, smothered chicken, stuffing, candied yams, greens, potato salad, fried fish, and tons more all for $9.99!! The service was wonderful!!! For a second, I thought my grandmother was in the kitchen preparing all the food!!... More
