Heavenly mac n cheese.

We ate here four times during a long visit. The food was amazing. The mac-n-cheese appetizer with ham was delicious, as was the fried chicken. For the some dinners, like the fried chicken, you can order a half portion, which I recommend (it's a lot of food). I actually don't like sweet... read more

I've passed on Sweet Potatoes a couple of times...clearly I was a fool. It's worth waiting for a table here. Soul food, cool food, home style with a twist...I don't know what you call it, bit I know I'll be back. Sweet potato biscuits with molasses? Yes, please! 3 cheese macaroni and ham? Oh yea! Fried chicken with marmalade and... More

Randon pick in Winston Salem based on some general reviews on Trip Advisor. Had a fried chicken breast that was perfectly cooked and delicious. Located in the Arts District that we did not get to spend much time in buts looks like a nice place to walk around.

Hate to bore everyone with what appears to be overwhelming positive reviews, but really enjoyed my lunch here today. The place was busy, but it was the tail end of the lunch hour and there were a couple of seats at the bar. Wasn't overly hungry so went with the Oyster Po Boy salad, which was perfect. After biting into... More

My tastebuds danced to the soul and passion in each bite of the Southerly Chicken, smashed potatoes, and peach marmalade sauce, while my spouse enjoyed a collard green pesto pasta topped by a seafood medley. The delightful atmosphere and staff exemplified southern charm and hospitality. We shared a slice of heaven, the sweet potatoe pie with homemade light and fluffy... More

We stopped at this place while walking through downtown and found it great. We ordered a variety of items including the macaroni and cheese and ham souffle. I am not a Mac and cheese person but this was great, a nice sized portion and inexpensive. We also had salmon and ordered a side of pork rinds. The rinds were not... More

Perfectly fried OKRA, a hamburger with pimento cheese topping, perfect sweet potato fries and, if course, sweet tea. That's Sweet Potatoes. The service is fast and friendly and the prices are very reasonable.
