We have been to this restaurant a few times over the past two years. This time we had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated. But the food is worth waiting for; trust me. We both ordered the fried chicken and a beer. Tables are close but that's a good thing. You meet the nicest people here. The service... More

Ate there last night and the food was great. I had the jerk chicken with a banana sauce OMG! It was good. Mac and cheese was delightful. Bread pudding with sauces was delish! Definitely a place not to miss when in Eugene!!! The only downside was the wait.

In Eugene saw an add for this place. Not far from hotel took the hotel shuttle. Its got all the things you would want in a soul food and BBq place. Blues pics, good music playing in the background. Old house turned into a Soul Food joint. First thing we noticed the service is extremely slow. Many tables setting around... More

A small place and a bit noisy but the food is amazing but probably not the most healthy you can think of. I had the pork ribs which were meaty and with a very tasty sauce

this little restaurant has the best soul food around! The place is packed usually and only open from 11-2 and 5-10, closed Sunday and Monday. We have eaten there many times and had everything on the menu at one time or another. You will love it all!

We came out on a Saturday night, about 6 p.m. The venue is small, and Oregon weather was not yet "deck" weather. Staff was friendly - even joking with us since we had come up to watch ASU vs Duck baseball (cheering on ASU with family!) We had a yummy appetizer (shrimp on grits - appetizer was to have three...
