Excellent taste

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...

I may consider an affectionate pat on my momma's behind after getting after some of that Jambalaya. Another joint I've been a fan of for years. It is always busy and at times you may wait a bit or they will be out of something, but the service is always good and the food as well. Now occasionally some side... More

Tried this place on a whim with 3 of my associates. We did not have a reservation so we had to wait for 40 minutes for a table. We enjoyed solid cocktails and nice local beers while we waited. The food was GREAT! Ribs, brisket and hot links were all first rate. The homemade coleslaw and their greens were fantastic.

The food offered was unique. I had barbeque chicken; quite yummy sauce much like sweet baby ray's. I was looking forward to the black eyed peas but they had rice in them and we're stiff and tasted like sage or thyme....maybe that is a southern way of fixing them..gross. Slaw and macaroni/cheese was good. Bread pudding had good flavor but... More

But that is how good the ribs are. The collard greens were tender and delicious, I fell in love with the Okra. Sadly it's been 3 years since our last visit. They are closed Sunday's and Monday's. (The days we happened to be passing through town) Happily nothing has changed. Every thing was amazing, do try the sweet tea, just... More

Our visit here was great!! The food was great! I had fish, rice and corn bread.... It was all scrumptious. My significant other had chicken and a variety of other things.... My son had a hard time though, kids menu is nonexistent 👀 hence the 4 stars but if they had food specifically for kids instead of us trying to... More

New Orleans is our fav vacation destination so we were excited to find this place. Meats were cooked to perfection. Sides pretty decent. Sweet Tea awesome! The only thing that could make this place better would be Salt, Louisiana Hot Sauce, and Crystal's on the table..... can't figure out why they don't have them? Lots of items not on menu.... More
