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

We have been there by recommendation. My first impression was, that it's too crowded for having a dinner, but to set your name on the waiting list for a free table is absolutely worth! The menu is nore too small nor too big. We tried different meals, which all were awesome! The service team is friendly and proffessional. I recommend... More

I have been many times and enjoyed the food. I especially like the fried chicken. The menu is also fun. There are often lines when I have been there so be flexible. My only negative experience was with one server that wasn't helpful and we had to wait on our food for nearly 45 minutes. She said our order of... More

I recently went to this place for the first time---after it has been here for years, go figure! I was in a party of 7, and we all tasted everything! Their fried chicken was delightful, and the list of sides went on and on---and after I tasted the Mac and Cheese, Collard Greens, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Corn, Corn Bread,... More
