This is country style soul food here with down home friendly service. The food is nice, not great, little pricey, but not something that is easily found to eat around most places. The neighborhood is terrible around here, so for the area it is an oasis in a desert. Take-out is most perferred.

This is REAL soul food. I know what you're thinking. 25th and Diamond?!? Believe me, it's not even that bad anymore. Even if it WAS, it'd be worth it for the food. The owner is a doll, the food is amazing, and the portions are HUGE. What's not to love?
