Best Oxtail and Cornbread!

We moved near this restaurant and decide to give it a try based on a friend's recommendation. We chose to visit on a Sunday night, which we found was a busy time to go. Line management was actually quite impressive, so we didn't wait very long. Prices are reasonable. I rated it mid-range because... read more

The food is so good and the service is A++ . The bbq ribs and oxtail rice are the real deal. Very affordable and also the smothered pork chops are excellent as well.

My partner and I have been to many southern food restaurants and this is one of the best. Lots of flavor and generous helpings. The mac and cheese was baked and authentic - not Velveeta melted on some macaroni. The cornbread was the perfect balance of moist and crumbly. And don't get me started on the fried chicken! Perfect crispy... More

My Husband and I went there for the first time after hearing many good things about this place and I must say they do have good Southern Food. I would recommend this to anyone that likes or wants to try southern food.

Any and everything you can think of, they have it! I ordered two dinners - baked chicken and oxtails (sides for both were greens and mac'n'cheese). The cashier was not the friendliest, BUT the manager and folks preparing the orders were some of the NICEST people!!! It's nice to this restaurant on the southside of town. Not the place to... More

Soul food that makes you happy! Cafeteria style which means you don't have to wait in line long and the fish is made to order.

I was in Jacksonville, Florida for four days and ate here three of the days. The only reason we did not eat here on the fourth day is that they were not open. I usually do not like waiting in line nor do I enjoy cafeteria style. However, I did both at the Potter’s House and will do it again... More
