Had the fried gizzards/livers, which were cooked to order. The Livers were actually much better...nice and crispy, not dry. The sides were decent, had the mash potatoes and cabbage. Also had the rice with ox tails which was very tasty. Service was good. Waiters came to check on you for refills.

I'm a southern girl. So ofcourse I live southern cooking. My usual here is the smothered porked chops over yellow rice- Mac and cheese and cabbage as my sides! Yummy in my tummy! Everything always taste so fresh! If you're thinking of dessert, try the chocolate cake! ***If frequenting on a Sunday, you might want to wait until the church... More

We have eaten here several times. Their macaroni and cheese is excellent. All of the veggies are seasoned well. The fried shrimp is some of the best you will find! This is a cafeteria style restaurant. However, when you order the shrimp, it is cooked and brought to you table! My husband likes their chicken and some of our friends... More

Loved this place. As a Southern boy who's been away from home a little too long Potter's really hits the spot. It reminds me of the food my grandma made growing up: made with a lot of love and saturated fat. They really hit the highlight reel of Southern classics with entrees including fried chicken, oxtails, and smothered pork chops.... More

We went here on a Saturday night and it was pretty busy. It is cafeteria style so we stood in line for a few minutes to select our dinners, nut not too long. We had the fried chicken, greens, and mashed potatoes and chicken fingers, mac & cheese, and yams. It was all very good. The chicken breasts were perfect... More

While visiting Jax, we decided to stop in based on the numerous great reviews. The Yay's have it, this place is pretty darn good. The sides were perfect mac & cheese & dressing, even the cornbread was tasty. The fried chicken was a bit lacking in favor but not bad. We will definitely revisit. Almost forgot to mention, the service... More

Delicious!!!!! Everything, the fried chicken was crispy and tasty, seasoned perfect, the sides, crowder peas, green beans, mac & cheese (exceptionally good) collard greens and the desserts, peach cobbler and strawberry cake tasted like they had just come out of mama's oven!!! I initially had my doubts, but was not disappointed, just pleasantly surprised, oh, and the customer service was... More

If you already love Soul Food, or if you've never tried the southern-style comfort of Soul Food, you can't go wrong at the Soul Food Bistro! The perfectly-seasoned fried chicken was crispy outside and moist inside; the roast chicken was also excellent. We especially loved the collard greens, but all our sides were totally mouth-watering! We loved the cornbread, too.... More

Never disappointed at The Bistro. There is always quality food that fills you up and makes you think of mom and grandma. Get ready for a meal that afterward you'll definitely be ready for a nap:)
