Food the soul.

Right off 495 (in DC) The food at Henry's is sooo good. You will have to take a nap when you done eating. Don't forget the sweet potato pie.

I searched for flavor in...the chitterlings, the cornbread, the mac & cheese (found oil at the bottom) and collard greens. None. Pretty disappointed. Portion sizes were awesome!

Looking for a place that serves great tasting good, Henry's Soul Cafe in Oxon is the place! Our family tried the smothered pork chops, fried chicken wings, bbq chicken, and the bbq beef tips. For the sides we tried mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, buttered corn, rice with gravy, and potato wedges. Each meal also comes with cornbread. Once... More

I Love Henry's Soul Cafe. When I get a taste for some good old soul food and don't have to cook it myself, that's where I head off to. It's a Family run business and they are friendly and the place is ALWAYS packed especially after Sunday Morning Church. People call those orders in and go there and pick them... More

This review is on the Oxon Hill location. I love Henry's fried trout and smothered pork chops. They season them both well. Thefish was crispy and didn't have a lot of bones in it. The pork chops were meaty and well done. The portions are generous. I have purchased both of these meals and fed 4 people. Good job, Henry's...keep... More

My buddy visited me for the day from Birmingham and I wanted him to sample Henry's sweet potato pie. He enjoyed it just as much as I do.

This is a review of the branch on Q Street in Washington DC, hope that's right. This is a takeout joint and an unadorned one, but the food is really good and the whole experience worth having. It's not a place that puts a lot into anything but giving you good food at a very reasonable price as fast as... More

If you want bland pre-cooked left over food then this is the place for you. The food is horrible. The best sweet potatoe pie? This must mean people in Maryland/DC have never had good sweet potato pie. I"m from LA and have had some of the best soul food in resturants. My family is creole from New Orleans so I... More

Going into a restaurant for the first time and tasting all the basic, macaroni, greens, sweet potatoes, string beans, corn bread, meats, one taste... all the food was bad. I gave the food back and told them to keep the money and I have never been back. It appears to have that "Good Old Southern County Cooking" it not.
