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

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.

This review actually is for the U Street, N.W. location. This is primarily a carry-out joint, but there is a small counter where approximately 4 persons can sit and eat.

I went to the K Street location in DC. The decorum was disappointing but the food was yummy. I purchased two fried fish dinners with mac & cheese, greens and corn bread. The filet fish was very meaty and fulfilling and the servings were generous and delicious. I am looking forward to visiting again.
