“Check your diet at the door for some authentic Southern cookin'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This restaurant is the second location of a well know "Soul Food" place on the Westside of town. The food is authentic Southern with choice of meat, 2 sides and cornbread or roll for around $8.00. The fried chicken is as good as any I have had. All the sides are great and they have daily specials. The service is the best I have had in awhile, and the restaurant and bathrooms are spotless. The choices of sides included sweet potatoes, fried cabbage, collard greens, field peas, and several others. You can also choose a salad instead of a veg for a small price. The mac and cheese is also some of the best I have had. We went for lunch, arrived at 1100 when they opened, and they were busy within 30 minutes. It is a little hard to find, in a freestanding building in front of the Walmart on Atlantic and Kernan. Well worth the effort it takes to find it. I will visit here frequently and take my family and friends.

“Almost like home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Very good home like cooking. The only problem is they need to have more consideration for their customers' sodium intake. Please go lighter on the salt and allow customers to add salt at the table.
They serve cafeteria style, and there is a good choice of vegetables. The restaurant is clean and well arranged. The staff is welcoming and friendly.
I had baked chicken breast, collard greens and candied yams. The chicken was nice and tender, the greens were not greasy, and the yams were a bit on the overly sweetened side, but very good.
If you guys lay off the salt a little, I would definitely return.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been looking for a good soul food restaurant here in Jacksonville and I found it! I had the smothered pork chops on my first visit and what generous portions they give. I could have shared my plate. The cornbread was sooooo good I could have eaten the whole pan. Also, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend!
