Henry's is famous around the country for its sweet potato pies. They are really good. The rest of the menu it typical soul food.

“a good bargain spot for "no frills" soul food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

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. The plates are styrofoam and the utensils are plastic. The portions are large for the price and the food is satisfactory. The staff is "no nonsense", and don't seem to have a lot of patience with folks who can't make up their minds. I had the barbecue ribs. The ribs were meaty (no babybacks here), but could have used more seasoning. The sauce was just ok. The mac n' cheese, greens, and corn bread were fine. My companion had the fried fish and thought it was good.

I indicated that it has "outdoor seating." However, the seating is a few old dining room chairs on the sidewalk. You have to balance your food on your lap and avoid eye contact with hungry looking passerbys.

“yummy 2 my tummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

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.

“Delicious”

This is the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had, bar none. The sweet potato pie is also fantastic.
