They were really busy but they were very friendly and gave us 2 different updates. They even gave me an extra piece of chicken. We have enough food for another meal. Collard greens were a little spicy for me but were really good! I’d go back again and I’m happy to support a local restaurant.

Typically if I am waiting for over an hour to get something to eat it's with a party of 50 during a peak hour. This was not the case on a friday at 10:30 when a small group walked into Kuzzo's and waited over 35 minutes to get our initial drink orders. I held out hope that the chicken and waffles would be to die for and that would make me feel better about the wait... The chicken was delicious, served hot and was super crispy but nothing really made it stand out from any other fried chicken I have had. The waffle was good but nothing more than a waffle I have made at home or had at any other diner. The syrup given was just your typical grocery store variety. I guess what I am saying is, if you are looking for your run of the mill chicken and waffles and have plenty of time to kill than this is your spot but if you think Time is money unless you are getting something amazing than maybe pass this place by.

I never do reviews so I hate to say that I will Never patronize this restaurant ever again. The staff was mostly in the kitchen, leaving no staff members on the floor what so ever. I stood by the bar for at least 5 minutes before I was able to flag staff down to help me. Judging from my waitresses body language, she made it very uncomfortable to even ask for hot sauce. Ordered the food to go along with dining in, I was not given any communication on when my food was ready. The waitress could not even bring the take out to my table. She left the food at the bar for me to get it myself and her body language was terrible. My friend had to return her over cooked chicken in old grease. Before the renovation, the food and service was awesome. Since the reopening, the food and service was terrible. The staff argued with us about inquiring about our food order and continued to curse us as we were leaving. I feel sorry for the owner. That place had so much potential. It’s very cool on the inside. What a waste

This is definitely NOT the best or number 1 place for chicken and waffles or any other food. The chicken was burnt and you could tell the grease it was fried in was old, unchanged in days. The breasts were dry and not seasoned well. The waffles were tasteless. Not all menu items were available, so my table was not able to order everything they really wanted. Do not waste your time or money.

I was on vacation and heard about this place so I walked in. The place was CROWED, so I took that as a sign that food must be good. I sat at the counter and waited..... .....and waited..... .....and waited..... .....and waited..... After 15 minutes, I was finally offered some water. I decided to play a game of Bid Whist on my phone while I waited to give me order. I end up play 3 full games and no one came to take my order. I ask the guy next to me "How long have you been waiting?" He tells me "40 minutes". The group of women on the other side of me blurted out "We've order but it has been 1 hour and 15 minutes and all we have is drinks". I politely got up, walked out and left.

My family and I had a really great experience at Kuzzo’s. The restaurant had a really good atmosphere and great soul food. This was the best restaurant that I experienced in Detroit during our 4-day visit. Make sure you have a little time because the service is a little slower. The staff was very friendly and Racquel provided great service to my table. All around awesome experience. I look forward to visiting again on my next trip to Detroit.

I had been here before and had a great experience. This time was awful. The waitress was rude and had an awful attitude. Waited at least 20 minutes for our drinks. Food was not hot and chicken was dry and burnt.

I visited this restaurant on January 12th with two friends, as we waited a long time in which we were content with, we were finally seated by a couple who were already waiting 20 minutes for our server to speak to them. When she finally got to us she took our orders and never asked for drinks. We then could not signal for her to come back to our table until 15 minutes later she finally asked us. We then waited another 40 minutes for our food to come out, not to mention the couple by us who ordered at the same time got their food and was able to leave before our food arrived. During the long wait, another couple was then seated, served by another server, and able to leave before we were able to eat. Once we finally got our food the waffles were soggy, eggs were cold, and grits were hard. We asked for a manager and he came over as the “kitchen manager” and laughed as we told him about our food. He then took our food and when we finally got it back a hot waffle was placed on top of the other cold soggy one and it took 15 more minutes to get runny eggs and hard grits once again. Nothing was given to us or tooken off our bill. Just a lesson learned to never patronize this business again.

We discovered this restaurant while visiting the Detroit Fiber Works art gallery on the Avenue of Fashion. We attended a meet and greet with Duriean Fletcher the creator of the jewelry for the Black Panther movie. There was a line formed waiting to get and we asked several people about the food-all said it was worth the wait. Little did we know their response included a wait time for the meal also. Our server was very nice and helpful. She recommended some of her favorites and was very professional. She strongly recommended the Koolaid-it was very good. I selected the chicken wings, collard greens, rice with gravy along with the mac & cheese. My hubby had their fish with the same sides. Their huge muffins can double for a dessert item, very yummy. I found the food had a little too much seasoning. Overall, we enjoyed the food so much that we decided the following week to take our aunt for Sunday dinner. She loved the food, but again the wait time was excessive. Be sure to check out their Sunday specials! The facilities left much to be desired-I had to mention several times it needed assistance. Average rating is because the wait was much to long and the facility issue was not resolved despite me mentioning multiple times. That being said try it for your self just be prepared to wait.

OMG! Where do I start? You need to go here only if you have 2-2 1/2 hours to dedicate to having a meal that would involve 45 minutes elsewhere. And you'll be frustrated while you wait with the extremely high noise level, unfriendly staff, disorganization, etc. There is a small bar with open seating that you would think you could sit at when a chair is open...nope! I was told that there were others ahead of me and I couldn't sit there. Although, I saw a few people go ahead and sit there. The entire time I waited for a table, there was always 1-3 chairs open and available at the bar. I just don't get it? There is some serious disorganization in this establishment that is passed onto the patron. Whoever is in charge of this restaurant needs to do something to make it more pleasant for the patrons, the staff...and ultimately to influence the profitability of this restaurant. It is a small to medium sized place with slow, unmotivated staff, uncomfortable chairs and average to better than average food. I ordered the Dark and Lovely, a chicken and waffle dish, that I must say, had an excellent tasting waffle. The chicken was good, but greasy. Halfway through the meal, I realized that my stomach didn't like what I was doing to it...all of that grease! My husband ordered the Red Velvet Waffle and Chicken Tenders. It was okay, but that waffle tastes like a cheap cake mix with artificial flavors lingering on after the bite. The staff walk so slowly back and forth, but why should they hurry? The food is going to take approx. another 40 minutes to be ready. The server let our glasses be empty for a long time, forgot what we requested, and was not easy to talk to when asked to describe an item on the menu. OWNER, you're losing business! I saw several people unwilling to wait for a table, leaving only to go elsewhere. Streamline your process, get a bigger dining room, hire more staff, do something to organize the cooking/kitchen process, PLEASE! When the kitchen door opens, you can see 8 or so staff getting in each other's way trying to cook and plate the food. The food was average, the wait was unbearable and ridiculously long, we wouldn't eat here again because of those factors. There are other things to do on a sunny Autumn day besides camp out at an average restaurant. People were even waiting in a very long line to use the bathroom! It just shouldn't be....

My niece's suggestion to go to Kuzzo's for dinner was an awesome idea. We awaited our mom's approval after ordernig the vegetable plate since this was her first visit. Kudos to Kuzzo's for a satisfying meal! The chicken, red velvet and blueberry waffles, other sides and kool-aid were enjoyed. Beneta did an excellent job as our server!
