Was in the area for business and decided to give this a try. Excellent southern comfort food and very nice southern hospitality. My colleague had the chicken gumbo. He said it was out of this world and we later learned they've won awards for it. Try the 3 meat platter. Ribs were the best ribs I've had anywhere. Meat literally... More

We made a reservation 2 weeks prior to Mother's Day. We got there 30 minutes before our reservation since it was Mother's Day. We knew it would be busy. This was our first visit to this restaurant, we heard about it from some friends. It was the smallest footprint for such a busy restaurant. Plus it was even busier due... More

I was in town for a weekend and asked a friend about a nice place to eat. I was told to try Beans and Cornbread. It did not disappoint. It is a black on business and the food was great. I ordered the pork chops dinner with two sides. I chose rice and gravy and candy yams for my sides.... More

Beans & Cornbread has authentic food, a wonderful staff and is a dining experience. Make this a destination, when you're in the area.

Can't comment on the food, but I can say that going over to the bar area after signing in for a 45 min wait, we were never acknowledged by the bar staff while sitting and waiting for 10 min. Went elsewhere.

We visited this place after much hype from our associates. We expected a much better experience. First of all, the place is a hole in the wall. That's not a bad thing but it's very crowded. They are very slow bringing your food. They wait is frustrating. Our macaroni came our COLD. The rib tips were Old and over cooked.... More

There was a warm atmosphere in the air and people were eating or ordering from the menu. They had a variety of foods to choose from. They even had vegetarian meat to offer. That was good for me since I don't eat me. The place was nice to look at and the service was timely. They are a popular restaurant... More

This place is a hidden gem. It is a very small restaurant and extremely crowed most of the time. You would think with all the business that they are getting that they would be able to expand to a larger facility. The ribs, greens and catfish was very tasty and the service was also great! This place will not disappoint... More
