I drive pass this restaurant all the time and never was interested in purchasing food from Sweet Potatoes. Recently I was invited to a graduation party at the restaurant and boy have I missed out on some great food. The food was nice and hot and tasty. I must admit I went back for seconds. I can't wait to order... More

This small, unassuming eatery, has great Southern food - at least the fried chicken I had. Four small tables are squeezed into a storefront for "dining in", with a continuous stream of take-out customers passing by. The salad that started the meal was a surprise. Instead of the usual lump of lettuce calling itself a salad, it was closer to... More

Upon entering you are greeted by an amazing staff. The selection covered all areas but no way was I prepared for the mind blowing cuisine. Flavors that just popped and although I was getting full halfway through the meal I just couldn't stop...especially the macaroni & cheese. Make the trip and get sweet potatoed. :)

Great Soul Food. Fried Chicken and waffles were great. Mac and cheese and collard greens wonderful. Fried Catfish just right. Top it off with half homemade lemonade and sweet tea. Perfect.

Southern food and Southern hospitality is very rare to I was able to find it in SWEET POTATOE. I often receive phone calls to pick up food from sweet POTATOE and bring to Brooklyn. I guess I'm a delivery service for SP now. Never had bad food here before.

Let me make something clear for people who have never eaten here. Sweet Potatoes has two entrances on the same strip. One of on the far side, and the other is one the other side. If staring at the strip, the right side is a restaurant and the far left offers the brunch buffet. My fiance and I went and... More

this place is really small (4-5 tables), and not located where your would think a restaurant might be on North Ave. However, the food is wonderful, Both the fried chicken and corn bread should be ordered. If you like sweet drinks, the sweet tea and lemonade are great. The sweet potato fries have an unusual syrup/sauce that has, brown sugar,... More

The food was stupendous and made with love. Each dish that my guest and I tried was seasoned well and mouth watering. My favorite item on the menu was the short ribs which were literally falling off of the bone. Since this is a small restaurant it can get easily crowded which is the only drawback.

The reviews on Yelp were a bit deceiving. The restaurant that's open to the public is a very small take-out storefront with 5 little tables around the door. They do a very good business. I was in town with my daughter and the Yelp review photos looked nice. Those pics were from their private party room that is down the... More
