We get takeout from this place. We order the fried chicken. I've had the jerk chicken before and I prefer the fried chicken. Baked beans are my favorite side dish. They are spicy. Corn bread is to die for too. Coleslaw is my other go to side.

While I certainly expected a lot more, I was not even mid-happy about this. Service so slow I wondered if it was actually open. Food very bland and not anything as it pretends. I shall not return...... ever.

Here's the Honest Scoop- It's a BBQ joint in an old house in a trendy neighborhood in what has, and continues to, attract a questionable population. But enough popular businesses are located in the area to make you feel comfortable. Parking is on the street. Circle a block or two and you'll find a spot even on a busy weekend... More

A birthday lunch treat for my other half. We had the Southern fried snapper and pulled pork with a side of mac n cheese. Perfect comfort food for a wintery day. Tasty with generous portions. Service was a little slow, but part of the charm.

Five of us were delighted to experience Papa's Soul Food. Cajun is the first word to describe the awesome tastes we experienced! Beef brisket, fried chicken, pork ribs, pulled pork and snapper were the meats. Sides of hush puppies, slaw, yams, and so many other southern treasures. It was definetly a go again type of place. Was packed, kind of... More

If you like fried oysters go to this place. Try to go on sunny afternoon and find place on the back patio. Fast service.

Won't ever go back. We sat and waited for food for an hour and a half and finally gave up. The staff was friendly but didn't seem fazed by giving slow service. We could see the cook on her phone through the window. No wonder no food was coming out. There were 5 tables around us waiting for food. Thankfully... More
