A friend of mine suggested that I try the soul food at Mikki's Soul Food Cafe and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed! I ordered a Kids meal which consisted of one entree, and two sides. It was more than enough food for me...because I get full quickly. I ordered the meatloaf with green beans and cornbread dressing. The dressing reminded me of my mother's. The green beans tasted as if they were from a can, but well-seasoned. The meal was worth the $9 I paid for it.More

Friend flew in from Iowa wanting soul. Everything looked amazing and what I ordered really was! Fried catfish. The dressing was so good! 😋 Candied yams and greens were great too! We will be back.

Visiting from out of town. The fried chicken was good, along with the baked macaroni and cheese and collard greens. The kool aid was the best way to wash down my food. This is a place you should try if visiting from out in town.

Chill place to get an old school plate of classic soul food. Gives you good Texas portion sizes. Would recommend for your soul food fix.

Food is always delicious! whether it be the meatloaf, Chicken, or Ox tails. Everything is homemade! The Jalapeno corn bread is one of my favorites. Always a pleasant experience with the staff.

On my last visit home I stopped at this new spot. I'd heard the south side location was good but never been. I will say this location was nice,clean,the staff was very friendly and helpful in choosing a great meal! I was very impressed with...the amount of food given and the great price! When I visit home I will make sure to revisit.More

Ladies & Gentlemen if you’re not concerned about calories, cholesterol, & portions go dig in ! If you don’t mind a little wait (line) the Food is very fulfilling, & if you have room you’ll want dessert preferably peach cobbler.

I'm somewhat new to Houston but I've been to Mikki's 4 or 5 times now. Every time I come the staff is EXTREMELY helpful. My cousins can get a bit particular but they always handle each request with patience and great service. On my last...visit I brought my mother who sat in the car on our last visit. She was blown away by the number of people inside (hence, why I wanted her to wait in the car) but I wanted her to experience the atmosphere for herself. She's 87 and we're both from Detroit, where we're picky about our soul food restaurants, but she admitted Mikki's is the best she's seen...hands down (and we've traveled all over Houston to compare). And despite the crowd they didn't try and skimp on the portions. Prices are reasonable. Food is delicious. Staff is pleasant (and I commend them every time I come). One drawback...I don't know when or how they intend to get it done , but expansion is inevitable. I'd invest if asked. The model is excellent, the food great, the service superb. What's not to like?More

I met a bus driver who recommended that my trip to Houston would not be complete without a trip to Mikki's Cafe for soul food. There were many options, such as oxtails, turkey necks in gravy and chitterlings. This Brooklyn girl kept it simple with...fried chicken, red beans, macaroni and cheese and cornbread. It was an average meal, well seasoned and tasty, but not better than Amy Ruth's in Harlem. The peach cobbler was really good. The staff was courteous which made this a nice experience.More
