Food was delicious. Being brutally honest when I walked in felt out of place, I'm certainly not from that neighborhood. Not welcoming, people just stared. Glad I ordered take out and we spent over $100.

get off at McDuff and go east toward the river. Turn right on St Johns. The restaurant will be on the right in the Avondale shopping area.
