Tried “Taste of Soul” because a friend from Pittsburgh passing through recommended it. We had fried chicken and Ox tail, collard greens, candied yams, Mac & cheese and corn bread. Fried chicken is awesome and the Ox tail melts in your mouth. Candied yams, collard greens, and corn bread are great sides. No nonsense home cooking. Great value. Did I mention that the fried chicken is the best.

This family run place is a must if you love soul food. They even let you sample. The ox tail was amazing. Hog mawl was tender and full if flavor. Will be back

We went here for lunch and found it to be a great place. It is a store front restaurant nothing fancy but very clean. Each day there are several (4 today) specials from a list of 10. Today’s choices were the fried chicken (true southern fried chicken), Turkey flaps, pork chops, and a barbecue dish. Each is served with two sides from the sides of the Day. We chose the Mac n cheese, coleslaw and stewed okra n tomatoes from a list of 8 items. Some days there are fish offerings as well. Meat selections range from oxtail, chicken livers, short ribs to grilled cheese, hot dogs or ham. The menu changes daily. Prices are just right and the friendly staff really make you feel welcomed. They open at 11 to 8pm everyday (Sunday close at 6). Not open on Monday. We will definitely return.

A friend took me here for lunch and it was so good. She recommended the fried chicken and I had it with a side of green beans and mac & cheese. Both the sides were spot on and so tasty. The chicken was made to order and took a while but was so worth the wait. The crust was light and super crunchy and the inside juicy and tender. I must admit it was the best fried chicken I've had in a long time. Prices for lunch are very reasonable and include your choice of a main dish, two sides and a drink for under $10. We also shared a slice of the red velvet cake, it was good but not great. This place is a must try if you are a fried chicken fan.

Someone said it was good so being home cooked food fans, we went for dinner.

The place is very clean, simple menu 3-4 proteins and several sides.

You walk up to order, they cook fried chicken to order but the smothered chicken or meatloaf or pork chops are in front of you.

They serve up the food onto a plate and put it on a tray which you carry to your table after you pay.

Easy and fast.

The fried chicken is crispy, steamy and juicy. The green beans are wonderful. Everything is seasoned to perfection. The meatloaf is awesome, great gravy, excellent black eyed peas.

We are regulars.
