“My Soul Food place in the D”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I have eaten here several times. Man the fried chicken is the best along with the sides. The price is good and you will get full. Now they can do a little remolding because the resturant has looked the same for a few years and it is getting dated but make no mistake if you enjoy soul food this is the place to be.

“Sometimes you just need good soulfood”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I couldnt decide what I had a taste, and after an hour of driving around I decided on Southern Fires and was glad I did. The soul food, in my humble opinion, is the best in Detroit. I am aware that another place was voted number 1 and honestly not really sure how that happened. If you want juicy fried chicken, mac and cheese that tastes home made, and dressing that reminds you of a holiday in late November, then this is where you need to be. A little word of advise, if you are not eating, and neither of you have huge eaters, try ordering one meal and splitting. I have found this helpful and very filling.
