Been here for Breakfast and dinner. Breakfast service was slow and the food was just average. Could have done better at home.
Tried dinner a few months later. Service again was less than average and not friendly. Then in a bite of food, a staple made it to my mouth.
I pulled it out and placed it on my plate, showed the server and also the owner who is frequently there. Neither recognized the urgency of this error. The server proceeded to take my plate away and immediately brought us the check.
Needless to say. I will never go back.

John's Place is the best soul food in Newark area and it has a social "who's who" client base among the African American community...Go and enjoy!

I was craving southern food and went there, very pricy. Just had an order of collard greens and fried shrimp and it was $20 and change. The shrimp was good but kind of tasteless, the collard greens were disgusting and the cornbread tasted like dough. This is the worst tasting southern food I've had by far, might as well had went to the corner store. Everything tasteless! :{

Down home cooking and a warm friendly atmosphere await you @ John's Place.
I'm a long time fan of this restaurant and think you'll become one as well.
