“This soul food is the real deal!”
Reviewed August 15, 2006

On a recent visit to Charlotte from California, my sister and brother-in-law treated us to dinner at this delightful restaurant. Definitely the best creamed (known elsewhere as mashed) potatoes on the planet! Don't add gravy--you can't improve on perfection. Cook Mama Simmons knows her stuff. Also noteworthy are the potato salad, collard greens, broccoli casserole and macaroni and cheese. Many of the staff are family, all are friendly. Service is fast, prices are low. This little family-run Fourth Ward retaurant is surely Charlotte's best kept secret. If you try it once, I can almost guarantee you'll be back again and again. Make sure you try something different each visit, though. My relatives, who are lucky enough to live within walking distance of the restaurant, were chastised for always ordering the same thing. The food at Simmons is exactly as advertised on the menu-- "It's the bomb"!
