The neighborhood is average with Food Lion, McDonalds, and Hess nearby, but Starbar is above average. The exterior is store-front and non-descript, but the inside emphasizes red, elegance, soul food, drinks bar, music. I have stopped by several times, but recently, we brought a friend along and he loved both the atmosphere and the food. The server was friendly and attentive as well, so the overall experience was a positive one for all of us. It would be nice to go back and be able to stay long enough to listen to the music. I am sure it will be excellent as well.
