“Do you have soul?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is country style soul food here with down home friendly service. The food is nice, not great, little pricey, but not something that is easily found to eat around most places. The neighborhood is terrible around here, so for the area it is an oasis in a desert. Take-out is most perferred.

“Simply put "The example of how to run a GREAT soul food spot"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2009

Everything you know about soulfood is done with precisionn here. They really understand how people want GREAT soulfood all the time not one of theses bad day spots either everyone that works there seems to enjoy servicing the customer. A true throwback to the times when people cared about the people as much as there money...

“Fresh Friendly Down Home Authentic Soul Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2008

This is REAL soul food. I know what you're thinking. 25th and Diamond?!? Believe me, it's not even that bad anymore. Even if it WAS, it'd be worth it for the food. The owner is a doll, the food is amazing, and the portions are HUGE. What's not to love?
