    I would not recommend. The food tasted weird and I ate it because I don’t like wasting money but I tried the place just because the food did look appealing. But after I ate my second scoop of cabbage I saw what I thought was BACON I cannot eat any PORK NOR BEEF. No one stated that at all !! I got sick a couple minutes after and just was nauseous and headache and tummy pain but I stop eating pork and beef 4 years ago and the fact that food was not good and let alone the bacon that was in it!

    Man oh man! This was an awesome soul food stop and I will be coming back soon! I had a burger combo with chili and slaw added (does cost extra) and my sweetheart had a fishplate with cabbage and Mac and cheese my Lord!! Oh and the burger is not just any burger, you can tell that is handmade, seasoned to perfection and not out of a food processed box. Great tasting food and again I will be back soon!

    The customer service and food is always on point. This last go-around we had smothered pork chop with string beans, mac-n-cheese, and mashed potatoes along with some corn bread. Beyond amazing. This place is always a good choice in my opinion.

    No longer have desserts even though they still have them listed on their menu. The only drinks they have are Pepsi and water. They didn't have anything I came there to order. They won't let you use the bathroom. The cabbage was so spicy I couldn't eat it. The sides were larger than the meat portion, which was the roast chicken. Bad experience, I will never go back.

    Mac & Cheese was excellent and had a spicy bite to it. Would definitely recommend. Would have given 5 stars based solely on Mac & Cheese, however we were unable to get the rest of order as fryer was down and they were out of rice pudding.

    Everyone & the food is good, but they could ease up on the spices, a little too much heat in the food.

    I'm a regular and I've had quite a few of their dishes and they don't disappoint. My personal favorite is the rib dinner. I'd would recommend them to anyone. The food and service is very good.

    The food was ok. As other reviewers have mentioned, the lady taking orders isn't the most friendly person with customers. The lady who brought the food out from the kitchen was very pleasant. The fish was fried well but wasn't seasoned very well. They don't have hot sauce or vinegar. The macaroni & cheese has a unique taste with a little kick to it. I think the cabbage was a few days old. Maybe I caught them on a bad day. If I'm in the area, I may give them another try.

    I give it a 10 out of 5 !!!!! I travel a lot on my job and eat out twice sometimes 3 times a day and this was by far the best meal I've bought . To top it off the price out beats any other restaurants I've been to . This meal literally made my day .

    It's a good thing that we don't live closer or we'd be here every week (we're from Canada!) The hotel staff said if we wanted Soul Food, this is where we should go. Wow were they right! Delicious melt in your mouth, fall off the bone home-cooked chicken and ribs with all the fixings, served up by warm and friendly people. They found out it was my birthday and I found surprise birthday cake in the bag - thank you! If we had more time we could have spent an hour looking at the walls. Lots of history here. We'll be back next time we're down the I-95.

    Great old friends, good home cooking.

    Had to give *****stars or I'd be lying about those pork chop dinners! Wish the Mac and cheese was better😏Over all the best soul food in the Petersburg and surrounding areas.

    Came here at the last minute craving some good old fried fish. This place did not disappoint! Very crisp and flavorful fried fish, decadent candied yams and succulent peppery green beans! I will definitely come back when I visit Petersburg again. The owner was a very nice man too!

    Simply delicious. Inexpensive, great quality food with an even greater staff.

    The first time I had it it was ok, it lacked seasoning but I was like, I'll give them another try. Second time was worse, my rice was wet, it tasted like water. Super wet with no flavor the gravy was flavor free πŸ˜’, the little salt and pepper they gave you did not cut it and the sweet potatoe pie both times was wet, almost like they make it ahead of time, froze it, thawed it out and put it in the little boxes for sale. I'm good πŸ‘πŸ½.
