The food was amazing and I was pleasantly surprised. The blueberry cornbread was the best cornbread I’ve ever had. Ms. Shavon was very welcoming and accommodating too. Definitely coming back for more!

Initially when I called that wasn't many items that was still left which made me a little weary but I found something on the menu the jerk chicken and two sides that absolutely made up for what was not available. They definitely have good food and I would recommend this place.

This is the best food that I have had in Baltimore. The Mac and cheese, corn bread, sweet potatoes, collard greens, and broccoli were outstanding. My pan seared salmon was awesome. I'll definitely be coming back to this adorable family-owned restaurant.

We ordered take out smothered porkchops and curried chicken. The porkchops were meaty and not over done. The curried chicken was slightly spicy and made West Indian style with coconut milk. Over all the meal was extremely satisfying. I definitely recommend this place that wants good soul food. Oh by the way, the sides were awesome.

This is the real deal. You will get grissle, you will get fat, you will get inedible pieces of bone, but you will also get flavor. If you have never experienced real food, this place will blow your mind. If you have, it will take you back to those family gatherings full of people and flavor. This is the place to be.
Rob B via - Apr 26, 2020
Stumbled upon this place yesterday looking for some good soul food to eat after a long day of work. I was greeted with a warm welcome when I came through the door, and my food was hot, fresh, and delicious. It also wasn’t overly seasoned, which is rare to find at a good soul food spot these days. The portions were just right as well.
