southern food..... Large portions but the food was sub-par. Chicken fried steak was tasty but nothing special. Nice-sized servings of the sides - mac and cheese and collard greens. Mac and cheese tasted like it came out of a can...collard greens were better but lots of hot sauce needed to be added. My boyfriend got fried chicken, mac and cheese and fries. Although he ate it all, he mentioned that it was good..."just plain". AND most importantly, a Southern food restaurant WITHOUT SWEET TEA??!! Menu said they had "just brewed tea". Very surprised to not see it on the menu. However, service was good. All in all it was OK...
The second location of this local soul food favorite brings big plates of bargain-priced Southern specialties to the Richmond district..
Diners hungry for cheap plates of barbecue and fried catfish find solace in the outer avenues at this outpost of Alabama truck-stop chic. Kitschy, rusty odds and ends--typewriters, brand-name signs, old tools and the occasional giant fish head--hang on corrugated tin walls that give way to high loft-like ceilings studded with slowly rotating ceiling fans. In a neighborhood mostly known for its Asian restaurants, this spot serves Southern staples like fried chicken, meatloaf and shrimp po' boys with a choice of sides: mac 'n' cheese, red beans and rice, collard greens, candied yams, cornbread muffins warm from the oven, the whole deal. Sunday brunch--especially popular when there's a sports game to catch on the large TV that hangs on one wall--boasts omelets, meat-and-egg combos and grits to keep it as authentic as possible.
