    This spot gets so crowed between 11am-3pm on Sunday but It's worth the wait. Not too noisy great drink specials fantastic time you'll have.

    Mac & Cheese is as amazing as everyone says, possibly the best I've ever had. However the chicken and waffles are underwhelming...

    The sweet potato pancakes at SoCo caught our eye and this outstanding dish stood on its own without syrup. We even found these hot cakes to be deserving of our Best Pancakes of 2016! Read more

    The problem = service. Slow even when it wasn't busy and server couldn't be bothered to check on how we liked the food or to see if we wanted more drinks. Likely reason? Auto 18% tip for parties 3+ 🙄

    The mac and cheese was a hit with all four of my party. The waffle and chicken and cucumber cocktail were also well received. Apple cider marg and mango cocktail were just okay. Didn't like cornbread.

    Come for the fried chicken but stay for the grits. Don't underestimate the sweet potato pancakes, though

    Delicious mac and cheese and fried chicken with red velvet waffles make this a solid brunch move, especially on a rainy summer day thanks to their covered backyard patio.

    I had the pulled pork sandwich, ptarmigan fries, mac and cheese, and a mojito all was great. I would recommend a reservation this place gets pack at opening but it's worth the wait.

    Not your typical Eggs Benny, the Bourbon St. Eggs Benedict at Soco is composed of shrimp & crawfish cakes and poached eggs, nestled on mini bagels and topped with Old Bay Hollandaise! Read more

    Amazing fried chicken and red velvet waffles and bottomless mimosas. Every time your glass of mimosa is less than full, someone comes by and refills it. Make reservations. This place gets busy.

    Good is ok, a bit over priced & tip is automatically calculated for parties of three or more - wasn't too thrilled about that. Would've given a bigger tip but wasn't given an option. So their loss.

    Nouveau southern soul / cajun food that goes a bit too far in the creativity department, making the food less feel-good than it should be. The gumbo was classic and good however
