    Hands down one of my favorite restaurants. Plates are to be shared. BBQ (smoked beef and slow roasted pork) is amazing and order several sides such as the yuca, fried plantains, and cornbread

    This is the closet thing you will get to soul food in Minnesota. Consistently delicious, moderately priced, with a cool vibe. You can't go wrong with their comforting vittles! Parking is a challenge

    It's a sort of Minnesota-farm-driven hybrid of two other restaurant traditions, namely the South American way of making rotisserie meats, and the classic Southern meat-and-three soul-food set-up. Read more

    What's good here? Everything! The chicken curry bowl with yellow rice was perfect. If you have never tried curry, this is a great introduction. Try it with the collard greens. Very affordable too.

    Delicious, #locallysourced dishes prepared with a blend of southern and Latin American influences. The yucca fries are to not to be missed. I would bathe in their cilantro lime aioli.

    Come with friends and order everything. No. seriously. Standouts: the rotisserie chix, pork, collard greens, sweet plantains, and jalapeño spinach. Great paleo option!

    Try the Pork Sandwich. Slow-roasted pork, dripping with spices and a healthy dose of the vibrant and tangy mojo sauce, brings sense to this mad, mad world.—Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, February 2011

    It's all about the meat. And the guac. And the corn cakes. And the house hot pepper vinegar. And alot more.

    While the meat was mighty good, we favored the filling vegetable sides, namely the crisp yucca fries, candied yams, rustic cheesy grits and the warm chunks of honey-glazed cornbread.

    If they have the spare ribs on special, get them. They are some of the best ribs in the city - thick, smokey, and juicy, but not overly sauced.
