    Fried chicken and collared greens are on point, as is the meatloaf and black eyes peas. Try both!

    Smothered chicken is great, spicy greens and mac n cheese is are very good. Potato salad is too sweet tasting.

    Smothered Chicken is off the chain. Love the spicy greens too and the mac n cheese is homemade good. The potato salad is good but it's too sugary.

    Update: Owner says backflow was kitchen sewage, not toilet sewage, limited to small area, and blamed the problem on a plumber clearing a dishwasher drain as inspectors walked in. Passed reinspection

    Owner of Carolina Kitchen in Largo denies health dept charge that workers were cooking while sewage backflow "all over the floor." Owners says it was small leak from kitchen drain and he'd just opened

    Food is amazing!!!! I need the manager to work as hard as the Chefs (no offense), but you have for to figure out the standing and waiting from both sides. We didn't order a side of "butt" w/our food!!

    My tip is to Carolina Kitchen in the Cap. Boulevard, find a bigger spot. You really have the best food in town but your spot is just to small. Stretch out a lil for your customers sake and more money.

    The whiting fish and cornbread are great but the sweet potatoes are overly peachy.

    (Ironically, lol) I'm really not a Soul Food fan, but CK's stuff is pretty good. The cornbread....the ribs...the cabbage....the fried fish. Not bad.

    Muslims stay away from the cornbread- it has lard in it all day!! The cabbage is fine but ask about other things if you're not sure.
