    This is the Bens Chili Bowl of Arizona. Ox Tails were to die for. Serious soul food aficionados only.

    I disagree with comments on yelp/google about staff being rude. They took their time, but were friendly and respectful. Dont come here in a hurry - just chill and sip koolaid until your order is up.

    There's nothing pretentious about the mac and cheese at this soul food staple. This straightforward side dish is good for those in search of something more traditional. Read more

    This expensive food sucks. I've never eaten such a dry, bland pork chop. Slow service and we didn't get our 2nd sides. Probably for the best. Yuck.

    Must've been a bad day. Catfish, black-eyed peas, and green beans WAY too salty to eat and I love salt. Cornbread and sweet potatoes were good, but probably won't go back. Pretty disappointed.

    Awesome greens, cornbread, blackeye peas, & green beans. They were out of chicken though. Also, you probably don't want to use the restrooms.
