    The fried chicken is simply incredible, possibly outdone only by the smothered pork chops which were among the most delicious thing I've ever eaten! The chicken fried steak was also good.

    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.

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

    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

    The chicken fried steak sandwich was about the same amount of meat as the entree, with one less side and nearly half the price. Get the sandwich.

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

    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.

    Smothered porkchops. Smothered porkchops. Smothered porkchops. Within walking distance of Chase Field. There's 4 good reasons to try Mrs. White's.

    If you come later in the day, beware: they might be sold out. No cornbread or pork chops. How the hell do you sell out of cornbread?!?

    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.
