    The teriyaki salmon is incredible. A MUST! Can't go wrong w/ anything here though. Mac & cheese & greens are great as well.

    Good service. Food was great good portions. I enjoyed the sampler while I waited for my meal and that was on the money. However it is a bit pricey

    $60 for 3 dinners?! We coulda sat down at a "nice" restaurant! Living Social Deal be damned. The potato salad is a winner, though.

    I had the fried wings, catfish and green beans. The wings were delicious. The catfish and green beans were not impressive. I plan to return to try some other items.

    Parking is a b...and when one of the car passengers opened the door a man on a bike smacked into it..is it worth it? Probably...the cat fish is great as well as the mac & cheese and sweet potatoes.

    wings still had hairs/feathers. Mac n cheese was cheesy but bland-had to put hot sauce for flavor. Greens were good. Peach cobbler wa loke brea pudding. Sorry Guy- DDD fail!

    The teriyaki wings were excellent. I'll say that much. The food is sloppily handled and poorly displayed. The service seems "reluctant" at best. Servers on cell phones much?

    Definitely over-priced, and late night everything gets priced even higher. Soul food shouldn't cost $20 a plate. That said, Mac 'n cheese is really great, as are collards, wings, and fried chicken.
