    It's slightly overpriced for the quality, amount and presentation of the food you get.The southern/soul food idea is one of a kind in Wellington.Too bad the interior doesn't reflect it. Staff is rude

    Pies and iced teas are gorgeous. However apparently they intentionally burn their beignets black? So don't go in expecting them fluffy and golden.

    I recommend the chicken basket with curly fries. The staff were friendly past time I was there. I prefer going there for lunch in the middle of the week since they are not very busy then.

    Usually packed out therefore hard to get a seat and decent wait times but well worth the trouble. Fantastic food!

    Quite often they're full but it's worth a short wait. I'd recommend the Triple H burrito or Chicken in a Basket. For dessert you can't go past the homestyle Apple Pie.

    Quite a wait for a table. Jambalaya was worthy. Beignets were heavenly, though must have coffee to dip them in. Heaps of American food choices from the menu.

    Awesome home-style kai influenced by New Orleans and Mexico. Their curly fries are pretty choice + if it's busy they'll txt you when your table is ready so you can go grab a drink nearby.

    Best chimichanga in Wellington! But if (like me) you don't like eggs, don't come before 11:30, because the breakfast menu has very few non-egg options.

    Tip for solo diners - if it's full, sit at the counter. It might not be as roomy as a table, but you'll never be short of a coffee.

    No matter what you order, make sure you round it out with a basket of curly fries and a jug of margaritas.
