    Gospel brunch is a nice experience; the singing is entertaining. Food is overrated -- southern fried chicken is dry.

    No no. Go to the Red Rooster instead, much better quality. Unless you go for quantity, then Sylvia's offers more for less money

    Let's start off by talking about the collard greens. So perfectly cooked. Then there's the mind blowing corn bread. I would come back for that alone. The fried catfish is crispy and flavorful.
