Southern / Soul Food Restaurant
“My family love's this restaurant. We always have a great time, the wait staff is full of personality and the food is always spot on. The Brunch menu is a great deal and includes a drink, coffee or tea, and entree. The Kid's menu is perfect and just the right amount of food. This is a popular spot and they do not take reservations. Arrive early on a warm Brooklyn day or sit outside on their patio. ”
