"Florence Jones has been running this soul food joint for 67 years. She’s known for her Yam Fried Chicken, a dish she created. To make it, Florence coats fried chicken in a candied yam sauce, and serves the chicken with a side of yams and stewed collard greens. Another standout is the Fried Pork Ribs."

"It truly felt like I had sat down at my grandmother's kitchen table for lunch. The green beans were fresh not frozen, the salad is clearly made fresh (loved the fresh mushrooms!). My chicken and dumplings was made with whole chicken."

"You need to know that all chicken and dumplings are compared to my Grandma Lambert's. These were some of the best I've had in a restaurant."

"Oh my goodness, this food is amazing. Ordered fried chicken, catfish and liver. They gave us a bunch of extra sides. Green beans, mashed potatoes, corn and Mac and cheese. Covid curbside pick up was good!  I will go back."

— Larry H.

"Breakfast here is beyond amazing. The people make it so enjoyable to just eat and converse with the company you're with. The food is overwhelmingly delicious and more than enough to take home. They cook the food in front of you and the restaurant feels like going into a home with Sunday breakfast being served."
