I have to eat here only once every month .. ONLY because if not I’ll be there everyday! SOO GOOOOD
This is the place to go when your wife, husband, mom or anyone didn’t cook! Best food in New Britain!
This place is phenomenal every time We come . I get the boneless chicken dinner with 2 sides . Believe me when looking at the sides I want a 3 rd side but knowing how portions are on the larger side , I stick with the 2 sides and it's waaaay plentiful! The boneless chicken has just the right seasonings and tender just wonderful. I also get the collards every time they are melt in your mouth good with plenty of hocks . I happen to get the sweet potato this time and that was really good to. My husband gets the wing dinner which is 4-5 lg wings , he raves about them , The Mac and cheese is creamy and good also . You get a square of corn bread that has a touch of sweet to it . Trust when you walk out you will be smiling. Great meal . I personally like the decor and ambiance in here . Very comfortable . We will be back for sure. 5 stars to the chef and the people who work there to bring all together!--Cherri D.
I'm so happy I found a great Soul Food spot. I don't care that I have to drive 20mins. I been here 2 times and both times I enjoyed it. Their food is so delicious. I had the fried chicken, Mac & cheese, collard greens, corn bread & banana pudding is to die for. Everything was delicious. The chicken is so crispy and juicy. The Mac & cheese is so cheesy and tasteful. Now the collard greens. I never ate that till I came here. It was on point. I also love the fact the owner himself spoke to us and welcomed us with nothing but smiles. A week after his restaurant had opened. I always recommend them to all my friends and so far they have been pleased themselves. Kudos to ya.--Chantel E.
If I could give them 10 stars I would . Absolutely good seasonings on the food and those collars greens are just how they are supposed to be . When I first walked in I was surprised on how spacious it is . With two comfy couches in the store front that is perfect to sip some of their Kool-aid (blue /red) . It is nicely sweet . Easy to order process with chicken or fish options . Plates starting around 11.50 with a la carte options . I met the owner briefly he was very pleasant.
I ordered a boneless wings meal with Mac n cheese and collard greens . The meal took around 10 minutes it was fairly busy (2pm Friday) . The taste of the chicken(tender) was flavorful and nice crisp to it. They give you five which is plenty ( full off of two). The Mac was really good !!!! They also sell blue or red Kool-aid and it does not disappoint !!!! Definitely going again. --Dawn H.
