Editorial review from Citysearch 12/7/2013

I never leave this place with out a s smile. Friendly, down to earth food band service. Holiday special had even the non-turkey eaters in the family passed out on the couch after a delicious turkey dinner. Yummy yams, best meatloaf in town. Hmm mmm. I'm going to have the fried chicken next.\r more

The Best Gumbo in Southern California 11/1/2008

I have going here for some time now. I keep coming back for the Gumbo, chicken bones so tender you can eat them, i dont even take them out of my mouth, just crew them up and swallow. The crab in it, real pieces of crad and not little ones, they just cut hole crabs in half on shove it in, All in all, I've ate alot of gumbo, but here in southern CA its the ""BEST"". That being said. I think I will go get some right now. Pros: Good down home cooking Cons: Run down building more

Great southern style cooking! Comfortable and friendly. 2/29/2008

My smothered pork chops were off the hook! I thought my mom was in their kitchen...I couldn't decide what to eat first between the collard greens, the yams or the rice and gravy. My sweetie got the red snapper and wings combo with red beans and rice and mac. He kept slapping my hand away because I was dipping in his plate! Everyone was really friendly and I could tell they had a lot of regulars...I'm definitely going to be a regular, too! more

A dump and a half! 12/27/2007

The atmposphere was dirty, dumpy and foul looking. There was one waitress and one cook working. There were 2 other customers waiting for their order. I ordered the country breakfast for $5.99. It included bacon, sausage, grits. eggs, fried potatoes and a biscuit. (No gravy). The waitress asked me how I wanted my eggs cooked. I replied ""poached-hard"". She said it couldn't be done because the cook didn't know how. I opted for scrambled. When I was served, the meat was fine. The potatoes were soggy and runny. The eggs were soggy, runny and had a strange smell. My water glass had some kind of white hairs stuck to the rim. I told the waitress. She said she didn't see anything. But, got me another glass of water anyway. I finished and left a mediocre tip to the waitress for refilling my coffee. That place is a dump and a half! They will not last much longer. I am sure there are better sould food or southern cooking restaurants that fare better in Long Beach or South LA. Never again! more
