Fodor's Review

No-frills soul food is what you can find at this friendly eat-in/take-out place where the price is right and the food is delicious. Ultrarich macaroni and cheese, succulent baked chicken, and smoky-sweet short ribs just beg to be devoured. Collard greens are mercifully cooked with vinegar and sugar rather than the traditional salt pork—this may leave your stomach room for banana pudding. Smack in the middle of the U Street area, the place is both a neighborhood hangout

and destination for those missing the perennial dishes that Mama always made best.
