Fodor's Review

This Harlem mainstay has been serving soul-food favorites like smothered chicken, barbecue ribs, collard greens, and mashed potatoes to a dedicated crowd of locals, tourists, and college students since 1962. Owner Sylvia Woods may have passed away in the summer of 2012 but her restaurant and the signature sauces that are jarred and sold online and in the restaurant are more popular than ever. Some say it's overly touristy—and the bus loads attest, but it's still an experience.

For the ultimate, come for Sunday gospel brunch. Singing and eating were never a more delicious combination.
