Martha Lou's Kitchen

Martha Lou's Kitchen Review

You may not delight in the decor—vinyl booths repaired with duct tape and walls muddled with old photographs—but for those venturing inside Martha Lou's Kitchen, a bit of Charleston heritage awaits. Of course, the chicken, perfectly cooked to golden brown, and those fried pork chops aren't bad, either. Martha Lou Gadsden has made her pink cinder-block building into a palace of soul food, serving some of the city's finest. The tireless octogenarian works all day, preparing collard greens, giblet rice, lima beans, and, yes, even chitterlings. Just a chat with Miss Martha Lou is enough to make the trip worthwhile.
