Fodor's Review

Sure, it's awfully far north to be specializing in down-home Southern cooking, but this bustling, casual spot on Tacoma's north side, a little west of Wright Park, serves remarkably authentic and absolutely delicous soul food. In the morning, regulars swing by for heaping plates of chicken-fried steak with grits and eggs, or homemade biscuits and gravy. Later, move on to fried catfish strips with a side of hush puppies, Texas-style hand-trimmed brisket, and hot-links sandwiches.

Dinners come with corn cakes and lots of tasty sides—and do save room for the sweet potato pie. Note that the restaurant closes on the early side most evenings, usually around 8 pm.
