Reviews for The Candied Yam

I always see it as a good sign of a restaurant has a limited menu aka we got a little bit of stuff but it's the best stuff. We had the veggie plate, meatloaf and fried chicken for the three of us during social distancing. Highlight of the service was the lady at the counter showing me each of the take out containers before I left the restaurant. I was told it would be about 15/20 minutes and it couldn't have been more than 5. The Mac n cheese had good flavor, dressing was full review

I use to love the soul food wrap when they first opened it came with a delicious muffin...that was the best thing on the menu.But over the years it has declined no more cabbage in it no more turkey and just taking away them ingredients has turned the wrap into trash..I took a break and came back and purchased 2 soul food wraps and I am not a fan anymore.. Deserts are delicious, but the one thing that they had no one else had is ruined

I gave this visit a 2 star only because my husband enjoyed his catfish and candied yams. I have visited this place previously at least 4 times over the last year. Today my food was very Balm, I ordered pork chops , collard greens , Mac and cheese.. I was very disappointed .. I’m thinking maybe they have a new cook .. this was my plate after I finished my meal ?the muffins are usually my favorite but today they wasn’t..
