The food was ok and the service was really good. I'm surprised no one has posted about their 22% surcharge. I asked if the surcharge is for credit cards since I was paying cash and was told it's for the dishwasher since they hand wash everything. The waitress also shared she doesn't get a share of the 22% so her tip is separate. This is something that I've never heard of and should have been disclosed as soon as we came through the door and not when being given the bill.
I'm feeling this place out... The meal was very nicely presented. Was not a long wait to get my order. Personable management, something absolutely has to be done with the rickety tables tho.
Excellent fried chicken! Very crispy, meaty, and juicy! The Mac n cheese was also top shelf. I will definitely be coming back. Credit to the cook's mom who provided the chicken recipe!!
FOOD TASTE DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MACARONI AND CHEESE TASTE LIKE ITS OLD SO SALTY, TASTE LIKE OLD BACON THE CHICKEN TASTES OLD AND HUGE LEGS! I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY!!
My friend & I had been wanting to try this place for a while, but we never seemed to catch them when they were open. One day a few weeks ago, we randomly drove past 5 minutes before close. I pulled over & we ran inside. While the kitchen was already closed, the staff graciously agreed to fire up the kitchen & prepared us what they had on hand. We had the chicken & fish platters & an assortment of sides - mac & cheese, collard greens, yams and cornbread. Thank you Mark for accommodating us! We'll definitely be back for a proper sit-down dinner.
First let me start by saying the people who served us were awesome! They were attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious reminded me of my grand momma cooking and they offer breakfast! I will be returning. Last but not least the bathroom was clean, like very clean and they had the good soap. Best soulfood place I have been to in a while.
The food was ok, the portions are nice. We thought our taste buds would be wowed, but it just wasn't what we hoped for flavor wise. Same for the peach cobbler. We placed our order over the phone and service was nice.
Absolutely incredible. my family and I visited this restaurant for the first time following my grandfather's home going service.Not only was the food top tier, fresh and well seasoned, Marks energy was fun and comforting. The fried turkey wings were amazing, potato salad 10/10, the ribs were falling off the bone and the Mac and cheese ? perfection?Thank you
The service was great with a warm smile. The food was so to delicious. You have to check it out. I will be going back real soon.
My husband and I are very new to the area and decided to try The Soul Food Factory and oh my lord we are so glad that we did! That food was ohhhhhhh so good! The first thing I tried was the Mac n cheese because we all know that everyone can’t make Mac n cheese correctly lol. They are 100% APPROVED! from the Mac to the yams to the corn bread and those fall off the bone turkey wings …whewww yes we sure shall be going back!
I love this soul food restaurant and will look no further. It’s my 2nd time eating here and the food is amazing. The cook/owner John is such a sweet heart. I struggle with emotional illness and were having a moment today. John took the time to talk to me, offered me some wine and made me feel so optimistic and ready to tackle life. He had no idea how much better he made me feel. I did a root canal yesterday and expressed to John I had not eaten all day. He cooked my fish platter soft as he promised and I was able to finally eat. I wish John and his business the best of luck. Please support this black owned business!
Food was good and the guy taking orders was very nice. Wish they were open to dining in. Looks like it has a nice ambiance from what I could see.
I love this place. Amazing food & staff. This is my go to place for soul food, they are least likely to not answer or be out of food. lol :) I will defiantly continue to support this business.
If you want soul food, look no further. Each time I need my soul food fix I ask my husband to order from here. Food is reasonably priced. I love the catfish, mac&cheese and the calabash which is a cabbage/collard green mix (so yummy). My husband loves their oxtails with rice and cabbage. The corn bread is always perfect! The staff is friendly and management is great. They’re a family owned business and I wish they had more locations in the tri-state area but they provide catering so if you’re having an event soon, I’d definitely give them a call. I can’t wait until they reopen for indoor dining. They’re only providing takeout for now.
Currently take out only. The food is amazing and delicious. They are so fast and efficient.Be careful if you get the grits because they are HOT!!
