    The food is delicious. Been here on 3 occasions and have never been disappointed with the food. The jury is still out on the service. I've only had great service on a weekday. 😕

    Fried chicken with sweet tea in the batter!! So delicious. And the banana pudding and sticky toffee desserts were phenomenal!

    The shrimp and grits are amazing. Also try the Mac and cheese. Can't go wrong with cheese grits. Highly recommended.

    Upscale take on southern food. They mostly do walk-ins, so getting there early is key to avoiding long waits. Known for their fried chicken

    Biscuits are small yet insanely tasty. They come two per order. Don't forget to get a good dip in the chicken jus.

    Their gluten free fried chicken and biscuits are unbelievable. Best I've ever had, hands down. Not exaggerating.

    Everything was amazing. Biscuits melt in your mouth. Ribs have a good kick, and the pot pie is huge. Share everything so you don't miss out!

    Restaurant week: Chicken and waffles, salad, biscuit, both sides and both desserts were great. Drink included with dinner for restaurant week. The restaurant is small.

    Might be the best fried chicken in the East Village. Try the mini waffles and half a bucket. Also, they make a Bloody Mary with your choice of liquor.

    Amazing! Get the chicken & waffle + grandma's angel biscuits + strawberry shortcake (pictured). Do NOT get the deviled eggs.

    This place is good not great - but definitely worth a visit if you've never been. Do the chicken waffle sandwich and the deviled eggs for sure. Skip the shrimp and grits.

    Quite possibly the best fried chicken I've had - full of juicy flavour right through the white meat. And those biscuits!

    Mac n Cheese is to die for. Cute staff. Very attentive very friendly. I could skip the chicken waffle sandwich though.

    Grandma's biscuits are heavenly and two per order. Peach salad was okay. Chilled watermelon was good but could be spicier. Fried chicken is bomb. 🍗

    Had fried chicken and Mac&cheese here 3-4 years ago and it was fantastic. I revisited this weekend and was disappointed by the same dishes. Go to Blue Ribbon for your fried 🍗 hankerings instead

    Wow, that's some good fried chicken! It's worth trying other food, but you will need to do so in multiple trips, because you will fill up fast.

    Waited 45 minutes on a Sunday but it was totally worth it. We got the half bird and the mix of sweet tea brine and lemon made for a unique refreshing taste. Shrimp grits were solid but a bit salty.

    Fried chicken and cheddar buckwheat waffles so good. Skip the pork belly bacon. The shrimp and grits were also surprisingly delicious!

    The mac & cheese is perfectly indulgently gooey, and yet, al dente. The fries are as good as I've ever had. I just wish the waffles had slightly more crisp to their exterior.

    Flawless fried chicken. Insanely good Mac and Cheese. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Worth the wait.

    The wait for dinner gets pretty ridiculous (2 hrs for 2 people on a Saturday), but they had the best shrimp n' grits I've ever had. Too bad they don't take reservations as the space is tiny.

    The fried chicken and mac and cheese was delicious. Ask for some tabasco honey with your chicken, best combination ever. Definitely worth the wait.

    Amazing food, friendly service and the counter area is lovely. Generous portions: I suggest sharing a half bucket of chicken, a salad, and ma&cheese.

    Amazing waffles (light, fluffy, perfect consistency). Ridiculously juicy fried chicken. Get a bucket of rosé while you're at it...

    If you can, get seats at the bench in front of the kitchen to see, smell and chat to the very friendly chefs about all the delectables coming out of the kitchen.

    Possibly best fried chicken in NYC? Very juicy and tender for frying an entire chicken. Great cocktails and ambience as well.

    Bob White meets Northern Spy. Food is good but I'd have to say the waffles were the highlight. I'll be returning to my old favorite BW for my friend chicken fix from now on.

    Fried chicken was just right, I don't want to complain about the lack of breading, because I'm sure it was just that 'batch' the meat was fantastic!

    Charming place that's bigger than it appears. Chicken and waffles were very filling and very good. So so Mac and cheese. Spiked Sweet tea didn't seem to be very spiked.
