    1. Mitchell's Soul Food on Vanderbilt is very solid.

      1. The Soul Spot on Atlantic Avenue near Smith Street might do you for. Open on Sundays:

          We ended up going to Mitchell's.....fantastic! I was trying to decide between Mitchell's and Ruthies as both are close but was really in a fried chicken mood....and read on another post Mitchell's was supreme, so that was where we went. EVERYTHING was great. Yams maybe a little sweet for my taste but everyone else loved them. Never had better greens....and I am from south. My SO adored the catfish; the ribs were saucy and tender, the black-eyes perfect, the mac and cheese FINALLY not too overly cheesy and runny. And that chicken....oh my....

            I also enjoy their short ribs, turkey wings and pig knuckles.

              I'm going to have to try Mitchell's again. Every time I went I found the food to be way too sweet, dry and bland. It's the reason why I venture out to Saratoga Kitchen and Fish & Wings.
