Hi does anyone know what is up with Mrs. Jones soul food in Dorchester?? I stopped by today and they were closed around 1:30 their neighbors said the have been closed for 3 days. So I was wondering if anyone knew what was going on, or did I miss a vacation notice. Thanks

    OMG, I really hope it's just vacation. I was there just a few weeks ago for a take out of ribs and sweet potato pie and nothing was mentioned about closing.

      Hopefully everything is alright. I know that the owner has had some serious health issues in the last year. They were closed for about a week earlier in the year due to her having surgery, as I recall.

        Good news, when I walked by this afternoon, Mrs Jones was open and doing a bustling business.

          oh phew! that's good to hear. I was wondering as well - tried a week and a half ago and she had closed very early (like 6:00) and then again on friday and the place was dark at about 6:30. Glad to hear they were back open (sundays are usually a big day for them especially during football season).

          I havent been there for a month, but its not unusual for them to close early, like at 6 but 1:30 is too early.

          I sure hope both George and Cheryl are ok. They are lovely people.
