Nellie's 7.13.11, updates?

I plan on going to Nellie's in Oakland today for their Wednesday daily special of oxtails. I haven't been in a few months and haven't read any reports. Still the same - good main course items, mediocre sides and usually slow service? Uphill, downhill?

  1. Not as good as it used to be. The oxtails were roasted with a thin gravy swished over them. Good, but not enough to return for. Portion seemed small as well. The greens were good too, chopped fine, a little flat. Yams sweet as candy but good scooped on the corn muffins. The deep fried porkchops were not worth the health dangers. Thin and the batter tasted slightly fishy, likely from shared oil. Too bad - for the first time, we actually had good service! 2 dinners with sides, 1 soda, about $33.
