Three words: sweet potato cornbread. I haven't cleaned my plate of an entire meal in a long time, and I almost embarrassed myself by licking it clean. I got the yard bird smothered in gravy and those greens were to DIE FOR. Sorry for no picture of that plate - I finished it before I had the thought to document.

They don’t allow you inside without a mask even though the mask mandate has been released. Although we informed the hostess we had our vaccinations (even papers to prove it) that was not acceptable. Unfortunately we didn’t get the opportunity to eat here. Decided to eat somewhere else due to this.

This place is so cool, yet the menu is boring. The atmosphere was great. Perfect for an evening meal. However, the menu wasn’t extensive at all. It seemed that the wait staff was stretched beyond their capacity. I would’ve loved to have …

Food was pretty good. 5/21/2. The mask mandate is over but so we didn’t have a mask. We had to go buy one to get in. They wouldn’t let us in without one and said they wouldn’t provide one ???? customer service really isn’t great. I had …

I was NOT disappointed! The spicy collard greens were delicious! We ordered the lunch box, with a side of fried okra and pork rinds(yes homemade pork rinds)! The staff was nice and Covid 19 precautions were enforced! Best restaurant of the trip! Sweet Potatoes never disappoints!

This restaurant is a gem! The food is outstanding. The atmosphere compliments the great service we received. The chef was also nice enough to sign the book we purchased that included plenty of great recipes. I especially loved the Mambo Chicken!

Food and service was very good. James took good care of us. The ribs were tasty. The smothered yard bird were a notch lower than the ribs yet good. I would recommend some hot sauce for the ribs to add just a little bit of flavor.

Fantastic southern food!! The sweet potato cornbread was amazing as an appetizer (the place is called Sweet Potatoes so you gotta try it!) and then my meal was very nice! Great food that was very filling but also fancy. Went here for a nice dinner before going out around downtown and it made for the start of a great night!

We ordered the Fresh Pork Rinds, Fried Green Tomato & Okra Basket, Fried Chicken & Waffles and Sweet Potato Biscuits. The service was very slow and needs improvement but the food was Delicious. I will definitely be back for more Chicken & Waffles.

Delicious! My salmon nicoise was so good and unusual - more like a New Orleans muffuletta style take on the dish. My friend was completely taken with her fried chicken and sweet potato biscuit. We are definitely returning. Service was outstanding as was the cool atmosphere.

This place is always packed! A line down the street and its worth every minute waiting! Order your dessert first because they will run out before the end of the day! You'll be dreaming about it later! The food is absolutely incredible...the fried chicken is soooo good and the fried pork skins come crackling to the table!

Everything we ordered here was amazing!!!!! I enjoyed our whole dining experience, from the time we walked in till the time we left. My mom and I were visiting my uncle in Durham and we traveled to Winston-Salem to do some sightseeing. My uncle highly recommended that we go to dinner at this restaurant.

You know it’s a great restaurant when you always have to wait for seats to open up, and the wait is worth it. True southern dishes with great flavors. I especially enjoy the Shrimp & Grits as well as their Chicken & Waffles. They also have a full bar with an awesome selection. Parking can be a challenge and waiting area is small.

The food was ok. Nothing to do flips over. Wasn't a terrible experience but it wasn't the best either. Our server Deneen was good. The burger was not prepared as requested. Therefore, the person in my party who ordered it had to wait a good minute for it to be prepared as requested.

Limited menu that was not posted on website. Sweet potatoe stuffing was extremely dry. Pork chop was OK. 3 cheese Mac and cheese only had the cheese on top. If made right could have been excellent. Bartender was excellent. Male waiter was not. Female waitress was great as well.
