Portions were large. Staff was friendly. Pork chops were tough and mashed potatoes had unique flavor. Had to ask for metal utensils to cut food. We enjoyed the corn muffins.

Staff was friendly, eager to please. They went out of their way to help. Given good food, quality desserts, and was good pricing. Only issue was that their take-out line took up a lot of time, so food took time to arrive.!

I've had two trips to this restaurant. The 1st I had fried chicken. I enjoyed that meal and really enjoyed the sides (greens & yams). My 2nd was not as sucessful. I ordered smothered chicken. What I received was baked chicken with a pale blonde clear "gravy"ladeled over it. This dish is totally mis-named. The gravy was tasteless. It had... More

This place is small and crowded, but most times it is well worth the wait. The atmosphere is busy but not bad. I have tried lots of things on their menu and don't have a favor...it's all been good. Parking is nearby and the Majic Johnson theater is just a few steps away. Fun stop when you hanging out with... More

The food here is pretty good! It's very casual so you can come as you are. The wait staff is very friendly too.

If you're in need of some great tasting southern food, Carolina Kitchen is the place to go!! After the "welcome, welcome, welcome" at the door, you can select from a variety of delicious food. My favorite is the Meatloaf!!! Mmmmmm, absolutely delicious!!!

This spot is in Capital Centre and it's one of the few eateries in this outside shopping mall. I ordered the veggie plate (mac and cheese, collards and yams) and my husband ordered the crab cakes. The location is nice, but it's hot!! But the food is good and I'm from Texas, so I'm really particular on how I like... More
