Really liked the food here! Good variety, and you can easily eat healthily if you want. Only downside was lack of eco-friendly containers - would be willing to pay more for that.

This place is a soul food buffet style where you pay by weight. (6.49/pound) We were reccomended to come here by our tour guide from a free walking tour and it was one of the best decisions we made.From collared greens to jerk chicken this place had it all. The food was hot,fresh and had such rich flavours we wanted more. For tourists watch what the locals get as they know how to get the Best Buy for your money (taking bones off things, what the best food is,etc...). I Would also reccomend The sweet ice tea it is amazing after a long walk! (1.75 for a large plastic cup)

Came to Jacob’s for lunch and as usual they did not disappoint. They serve a medley of soul food from fried chicken to Mac and Cheese, Collard Greens to Sweet Potato pie to Banana Pudding. Everything here is great. Food is served a la carte & by the pound, so you can really get your money worth. I suggest the fried chicken, yellow rice & beans, Mac & Cheese & avocado salad. Casual dining experience & definitely worth it when in Harlem.

Love this place! Food is amazing, self service so you portion all your fav dishes yourself...wear elastic trousers!! Candied yams, collard greens and short ribs will get you coming back.

Note though: the area is a little less safe after dark. Please don’t let that stop you, but be sensible.
