After telling my daughter about House of Soul and how great it was for lunch we decided to go there for dinner. She was a little taken back by the decor and how cold it was inside, but I assured her the food was great and would be worth it. We arrived at 5:15 and were the only “sit-down” customers there. After waiting a little over an hour for our food, I watched in horror as the owner dropped one of our ribs on the floor, picked it up and placed it on our plate. Needless to say, we left.
During this time, we watched customer after customer pick-up take out food and with the waitress only once coming over and apologized about the slow service. I felt the cook was just ignoring us. I Hate to think it was because we were the only Caucasians there.
Anyway, after leaving and still hungry, we discovered another place on Sonoma Blvd called Garcia’s BBQ. The service was much better and the pork ribs were good but a little on the fatty side. The cornbread was great and chicken tender and tasteful. The sauce is served on the side. Overall pretty good, Not great but better then we expected.
I just don’t know if I will go back to HOS again, it was very disappointing and felt uncomfortable
