I have eaten at this branch of Miss Mamie's several times over the years. When I think of soul food, honestly, I seldom think of going there. In the past I thought the food was just OK, sometimes good.
Last night, I was hungry, and I had no particular place in mind. I happened to drive by Miss Mamie's and thought why not, it has been a while. I ordered the smothered chicken, mac & cheese and cabbage. I was served an over-flowing plate of wonderful smelling, freshly prepared, piping hot food. And the taste was--DELICIOUS!! Everything on my plate was well-seasoned and well-cooked. While all of the dish components were quite tasty, the chicken was the clear stand out--deeply flavorful--to the bone. This was one of the best homestyle meals that I have had in restaurant in a good while. All of the flavors were just right for what it was.
Perhaps they have a new chef? Maybe it was an "on" night? All I know is that I will be back, and soon!
