After years of unpredictable meals at Miss Mamie’s Spoonbread Too, Ora grudgingly gave the joint another shot–and was blown away. Smothered chicken, deeply flavorful down to the bone, was the star of an overflowing platter of freshly prepared, piping-hot soul food. Also delicious: cabbage and macaroni and cheese. “Perhaps they have a new chef? Maybe it was an ‘on’ night?” Ora speculates. “All I know is that I will be back.” emu02, fresh from two successful visits in recent months, recommends ribs, shrimp, just about all the sides, and banana pudding for dessert.

Sister restaurant Miss Maude’s has also been up and down, but a recent order of first-rate greens and mac and cheese suggests it’s once again up, says Uptownflavor.
