Crenshaw District unknowns (to me, anyway)

Professor Salt | Feb 14, 200501:09 AM

Made a run to Stevies' on the Strip on Saturday for great gumbo, fried chicken, and braised short ribs. On the 3 mile stretch of Crenshaw from the 10 to Slauson Blvd, I noticed many, many restaurants of interest. Some of them I recognized, some I didn't.

So a couple questions:

Has anyone checked out these two I haven't heard of?
a) Mama's Place (a few doors down from the Cobbler Lady). White tablecloth, and prominent sign boasting "best soul food in town." In this part of town? Mighty big claim. Talk amongst yourselves.

b) 99 cent Soul Food Express (across from the latest Phillips BBQ, just south of Adams). Line out the door at 4pm. Any good, or just cheap?
