Looking for some good soul food in Iowa...

Uprooted Southerner | Dec 16, 2002 01:39 AM

I've lived in southern Arkansas my whole life and just recently moved up to Iowa City because they say people around here know a thing or two about writing!

The problem is, I can't find anywhere to get some good soul food! I'm just looking for a place where the atmosphere is slow and easy and the food is made by people who care about what they serve. Anywhere within ~100 miles or so of Iowa City would be perfect.

Barbecue, crawfish (man I would love some crawfish if anyone cooks it around here), collard greens...that kind of scene. Any ideas or recommendations would be great.
