A friend promised me authentic soul food last night and Hard Knox Cafe on 3rd street delivered!
I ordered pork chops with mashed potatoes and corn while he had the bbq ribs with red beans and rice and macaroni and cheese.
My only complaint? The mashed potatoes. I love mashed potatoes and even with gravy these were a bit on the dry side. Everything else? Excellent. And a bargain! Our bill was less than $25 for the food mentioned above and two lemonades. Entrees are $7-10 and come with 2 sides.
I wasn't sure where to go after Powell's closed. I think Hard Knox has filled the void.
