Lonely Planet review

Some of DC’s best soul food is on offer at this barebones U St joint popular with everyone from the homeless to sports superstars. The down-home Southern cooking comes in plentiful portions; it’s hard to walk away from the fish platter with some mac ‘n’ cheese and greens without being filled up, unless you’re some kind of human trash compacter. The clientele is very much made up of the U St that was before this part of town became gentrified.
