Southern
The term “soul food” didn’t become common until the 1960s. With the rise of the civil rights and black nationalist movements during the 1960s, many Black Americans sought to reclaim their part of the American cultural legacy. As terms like soul brother, soul sister and soul music were taking hold, it was only natural that the term soul food would be used to describe the recipes that Black Americans had been cooking for generations. Soul food is basic, down-home cooking with its roots in the rural South. Where the conversations are long, food is cooked slow and the drinks are cold and sweet. To many, all that just sounds like a description of Southern food. The distinctions between Soul & Southern are hard to make. While all Soul food is Southern food, not all Southern food has Soul. Soul food & Southern food cooking are examples of how great Southern cooks cooked with what they had available to them. Suckerfree will always pay homage to both traditions and remain loyal to the soil. SF

    It was closed! No notification. No signage. Just…closed. I think it’s still in operation, but you couldn’t have proven it by the looks of the place. DON’T TAKE RESERVATIONS IF YOU ARENT GOING TO BE OPEN!!!!

    Father’s Day out of 8 dishes 4 were sent back, so bad the waitresses offered a huge discount, which we declined, but she did it anyways. Great front house service, opened late on Father’s Day very short staffed

    Our experience would have been 5 stars, but our waitress seemed to have a teeny tiny bit of an attitude.

    I made 6:30 reservations, thinking that would be plenty of time to eat and arrive at the theater directly across the street by 7:30. We placed our order right away, but at 7pm we still didn't have our appetizer. We told the waitress that we needed to leave in 20 minutes- she expressed that they only had one person in the kitchen, and that there was no way our food would be out in time. We left without eating- and sat through a three-hour show starving. Additionally, they have no beer on tap even though the taps are there and on the menu. Unfortunatley, I think this is a sinking ship. It's sad to see- we have eaten here several times in the past and enjoyed it.

    Quality of food just does not match up with price point. Drinks are watered down.

    This is a really cool place with a great menu! Unfortunately we dined on a bad night for them lots of service issues didn’t get our dinner order in time after waiting over an hour. Had to cancel it and we’re on our way to a show. Would love to try this place again but it was super disappointing.
