Houston This Is It Soul Food Reviews
This was my first visit. I was really wanting some home-cooked food or like home cooked food so we decided to try. I was pleasantly surprised to learn of the restaurants history. While we were in line selecting our sides, the older lady waiting behind us told us the yams were delicious. Personally I don’t care for any candied yams in general but my husband did try them and liked them. I had the smothered chicken with gravy. When eating out I generally do not order a lot of starches, which is just my preference so for my sides I chose pinto beans, string beans and cabbage. They were all seasoned well yet not salty. I enjoyed my meal and will definitely try them again.
Food was decent – Loved the yams, but didn’t get excited over the cabbage. Fried chicken was decent but one of my pieces was really over cooked. The server was kind enough to give me a replacement piece plus one! My cocktail – a strawberry margarita (in styrofoam cup) was great. The tea cakes were very good (full of flavor & my favorite item of the day! Make sure your food is hot when you make your request cos some of mine was cold by the time I sat down to eat.
This restaurant was on my list of places to visit… and I wasn’t disappointed. The line was long upon entering the restaurant but the team worked fast to fill orders and take care of the customers. Everything looked so good and tasted even better! Put this spot on your list too!
Nope, never again! Food was bland!
Dressing resembled cat food. No spices, onion, bell peppers, meat, nothing! Just a brownish colored clump of nothing. Candied yams looked and tasted like they came straight out of a can. Fried fish was fried, dyed and laid to the side (light pink in some spots on the inside ). Cabbage was way undercooked and tasteless. My doberman caught the cornbread muffin in mid-air as I threw it his way (He’s still playing with it as we speak. The peach cobbler… well… just pray for it ♀
“This Is It” use to be the #1 soul food spot back in the day, not sure what happened, but “this ain’t it” today!
Friendly customer service. Great food. The “Ride for Freedom” bike riders at Tom Bass went here after our bike ride for lunch. The employees were very accommodating and give us a private room. I had the Friday special of fried catfish with 2 veggies for $10. Great bargain for a yummy meal and great customer service.
Was in town visiting my daughters & we came here. I’ve always said if you go to a restaurant & you can walk straight to the counter meaning there’s no line, LEAVE! I should’ve followed my own advice but I was trying to support black businesses. The food was just as nasty as the customer service. I ended up some roughly $150 just for my family & I not to like ANYTHING & have to go somewhere else. I had the ox tails for $30 & got nothing but bones & gravy. The macaroni was bland. The yams tasted like they came out a can. 1 daughter had ribs & they were thick & tough. I could go on & on but I’ll just say this save your money & go somewhere else or cook at home
Zero stars if I could. I ordered beef tips today and I received 90% fat. The Mac and cheese has no flavor and is watery. Disgusting. If you are from South Louisiana, like myself. Save yourself the trouble. This isn’t soul food, it’s more diner food.
I will be the first to say this is the worst soul food I’ve ever tried. I don’t even write reviews but because of the fact that I drove 40 minutes to try this food, I am furious. The mac & cheese taste exactly like water. The fish has no seasoning to it just cornmeal batter. The cornbread was so hard that I had to take it back because it was as if it was made three days ago. The yams taste like sugar but has no flavor when you bite into them. I’m writing this review to save others the trouble. Go to Mickey’s! I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed this food is trash. I couldn’t even finish it.
I order smothered pork chops which was dry/ over cooked. Everything else was good. I took one bite and couldn’t eat anymore that’s how tough it was. Went to change my meat. I guess that was a problem
This place here has that Real Soul Food. The service is Top Notch. I wore my Bears jersey and the owner had me laughing The Bears beat The Texans
20-23 everyone that came in was like no she didn’t wear that Bears jersey
