This is a great place for groups or a cozy dinner for two. Bucket of chicken and the gumbo with the okra is a great choice for your first visit! My friend got a burger and it was delicious. Staff is friendly and the service is good. If you are solo the bar is a great place to sit, enjoy great food and the bartenders are very friendly. Give it a shot!

I can't believe no one has reviewed this place yet. (Lots of reviews of it on Yelp.) I used to live in SF and think it's a great restaurant town! I found this place on recent visits back. Nouveau California soul food. Great fried chicken. I haven't been in six months, so I don't remember details of what we ate last time, but its' all good. I was looking up the address here b/c I'm sending a friend an email with four restaurant recommendations in SF and this is one of them, for sure. There's also an amazing ice cream place nearby for desert, Mitchell's, with exotic flavors.

Pros: Great food. Fun atmosphere. Near outstanding ice cream parlor, Mitchell's

Cons: So-so neighborhood, not close to downtown.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! yes, its out there (bernal heights/outer mission) but so worth it.

They have an actual front porch with rocking chairs! How long has it been since the last time you say in a rocking chair on a warm night and drank a beer?

As for the decor insider.. think Caribbean soul mixed with 1950's American kitchen and you are close. Small, cozy, and packed! Very casual

The owner Kevin greeted our party of 3 by introducing himself and asking our names. The 30 minute wait was a pleasure due to aforementioned porch (and not bad for a Sat night at 9PM)

The meal itself was so fun! Our waitress was wonderful. She spent 10 minutes describing all her favorite dishes and by the time she walked away she had put together a family style 3 course dinner for us.

The Red Bean Coconut Soup, Fried Chicken (YUMMY!), and Homeade Plaintain chips and hot suace were the most memorable for me.

Desert is where it gets interesting. Our server treated us to an off-menu concoction or Fried Chocolate Toast. Having trouble visualizing this one? Think PB sandwich but with chocolate ganache and fried like french toast topped with caramel sauce and sweat cream. That's called nasty goodness!

This place is new, and was clearly bending over backwards to provide great service and make sure everyone in the place was having a great time. My Advice, Keep it up!

I highly recommend the trip out!

I will be back to this place for sure!
