I took some friends to Ms. tootsies this past weekend for their first time. Even though I've been there a few times before this time was unbelievably outstanding. My friends and I were so pleased with everything...from the food to the service to the great ambiance. The fried chicken here is straight from the south, their mac n cheese is so cheesy and delicious and their candied yams are right from my mothers kitchen. I can't say enough good things about this place...you have to go here and experience it for yourself. I also just found out that they are open 7 days a weeks which makes me very happy yet nervous at the same time because I am trying to watch my weight.

Visited on Valentines day,First they werent taking reservations,the place was on the brink of chaos. A waiter took our names and number told us it would be 45 min. to an hour,and we could wait up in the bar area. An hour and 45 min. later I find the host and its a women who has a list without us on it. We get seated at a table not set. A waitress comes by 30 min after we are seated. The food is GREAT the service is good on most visits. Dont think they expected the amount of people.WHY I DONT KNOW.

Talk about the nicest people. You thought people in Disney World and Vegas were nice, well then You'll love Ms. Tootsie's. The service there is on the ball. You will never get angry at the waiters and waitresses because there will be nothing to get mad at them about. They deliver a great service, on time and always with a smile. I haven't seen anyone who looked like they didn't want to be there. And their food is absolutely tasty! I especially enjoyed the lime chicken. I didn't think such a combination was possible and here Ms. Tootsie's goes and turns this odd idea into a divine dish!
