I've got to put a plug in for #10 on this list - The United House of Prayer For All People. The cafeteria there has some of the best food you'll get in Charlotte

10 classic soul food restaurants in Charlotte - CharlotteObserver.com (http://www.charlotteobserver.com/508/story/988972.html - broken link)

Go early on Sunday's for the church service and you will see the best Praise Bands in the state.

A "plate" is usually a meat of some kind and two sides (like mac and cheeze and green beans) The desserts there are all home made too - YUM.

A plate of what??

BTW, greens are cooked with smoked turkey or some type of smoked ham. Never heard of chicken livers being used with greens.

I would vouch for Down to the Bone.
Simmons - ok
Floyds -- bleh
Chicken Box - Bleh bleh
Merts - bleh bleh blehhhhhhhh

I've heard good things about United House of Prayer but haven't nerved up enough to try one yet. ;-)


ETA: I heard a radio spot for Chicken Box today. Their special was a meat and two veggie sides. The announcer went on to list say "... like mac n cheese, black eyed peas..." I laughed at the thought that mac n cheese was considered a veggie or a side.

Another non-fan of Merts here. I work nearby, and only ate there once. Once.

My goodness gracious Kayak. I am a regular Wednesday morning and Saturday morning eater there. As many times as you have suspended me or deleted my postings, you should buy my next breakfast.
