Reflector Reviews: Soul Food

Tucked away off the beaten path of South Main St. is a wonderful new spot where you can get mama’s home cooking without stepping foot outside of Statesboro.

Soul Food Restaurant, formerly known as Sisters, has recently gotten out from under the franchise to allow for more freedom to curate their own recipes. While they may not stick with “Soul Food Restaurant,” for the time being they are steadfast in their recipes for traditional southern food.

Just like your grandma does during the holidays, Soul Food loads your plate up, and you will not go home hungry. You’d best bring your appetite or be prepared to ask for a to-go box. The white meat fried chicken, one of their signature dishes, was juicy, which is not an easy feat, and the baked mac and cheese, dressing, and fried okra were all equally delicious.

Most food is made to order, so you know you are getting it all freshly fried and the desserts are also homemade, with the red velvet cake being to literally die for. The staff will also be sure to check on you frequently and make sure you have everything you could possibly need to have the best experience.
