    Absolute Best

    I grew up in Georgia and lived in Texas, so I know something about Southern Food. In addition, I've eaten eveywhere that you can think of - Pink Tea Cup, Maroon's, Londel's, Sylvia's, Shark Bar, Brother Jimmy's, Blue Smoke, etc. If you're looking for the best southen food in New York ... THIS IS IT! It's so good, I almost guarantee that you will make another trip the very next day after your first visit, just like I did.

    Possibly the best food I've ever eaten. Perfect fried chicken glazed with honey, candied yams and perfect macaroni and cheese. I can't reccomend it highly enough.

    I always ate turkey wings as a child. Then when I came to Amy Ruth's and saw smothered turkey wings on the menu, I was so excited. They are definitely to die for and very rare to find on any menu. The mac and cheese was so chessy and well--seasoned. The waiter was extremely friendly and the restuarant has a nice homey feel. I would recommend to anyone who wants some slamming food. Head to Amy Ruth's!

    Amy Ruth's - A Must!

    You haven't eaten soul food until you've eaten at Amy Ruth's. The smothered turkey wings are to die for. The mac & cheese is the best (lots of cheese). They don't skimp on the portions either! Amy Ruth's is a must on your next visit to New York

    The Waffles

    I was brought to Amy Ruth's just the other day by a close friend. My first impression was that though it is very clean and well lit it is also a bit cramped. The service was fair. The one thing theyve got going is the food. Wow. You, dear reader, have not eaten waffles until youve had them at this place. No better yet you dont eat their waffles, you experience them. Mouth watering. Im willing to catch the Metro North for the hour long ride any day of the week to hit that place up again for the waffles. The chicken was superb but hey every item on their menu simply hopes to bask in the glory which is the waffle.

    Now That's what's up!

    Summer vacationing to see The Color Purple, we ate at Amy's. I live about as far south as you can get (Houston). I'm 6'4.5 and 310, so I am no stranger to good food. Sorry Roscoe, but that chicken and waffles at Amy's with a side of greens was soooo good, We had to come back the next day and the day after that for more. I had it both fried and smothered; I prefer smothered. Chased it down with a juice mix called a sunrise. Don't think I'll ever have chicken and waffles that good again. I'm still feining for another hit! And thats whats up!

    I went Amy Ruth's for my 40th birthday last week while shopping in New York. I heard all the goodness from the Steve Harvey morning show. We drove from 28th and Broadway all the way to Harlem to see what the hype was about. I thank the Lord we did. I had Fried Chicken and Waffles. That was definately the best I've ever tasted and I know good food. My daughter Carrie had Fish, Macaroni & Cheese and Yams. That was great as well. They even had Kool-Aid on the menu. That's the first time I've ever saw Kool-Aid on any menu. That was a plus for me because I love Kool-Aid, it was just right not too sweet and not too sour. The price was very inexpensive about $45.00 for 3 meals and 3 glasses of Kool-aid and the portions were very healthy. I ordered a take out platter for my husband, brought it all the way back to Philly. He is very, very funny about his food and to my suprise he really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had to use the ladies room while dining in the restaurant. The ladies room was very spacious, nice and CLEAN. I've been to many restaurants in NY and never experienced a bathroom so clean and fresh. I've always gone to Sylvia's, Shark Bar and Copeland's for soulfood and none can compare. I now have a new soul food restaurant. Keep up the good work.
