I really like this place except the food took a very long time to get on the table.The server kept apologizing and said the cooks were changing shifts.One hour to get fried chicken--come on!!

I went using a promotional coupon--I think it was Amazon local. I was looking for some authentic soul food in Manhattan and had not really found any to my liking. I went to the shark bar AGES AGO and it was 0K but no standout star. I went to Sylvia's and it's disappoitning--You gotta use pork baby, you gotta use pork! So I've been hearing about this place and finally made my way over to the Harlem location on 135th and Lenox/MLK BLVD, and the food was really good, my expectations were met and I've been back since. I have found my GO2 soul food place!!! The BBQ ribs are a throwback! Nice and meaty, fall off the bone tender.

The food was worth the wait. But service was poor this time.

First, let me say the food is good; however, it's not good enough to compensate for the poor service. The first time I went the place was packed due to a deal. I thought that was the reason for the poor service. I went back a month later to give it a try again. This time the place wasn't even half full and yet the service was just as poor. We had to wait for menus each time, we didn't get our drinks until after our meal came, and they overcharged us twice. Maybe I would recommend this place as a takeout, but that's pushing it. They need better waiters and waitresses.

They should change their name to that.

What a neighborhood gem this place is! The soul food is authentic and delicious, the greens and chicken are highly recommended. Can't wait to go back

My mother-in-law, who is senior and has difficulty walking, wanted to go to Miss Mamie's this Saturday. We also had a child and an infant in our group. We arrived exactly at noon. The door was locked. We knocked, and the woman at the counter looked up at us, then back down. We knocked again. She looked up and made a "ten minutes" sign with her hands. At 12:10, we knocked but we could see no one, so we called. We explained we were outside in the heat with a senior citizen and an infant. We were told it would be another five minutes. At 12:15 we were allowed to come in and sit. It was just our table of 4, plus another table of 2 nearby. The woman who seated us promptly disappeared into the back. At 12:30 we were given menus. We ordered immediately, since we'd been reading the paper copies for the past half hour. At 12:45, we were given cornbread. It was good, I think--since we weren't given side plates, and it was very warm and crumbly, we tried to balance it in our hands to eat and it fell apart all over the table. Since the table was pretty sticky (as was the high chair and the regular chairs), we weren't going to pick the crumbs off the table to eat. At 1:00, I left since the food was nowhere near ready, and the baby needed a nap at this point. Many members of my family work in food and beverage. There is no excuse for being unable to serve food for over an hour after a restaurant's listed opening time. I could have easily cooked the same meal in an hour myself. Most restaurants will bring over extra bread, or at least apologize, after fifteen or twenty minutes. Your staff acted like over an hour wait was our fault for showing up so "early" when they weren't "ready." According to my family, the food, when it came, was adequate. However, they said it wasn't worth the price, let alone the unbelievable wait.
