Mitchell's Soul Food
Posted by lsr on 05/11/2012
I've lived around the corner for years and just recently discovered Mitchel's Soul Food on Vanderbilt. The food is authentic, generous and oh so delicious. Compared to restaurant prices on burgeoning Vanderbilt Ave., Mitchel's is amazingly underpriced! Unfortunately, while the owner and cooks are genuinely friendly, table service borders on hostile.

Food was on point! I went with my family, so I got to taste their meals as well and everything was good! Well prepared! The fried chicken was seasoned well!The gravy on my rice, excellent!!tasty! last but not least, the collard greens were good!! i love collards and not everyone's collards are good! but these were excellent! I will be returning soon! I know this doesn't have anything to do with this, but spike lee's sister was at the table next to me. lol

We order delivery from Mitchell's, but sometimes delivery isn't available. I can't explain why because the people who answer the phone are difficult to understand and come across as sullen. If you can get past the rude/poor phone service to get your order placed, and you're willing to roll the dice on delivery, this place has pretty good food.

Looks like what we've known for years has been discovered. Mitchell's is the best soul food in Brooklyn. The fried chicken is as good as grandma's and the sides are all authentic and home cooked. Eat in or take out - you can't go wrong.

I live in Harlem, sadly I have to drive way out to Brooklyn to get the most down home tasting food. Fried chicken is excellent. The prices are reasonable. Mitchell's is worth the drive over the bridge!

Superb soul food - extremely good sides. All the vegetables were better than in any of the BBQ places in Manhattan. The fried chicken was done perfectly - moist, tasty, with a great batter that was not too thick, not too salty.

My daughter is in college in New York and I come from South Jersey to go shopping and enjoy the day with her. We normally go Amie Ruths in Harlem for lunch or dinner. I ask her to find another soul food resturant in New York. She went to Yelp a restuant review website and read the review and Mitchell receive excellent reviews. Well we visted the Mitchell and the food was excellent and on the money. I had the fish dinner and my daughter had the shrimp dinner. The fish and shrimp was fresh not frozen which make a big differnce. the cabbage, potatoes salad, collard greens tremdous. the only thing will did not like was the corn bread. the atmosphere was not in tip top condition but we didn't care . the food was excellent. If you been to amie ruth and sylvia try this resutrant you will not be disappointed. I have a found a new soul food resturant to come to every time i visit new york
