I've never ordered delivery from here, so I'm not sure if some of the harsh reviews here have a basis in reality. However, I have eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. Every customer gets two hot, sweet biscuits to start off. The combo platter (especially at lunch) is the best deal I think. You get two meats and 2 sides, and the portions are huge! Last time I went I had the pulled pork and ribs with collard greens and yams. The collard greens especially were braised really well and had a great flavor. Even though the ribs weren't "fall off the bone," they tasted great and the smokiness of the pulled pork went together nicely with the sweetness of the yams. If you go for lunch, then you can usually get your food in about 5-10 minutes after ordering, and the one time I went for dinner it took about 20 minutes. You should definitely give this place a try if you want a good, satisfying meal.

We ordered from here tonight b/c we do love the food - and we ordered on the early side b/c they tend to take long to deliver. However, when over an hour passed and still no food, we called to see what happened. They were rude, didn't offer anything, and couldn't tell us when our food would be here. At an hour and half, we canceled the order b/c it was just too late! I will never order from here again.

We absolutely love this place. The beef ribs, the crawfish and the catfish are our favorites. The atmosphere isn't fantastic, they keep it way too bright. But we get delivery all the time and it's the best BBQ we've found in NY.

They took over two hours to deliver, and we called two times, and both times they were extremely incompetent.

Over charred ribs, and average fried chicken. Have had way better bbq than this place, and at better prices. I was really excited about going, but I was not impressed with the food at all.

I will never be able to eat ribs any place else. The best!

Rack & Soul has the BEST FRIED CHICKEN and PULLED PORK ever! Their mac and cheese is just ok, but the cole slaw and collards are lovely. The service is not warm or welcoming, but just delivering food to the table if they aren't distracted by the large screen t.v. that's playing over the bar. Have an Abita Lager and enjoy or do what we do and get it to go. BTW the Red Velvet cake is outstanding.
