I tried Soul Fixins' for the first time today. I ordered the Fried Chicken with candied yams and mac n' cheese (my 2sides), red velvet cake, and iced tea. I enjoyed the chicken, candied yams, red velvet cake, and Iced Tea. The chicken was juicy, had lots of flavor, skin was crispy. The yams were sweet but not too sweet. I liked that they held their shape and were not mushy. The cake was moist. I loved the icing. The iced tea was refreshing. I did not like the Macaroni and Cheese or the Cornbread. The noodles were too soft for my taste and appeared not to be baked. The cornbread was hard some parts tasted burned and dry. All in all I would go back for the Fried Chicken but choose different sides and get the roll instead of cornbread.

My wife is from the South, so we are are constantly on the lookout for real Southern comfort food. Finding ourselves near Penn Station one evening we decided to try Soul Fix'ins. Arriving at night its location off Seventh Avenue was run down and unappealing. The "restaurant" is more like a take out joint with a few sad tables. The steam table in the back had the whole menu waiting and simmering in stainless steel. That evening the food looked like it had been simmering for hours. My wife, the near vegetarian, had only vegetable dishes. The collard greens were pretty good for greens simmering for hours. The okra was spicy and tasty, but overcooked. The rice and mac and cheese were nearly uneatable. I went for the classic, fried chicken. The chicken seemed to be prepared well but had also been sitting on the steam table for a few hours. The chicken was cold in the middle. My remaining vegetables were not worth mentioning. A positive note, the fellow behind the counter was very friendly. On the wall, were some rave magazine reviews from 1993 and 1994. Guess they're living on a very outdated reputation. We won't return.

I wanted to try something different than deli food and sandwiches so I ordered from here for lunch, the jerk chicken, mac n cheese, rice and beans= delicious! I was so hooked on the chicken that I order whenever I can. The delivery time is slow sometimes, but great amount of food for a great price. The greens are a bit too salty though.

I was feeling this place. I'm a transplant from the country and I felt right at home with the cornbread, collard greens, and mac & cheese. Only thing I'd change is next time I want the chicken and dumplings with drop biscuits. Service was friendly and fast. No waiting.

I first went a couple months ago and ordered the catfish... it was ok. My boyfriend and I ordered from there last week in the evening. He has an appetite bigger than anyone I know, it's impossible to keep food in the house. We had the meatloaf, mac and cheese, collard greens, yams, and mashed potatoes. The only thing edible was the mac and cheese. Everything else was beyond salty, it stung the roof of my mouth. I don't know if it had been sitting out all day and the seasoning had settled or if its just more than heavily salted, but neither of us could finish. After spending $20 on what we thought would be amazing, we ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner. The ladies were very nice and sweet and the restaurant is in a nice quite pocket of town.

Their newest location on 28th St. has a really cool look... Sort of a soulful bistro. And their food is some of the best southern food in the city. I had the meeatloaaaf dinner..Satisfying. Also, they have Sweet Tea. Where else can you get that! I will definitely return again and again.
