Ms. Mattie's Soul Kitchen
Operated out of a small frame house in a largely industrial area, New Soul Sandwich Shop is one woman's labor of love. Ms. Mattie, as the regulars call her, has been offering up her homemade soul food lunches for decades. The menu changes according to availability and Ms. Mattie's whims, but you can pretty much count on fried chicken, smothered pork chops, and gravy on white rice. Other dishes in rotation include oxtail, okra, mac and cheese, and, of course, sandwiches. The interior is small, and seating is limited, but you can also order takeout.
