I've eaten at Chez Soul a couple of times and it's been such good southern home style cooking. The staff has been pleasant each time. I would recommend this as a casual good eatin' place

We picked Chez Soul based on the reviews. Not disappointed, but delighted. Service was patchy for us, but attitude and attentiveness were great and good. They were busy, and seemed a little ready for a day off. Meals were served out of sync. But we...More
