Restaurant Review! Miss Polly's Soul City Cafe

My boyfriend and I decided to try something new after driving to the BBQ Shop on Madison on a Sunday only to realize that it was closed.  We ventured onto Beale Street, an admittedly rare adventure for two pathologically lazy people.  After weekly meals at the Kooky Canuck (ok, maybe bi or tri-weekly) we felt that we should patronize another downtown restaurant.  
We chose Fried Chicken, Mustard Greens, and Macaroni and Cheese.  The chicken was very good.  It did not have that spicy coating featured by Gus's, but it had great flavor and we were treated to some "house hot sauce" that is not usually sitting on the tables.  It was great.  The greens, however, were tasty but cold.  We were the only people in the restaurant, so that was kind of disappointing.  The mac & cheese was basically pasta and pasteurized processed cheese food product, which is not my favorite but I am sure others like.  The cornbread muffins were really tasty.  They had jalapenos lurking within - a pleasant surprise indeed!  
The service was good, but I am not sure I would go back for anything but the chicken.  I included how I would make this meal in a concurrent post on Feast Time.  


  1. Country-fied bonafide. I like it. My country dinner a few weeks ago was cornbread, pinto beans and deep fried catfish... mmmm..mmm. good

  2. I LOVE catfish. I'm somewhat obsessed with both Little Tea Shop's and Alcenia's.
