We’re in the South, y’all. Sometimes in the basement of the law school I forget about this. I’m from the north and don’t have any actual soul, but there is soul food around here that I really like. Especially The Know Bookstore and Restaurant, which has:
Jazz: Ok so I don’t know anything about jazz, but the jazz on Friday nights is good enough for me and is always really fun. You could say rollicking.
Bookstore attached: Full of random stuff, including cassette tapes of church sermons and used books for which any fair price will be accepted.
Service: So friendly! I’m a sucker for people who are nice to me.
Food: Fried chicken, meatloaf, fish, ribs, etc—what I’ve had has been good. The vegetable sides are actually vegetarian and yet still pretty delicious without any pork, somehow (especially the greens). Today everyone there (employees and all of the other customers) insisted that we get the catfish. We did (one fried and one baked). It turns out they were completely right.
Sweet Bean Pies: Yes!
