Service: Great. The owner and chef, James, approached the table and chattered us up for a while toward the end of our meal, elaborating on his culinary style.

Booze: N/A.

Food:

Chicken & Waffles | four crispy, golden brown chicken wings atop a fluffy belgian waffle with two sides $ 10.99

Hickory-smoked Ribs or Tips | ribs or tips rubbed with 2J’s 12 spices and slow-smoked over hickory wood with two sides and choice of bread $ 10.49

Deciding whether the ribs were better with or without sauce was the biggest issue with the food here. Crispy fried chicken with juicy, well-seasoned meat was even better swimming in a sea of hot sauce and syrup on a pillowy waffle. The waffle itself was nothing to rave about, but still enjoyable. The greens on the other hand were fantastic! Very flavorful. For a straightforward, basic mac and cheese this recipe was alright, but I chose to fill up on uniquely satisfying bourbon creamed corn and dressing. Corn, yum. Being informed that the secret ingredient in the corn was parmesan cheese—and bourbon, obviouslyexplained a lot. I was disappointed in the actual cornbread, however; it was small and dry. I would prefer to see the hot water variety OR a big hunk of moist cake-like bread with plenty o’ warm butter and honey or preserves.

Overall: Great soul food! Unfortunately i was too stuffed for any deliciously tempting dessert like banana pudding, peach cobbler or sweet potato cheesecake… I’ll be back for that!

    Can I just play fan girl for a moment and say that I LOVE your A Fare Affair. No really, I’m a blogger myself outside of my day job, disdain form emails, and genuinely enjoy your perspective. Your breadth of reviews is incredibly impressive– I am always craving some new and unusual flavor after reading one of your posts.

    I’m a part of the Tastemade team where our mission is to connect the world through food. We’ve brought together Tastemakers from around the world with both on our Youtube Network of over 160 channels worldwide and with our recently launched mobile app. Our iPhone app lets you shoot, edit and fancify your dining adventures from the comfort of your iphone.

    We’re excited to see our app transform the way bloggers are producing video content. Check out what Amy Schuster from BackyardBites, Krista Simmons from LAist, and Claire Thomas from KitchyKitchen are saying about the app and how they are using video to enhance their posts.

    The app is still new, but we’ve already been working on ways to promote our core users outside of the app in addition to featuring within the app. And since I’m a fan of your blog, I had to reach out and see if you’d wanna join the fun. If you have a few free moments to chat, I’d love to tell you more about the app, our Network on YouTube and see if there’s a way we might be able to work together moving forward.

    Looking forward to chatting soon!

    P.S: happy to send some examples if interested. It is free and such a great way to implement video content into blogs.
