The food & service was great. The Catfish was perfectly seasoned & so fresh. Macaroni & Cheese, Collard Greens, beans & rice, everything phenomenal!! I definitely recommend Michelle's for a delicious meal.

My boy Aquontis told me about this place and now I'm here once a week. The best chicken and catfish I've had outside of San Francisco. Love this place and the yams are absolutely fire.

Food was amaaaazing, and the time it took for them to get two big plates of food out to us was great. Fried chicken and hot links were to die for. Stop here!

How it all began...

Southern Style Family Recipes from Pauline Simpson began at the Broadway Deli roughly 40 years ago... Michelle began in the kitchen with her mom since she could see over the table.  After she retired, Pauline, along with her husband Reuben, began selling dinners at the VFW where Michelle would assist.   Pauline had a stroke which left her unable to continue in the fashion she'd love.  Michelle then continued her parents legacy to date.   The term “soul food” didn’t become common until the 1960s. With the rise of the civil rights and black nationalist movements during the 1960s, many African-Americans sought to re-claim their part of the American cultural legacy. As terms like “soul brother,” “soul sister” and “soul music” were taking hold, it was only natural that the term “soul food” would be used to describe the recipes that African-Americans had been cooking for generations.
