Soul food on the South Side – This is definitely something you should try at the Taste of Chicago! A crunchy exterior seasoned with loads of herbs coats this fresh tender catfish. A tasting portion is generous – two big catfish tenders. I drizzled mine with tangy honey mustard sauce to complement the spicy catfish. Even on a hot day, I enjoyed this, so I will definitely be visiting their South Side restaurant for some soul food come winter.

Nice large soul food restaurant for casual dining – I recommend that you check out BJ's Market on 79th and Racine. I really love the smoked chicken here. they have some very good food and the place is clean. Also I have to add that the staff were very courteous as well. The dining area is large enough to hold 100 people.

However, the yams taste like something out of a can. It isn't the best soul food, but it is healthier than eating at a fast food restaurant.

Pretty Good "Fast Food Soul". – I went on a Sunday to Bj's out of a recommendation from a co worker. It was not bad. They had a great selection and the banana pudding was excellent. Stil had enough to take home. I would definately say this is a hidden gem. Try it....

Casual South Side cafeteria serves up soul food to a loyal crowd. – In Short
Hungry regulars line up with tray in hand at this South Side soul food staple to dig into hearty, reasonably priced plates of rotisserie-smoked chicken, jumbo wings, barbecued rib tips, catfish, fried shrimp and more. Hot and cold sides include fried green tomatoes, mac and cheese, sweet potato fries and coleslaw; for dessert, there's peach cobbler, banana pudding and German chocolate cake.
