Soul Food in Chattanooga

Heart on a plate. Not literally (that would be strange) …a figurative heart on a plate, though, that’s what soul food is all about. You can taste the love and soul in every soulful bite. 

You can find all the collard greens, fried chicken, and potatoes you can stomach at the granddaddy of soul food restaurants in Chattanooga, Herman’s Soul Food. Some of the best soul food (try the pinto beans) is had at Davis Wayne’s. You’ll also find plenty of soul (in the form of hot fried fish) at places like Uncle Larry’s on MLK Boulevard. East Chattanooga is a mecca for soul food … like Meca’s (for example) and Lois’s Restaurant.
