Best Soul in Seattle!

Lovely decor and atmosphere in the restaurant. At 8pm on a Friday we were told it would be an hour wait, but really more like 30mins.... (that's how it should be, not the other way round !). Great food. The only word of warning though, is if you have specific southern staples on your mind, phone to check if they are on the menu that night. Chicken and Waffles is on the Winter menu, and I'd be hankering for it all day. The desserts rotate as well, so if you really really want the Red Velvet cake or Sweet Potato Pie, call ahead to see if it is on that night.
