Ellaem's Soul Food
Voted Best Soul Food Restaurant in 2010 by the Las Vegas Review Journal, EllaEm's Soul Food serves delectable down-home cooking concocted from time-honored family recipes. Sip a sweet tea ($2), while eyeballing the menu that teems with soul food classics from crispy fried chicken ($6.99) to grilled, seasoned catfish ($11.99), and slices of sweet-potato pie ($2.50). Drown mealtime sorrows with the smothered chicken baked to criminal perfection with Granny's special seasoning and a delicious gravy cover-up ($9.99), while the red snapper fillet ($11.99) is equally arresting when grilled, fried, or smuggled into a sandwich ($9). All of EllaEm's entrees come with warm cornbread and a trio of sides, such as collard greens, mac 'n' cheese, or fried cabbage, while those refusing to let rice and gravy play a supporting role can take home a large-sized side to eat or blow kisses at ($11). End your gastronomic voyage with a demurely decadent dish of peach cobbler ($3), or a cup of piping hot java ($2), which provides similar stomach soothing powers, but is less adept at fixing your shoes.
