A vibrant blue and purple mural dominates a large wall at Soul Terrific—a bright tribute to music splashed with saxophone players, keyboards, and loose notes spinning away into space. The scene isn't strictly musical, and if you look closer, you can easily spot steamed crab there, or a small drumstick here in the hands of a happy musician or concertgoer.
The image sums up Soul Terrific—a spirited scene that ultimately, is all about the food. In the kitchen, chefs fry catfish and chicken, sear New York strip steaks, and grill up pork chops. Each entrée arrives at diners' tables accompanied by a hearty helping of homemade cornbread and two house-made comfort food sides such as macaroni and cheese, collard greens, or Southern-style red rice. Tuesday through Thursdays see fresh chefs' specials, which range from oxtails and cabbage to barbecue ribs and coleslaw. After meals, diners can munch on homemade peach cobbler or double-chocolate cake any day they please, as long as their dentist isn't looking.
