Lavell's BBQ and Catering doesn't just make barbecue, it prepares "food with soul." This soul food restaurant serves all the classic comfort dishes including ribs, chicken, and fish plates. Pair a slab of turkey ribs or a chunk of fried perch with a variety of filling sides including candied yams, collard greens, and black-eyed peas. If you can't pick just one side, you can supplement your meal with a pair of Soul Rolls, which are collards, barbecue baked beans, and mac and cheese all cuddled up together in an egg roll, making each nibble a mini tour of the menu. For a quicker bite, grab a pulled pork or shrimp po' boy sandwich, both of which can fit neatly in a pocket if your pocket is large and lined with foil.
