I used it for take out. I highly recommend to call order in advance whether you dine in or take out. That ensures minimal wait time. It's probably better for them too. We had half slab rib full dinner and chicken snapper combo dinner. Very good. The side were all tasty but the best were the collard green, yams and pinto beans. The woman who took my order was so patient and kind. She was like your very own grandmother. The entire experience was so easy and I hope to return very soon.

In my opinion, macaroni and cheese should be a staple dish for a soul food restaurant, not served only on two days a week.

From Our Editors

In the heart of Oakland, the chefs at Nellie's Soulfood Restaurant & Bar draw from Southern soul-food traditions to craft a menu that's always changing. Many of their seafood, poultry, and beef dishes bear crispy golden crusts. Deep-fried oysters, catfish, and snapper fillets—as well as deep-fried pork chops and chicken wings—sit surrounded by traditional sides such as yams, okra, and rice and gravy. Gravy also covers portions of Southern-style steaks and complements specialty dishes such as meatloaf and oxtails. Traditional Southern desserts of peach cobbler and banana pudding end things on the sweetest note possible, much like the duet of "Islands in the Stream" that traditionally ends every presidential debate.
