Catfish with Two Sides

WOW!! Cat fish was fresh not dry or over cooked. Gouda mac-n-cheese hit the spot the flavor was one of a kind. This spot is great place to pick up on my lunch time fast service called ahead.

Catfish & Shrimp Combo with Two Sides

So I tried this place for the first time on 2/11 after reading all the reviews for local soul spots novs was the best so I tried it and they did not disappoint whatsoever the catfish and shrimp was nice hot and crispy everything tasted fresh and the Mac and cheese didn't need nothin extra it was seasoned perfectly like my grandma made it back home and the corn bread was super moist so I literally went back the next day and got the same thing it tasted just as good as the day prior but this time I didn't get my cornbread but let me tell you how on point the customer service is they apologized for the mistake and offered to make it right I couldn't ask for more try this place and you won't be disappointed
