Firstly, I've eaten soul food from many people whose geographical location varied over this great nation of ours. From North to South, East to West, high and low and side to side. Ann's is by far the worst soul food if not any food I've ever eaten. I wasn't to thrown off by the actual restaurant itself because I've eaten some great meals in the so-called hole-in-a-wall joints. I was actually impressed by it's shabby but homely appearance. I must say the lady working the front counter was EXTREMELY nice and courteous. If only the foods' taste matched her charm. To be honest, I would have preferred bad service for great food. Okay....to the food. The cabbage taste old (like made a few days before), the yams were more like boiled (Not baked) sweet potato's with exactly a hint of sugar and cinnamon. The fried chicken was just that, FRIED CHICKEN! No real taste and in my opinion a tad bit under cooked. The green beans and greens were canned. Yes, y'all CANNED green beans and greens! For this reason alone is why I titled the review "This isn't SOUL food". Now I don't care if you may not know how to season food well or cook it properly, when you use canned anything for a side, you've taken the SOUL out of it. It's called SOUL food because you're actually putting your SOUL into it, i.e. taking the time to cut the greens, leaving just a little stem, washing the greens, adding the smoke turkey, or pigtails, neck bones or what ever type of meat you're using and let the food slowly cook. TIME, SWEAT AND ENERGY = SOUL FOOD. Not opening a can of generic greens or green beans and dumping that mushy crap onto someones plate like you're doing them a favor. Even though you shouldn't be using anything canned for a side dish, the canned Glory greens are better the the ones they serve. It get's worse though. The mac and cheese was just noodles, butter and what I thought was cheese. It kinda tasted like cheese but to put it into perspective, all the noodles were loose. That's mac but I'm still looking for the cheese. The sweet potato pie was the last of my list of adventures to this spot and it stayed in tune with the rest of the food. Pieces of egg whites in the pie. This comes from mixing the sweet potato's while still hot, adding eggs and not stirring them in well and they begin to cook from the heat. GROSS! Not to mention the taste was just as gross. Too much nutmeg, not enough sugar and enough strings to supply an orchestra of only violins. What bothers me more than anything about this spot is that they've gotta know this food isn't good, i.e. profit. They cannot be making money with food like this....okay I'm done. Is there anything I can say good about this spot after what I've said so far? Um...I'm really trying. Alright, I will say the portions are nice albeit not appetizing...and the lady was really nice. Oh, I already said that.<br /> <br /> Didn't get sick..Blessed<br /> <br /> Just my two cents (actually $22.50+ tip but whose counting)<br /> <br /> Ron
