Respond to Review of Soul Vegetarian - Abernathy
Review: One word: Pizza. While pizza might be a far cry from soul food, Soul Veg's Friday special pizza is a serious hit! Customer's come to the restaurant on Friday specifically for the pizza alone. And they buy 2 rectangle slices at a time. (The slices are nice-sized and filling.) Salivation! lol Very popular restaurant. This Soul Veg has a hot bar and a grill menu to order from. The hot bar always has Mac and cheese (one of the biggest sellers... but not my favorite honestly), brown rice, bean curd gravy, candied yams, broccoli, cornbread and 2 featured soups-- most of the time split pea and orange lentil. There are also daily specials that are featured on the hot bar-- of which the pizza is the favorite. The other daily specials featured regularly when I used to go there were the BBQ Tofu, burritos, stir-fry spaghetti, jerk tofu and southern steak. All pretty good. The grill, on the other hand is hit or miss. Depends on who is on the grill that shift. The grill features all types of vegan burgers (thumbs up), battered baskets (mushrooms, tofu etc..... too oily), stir-fried rice (hit or miss), etc. They also have live salad selections which, again, are great on some days, bland on others. But when its good, it's good! The deserts are great. The restaurant also has a smoothie bar which is AWESOME!!!!! And they sell DELICIOUS ice cream. Sunday morning they open early for brunch which includes hot pancakes, scrambled tofu hash browns, biscuits, etc. Friendly service. Family atmosphere. Large seating area. Clean. Only thing I'm not too crazy about are the prices-- leans a bit on the pricey side for a dinner plate-- around $15... and on the wrong side of town too. But if the latter and former are not issues for you. Go for it!!!!!
