David and his family are giving this neck of the woods a place to chow down on real-deal comfort food: hickory-smoked ribs, catfish po'boys and fried pork chops reminiscent of Sunday supper at Grandma's, all in heaping, hearty portions.In a sea of chains, franchises, double quarter-pounders and Dorito Loco tacos, this blink-and-you'll-miss-it spot is a much-needed beacon of good old-fashioned, from-scratch comfort food. Owner David (it's okay, you can call him Frank) and his wife live a stone's throw from their little restaurant. But in the years before they set up shop, there was something conspicuously absent from the landscape: a good, quality, home-cooked meal. So, after growing weary of the same ol' same ol' from the seemingly ubiquitous fast food eateries in the area, they decided to take matters into their own hands and do what any hungry gourmand would do: make their own darn restaurant, thankyouverymuch. And the neighbors couldn't be happier.
Thus, Frank's Cajun & Soul Kitchen was born. And in their little kitchen, David and his family are giving this neck of the woods a place to chow down on real-deal comfort food: hickory-smoked ribs, catfish po'boys and fried pork chops reminiscent of Sunday supper at Grandma's, all in heaping, hearty portions. With a menu that combines smoky, tender barbecue, Cajun classics and straight-up Southern soul food, some might call it a hodgepodge. We like to think of it as "a few of our favorite things." But perhaps most accurate is David's own description: "the ultimate comfort food." And we're inclined to agree. After all, any place that offers creamy mac 'n cheese, fall-off-the-bone ribs and shrimp po'boys (just to name a few) all under the same roof is a place we'll take comfort in any day of the week.
