Nothing picks up the body and mind like a helping of soul food. It has a way of melting you into your seat and putting a smile on your face. From fried foods to greens, there’s something for everyone. Even those who are not vegetable lovers can savor the taste of collard greens after cooking with ham, infusing the greens with a salty, juicy, deliciousness that helps you forget you’re getting a solid helping of your daily vegetables. Combine that with cornbread and fried chicken and you have yourself a meal few restaurants can rival. And if you live in metro Phoenix, a new soul food restaurant is now open and ready to serve.
This new soul food location comes to the Valley by way of St. Louis. Momma’s Soul Fish & Chicken first started as a takeout-only restaurant, but it has since moved to a dine-in and take-out restaurant after moving to north Phoenix at 15414 North 19th Avenue. The menu, whether you check it out through the restaurant’s Facebook page or you’re looking at it when stopping by the restaurant, is packed with food that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. You will find St. Louis pork ribs, pork chops, collard greens, fried catfish, tri-tip baby back ribs, fried shrimp, not to mention several variations of chicken and waffles (or shrimp and fish and waffles if you want to switch it up a bit), deep fried okra, hush puppies, and cornbread.
Maybe you have a bit of a sweet tooth that needs satisfying? Sure thing. You will find homemade peach cobbler, chocolate cake, apple pie, and banana pudding, just to name a few. The menu is simply too packed to mention everything, so the best way to view all the options is to view food photos on Momma’s Soul Fish & Chicken’s Facebook page, or just stop by the restaurant and see everything for yourself.
The restaurant is closed on Monday, but it is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 AM until 9 PM, and on Sunday from 11 AM until 7 PM. If you are familiar with Momma’s Soul Fish & Chicken’s drive-through-only restaurant in San Tan Valley you will want to skip that location, as it has closed. This was done so the family-owned operation could focus all of its efforts on opening this dine-in and take-out restaurant. It is now open and ready to satisfy all of your soul food cravings.
