Mikki's Soul Food Cafe

Jeff Balke
Mikki's on the southwest side is the epitome of the "meat and three" soul food experience. Eating here is like eating at Grandma's house -- its huge portions of real home cooking are sure to elicit fond memories of times past. The food is typical soul food, with some mean oxtails in a thick, gelatinous sauce served every day and daily specials that include baked catfish, pork chops and meat loaf, all served over rice. Traditional sides, including collard greens, yams and cabbage, suffer from too much time on the steam table, although they still taste great.
