We’ve been waiting for this place to open for awhile.
Was it worth the wait?
Wait and see.
Bistro Soul differs from Bistro to Go as they have the same menu every day. It’s a simpler menu, but no less interesting to explore.
We tried several of the sides, because, well, sides are the best. The crispy macaroni and cheese is much like a more homegrown mac and cheese bite, in that it crumbles and falls to pieces. You can try two sauces with it: Joe’s red, which is a ketchup based sauce with some kick, or white sauce, which is a ranch inspired sauce. We preferred the white.
Pecan encrusted sweet potato casserole? You know that we are going to love that. Cornbread? Yep.
The summer slaw was nice. It’s a non-dairy cole slaw, with large cuts of cabbage. Very refreshing.
Sam went for Matty’s Meatloaf. It’s a gravy based meatloaf, versus ketchup. Do you like meat? Like, really like it? Good. We’d like to know. You are our audience. Well, this meatloaf? You’ll enjoy it, carnivore.
Nina had the Chicken Cobbler, which she thought was just ok. It wasn’t bad, per se, but we build huge expectations up for this place.
That said, we’re definitely going back. It’s worth the quick drive over and as time goes on, it will get even better. We saw one of the racks of ribs cooking and it looks like that’s what we’ll be enjoying next.
