Village Voice's Description
The prodigious culinary accomplishments of African Americans in the Southern United States-sometimes known as soul food-are an eroding presence on the city's culinary scene, and the remaining examples should be cherished and supported. Mitchell's offers the standards: knock-out fried chicken with more black pepper than flour in the supremely crisp crust, mac and cheese with little squiggles of cheddar, collards laced with smoked turkey wing, and pork ribs slathered with barbecue sauce and oven-roasted. Grab one of the booths in the sunny front room, and try the fresh-veggie succotash if it's available.

Winner of Best Fried Chicken in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! They pack a heap of black pepper into an ideal, crispy-fried crust.
Great fried chicken and delicious sides! Very filling and pretty cheap. Waitress seems to be in the family and can be a little grumpy but is very nice.
feels very much like a slice of the South in Prospect Heights
Mitchell’s is the real deal when it comes to delicious fried chicken. This place gets crowded during main dining hours, but it’s definitely worth the wait!
