Riverfront Times' Description

This is hallowed ground for soul-food lovers. The food is so infused with homemade love that Oprah Winfrey chose the restaurant and owner Robbie Montgomery and family to serve as the basis for a reality show, Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, on her OWN network. Feast on smothered pork steak, baked chicken, ribs, Salisbury steak (main-course meats change from day to day), and side it up with classics like mac & cheese, okra, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice and gravy, or cabbage and greens. The food is served cafeteria style and the lines can get ridiculously long, but if Oprah is a fan it's safe to say you will be too.

    Dieters, beware. The finger-lickin' food here is made from the owner's mother's recipes. And she doesn't skimp on the butter and sugar.

    Grab the sweet potatoes or yams and you'll be in Heaven. Eat it too often though and you'll be there literally.

    Portion sizes are beyond generous! Mac n Cheese, mashed potatoes and corn bread are absolutely heaven!! My arteries may hurt but every bite was well worth it.
