This Wicker Park soul food BYOB serves homestyle fare in a casual, 1940s Harlem-themed setting—look for live jazz, blues and poetry performances to match. There's also a barbecue pit in the back where folks are welcome to gather. The menu focuses on traditional fare such as smothered chicken, fried chicken, fried catfish and barbecue dishes, all served with sides such as mac and cheese, greens and jalapeno-cheddar cornbread. Prices are reasonable, with plates (a choice of meat with two sides and a piece of bread) averaging $13-$16. A Sunday Soul Brunch features chicken and waffles with a side of live gospel.
