This is where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. grew up. You can still see his house and his church and some stores. It is a beautifully kept area, and there are many stops to make as you walk along and soak in the history. Take...More

First Visit. Had the Chicken and the Brisket. Both were juicy with outstanding flavor. Had the Cole slaw, potato salad and Mac n Cheese. All excellent. Sweet pickles and white bread were good accoutrements. Will be back.

I admire the effort. The Market is a place to go. But the street is more memory and hope than reality. We walked from the MLK sites west about 8 blocks, and crushed glass crackled beneath our feet, as we walked by boarded buildings and...More
