We traveled to New Rochelle from Queens. We love this place. It's one of the best Soul Food spots. The food is delicious. I love the Coconut Shrimp. I had the Salmon entree with a side of Collard Greens greens and Mac and Cheese. The portions are generous. All of us enjoyed our meal. The only negative criticism I have... More

I am big on customer service, Well the employees of Sweet Potato exceeded my expectations. The waitress was wonderful, friendly and attentive. The owner was so friendly, I had no idea he was the owner I thought he was an employee or simply the cook. The restaurant is very small but cozy, the atmosphere is so relaxed you forget it... More

Was recommend to eat there by a hair stylist at Bespoke Barber shop also located on the same street. The food was beyond amazing. It was so good that I went back with the whole family. Which included a family of five and my mother. Each ordered some thing different and each dinner was amazing. Perfectly seasoned and not salty... More

I drive pass this restaurant all the time and never was interested in purchasing food from Sweet Potatoes. Recently I was invited to a graduation party at the restaurant and boy have I missed out on some great food. The food was nice and hot and tasty. I must admit I went back for seconds. I can't wait to order... More

This small, unassuming eatery, has great Southern food - at least the fried chicken I had. Four small tables are squeezed into a storefront for "dining in", with a continuous stream of take-out customers passing by. The salad that started the meal was a surprise. Instead of the usual lump of lettuce calling itself a salad, it was closer to... More

Upon entering you are greeted by an amazing staff. The selection covered all areas but no way was I prepared for the mind blowing cuisine. Flavors that just popped and although I was getting full halfway through the meal I just couldn't stop...especially the macaroni & cheese. Make the trip and get sweet potatoed. :)

Great Soul Food. Fried Chicken and waffles were great. Mac and cheese and collard greens wonderful. Fried Catfish just right. Top it off with half homemade lemonade and sweet tea. Perfect.

Southern food and Southern hospitality is very rare to I was able to find it in SWEET POTATOE. I often receive phone calls to pick up food from sweet POTATOE and bring to Brooklyn. I guess I'm a delivery service for SP now. Never had bad food here before.

Let me make something clear for people who have never eaten here. Sweet Potatoes has two entrances on the same strip. One of on the far side, and the other is one the other side. If staring at the strip, the right side is a restaurant and the far left offers the brunch buffet. My fiance and I went and... More
