Meatloaf Wednesday! Awesome! Cabbage and mac and cheese, all sober tasty, well seasoned and not too much salt. Actually Love this place.

Found Nana's place via TripAdvisor for a late lunch in between meetings. I ordered fried chicken and fried catfish based on review feedback...very good...solid food. I wasn't disappointed and over ate.

We were tired and not sure we were hungry but stopped by Nanas before going to our hotel. This place is THE place! Everything you would expect, smothered chicken (my choice), collard greens, sweet potatoes, salads, corn bread, black eyed peas, fried chicken you name it. My companion and I got the "small" plates which include a drink. We could... More

Nana's is a very notable place to eat soul food. Thus when a customer contacts your establishment to inquire what's on the menu for the day, please address that customer with professionalization and try not to hang up the phone while the customer is on hold. I'm certain the owner whom I met would not appreciate staff answering the phone... More

The special for the day was jerk chicken but they were already out of it by 5:00 pm. I was disappointed at that. I had both friend chicken and baked chicken, mac and cheese and black-eyed peas. All was good; nothing was outstanding. You get your meal on a paper/plastic plate and a tray -- like a cafeteria. So not... More

This is a must go if you are in the area. Shawn and team took awesome care of us. The fried chicken was incredible and the other food we had within our group was just as good. I would recommend this for any and all size groups, and families. Atmosphere isn't a luxury dining experience, but it's good "soul food";... More

Yes, I said it's the best fried chicken; even better than M&M Soul Food in Vegas. I have only been here a few times, but any time I am visiting my sister in Charlotte I will go out of my way to stop here. The first time we stopped here it was based on the reviews, and the reviews were... More

The food is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful in assisting us in figuring out the various options and what to order. There are many different size plates and even a veggie option. The food is already prepared and ready to serve as you go through the line-but not overcooked and steamed out. It is hot and... More
