When I think of Nat's, the only word that comes to mind is "MMMMMMM!!!" I don't need a fine dining experience everytime. Sometimes, I want to just get my food & go home. And when that occasion hits, it's Nat's that comes to the rescue! Nat's is located in a warehouse but don't let looks fool you - there is some serious cooking going on up in here! Down home soul food from your favorite grandmama's kitchen! You may not even be able to find your ribs, this food will stick to them like glue! My favorite is their turkey wings, dressing and mac&cheese. The turkey wings are fork-tender and seasoned to Southern perfection. Moist & savory dressing (stuffing) with a side of some of the best mac&cheese in the South deliciously complement the meal. Their dinners are massive. King Kong might even have a hard time getting through them. You get a meat (usually chicken, oxtails, meatloaf or ribs) and three oversized side orders (their yams are homemade and oh so good without being too sweet; mixed greens of cabbage and collards seasoned with a smoked meat; field peas or okra & tomatoes cooked just like old times; white, yellow or pigeon peas & rice round everything out). Also included are a corn muffin and the tiniest little piece of cake that is soooo good as an end to the meal! Mmmm! Slices of homemade cakes & pudding are on sale as well. Yes, it's hot as I don't know what in that place but if you go at the right time, you won't be in line for long. The lines are longest around lunchtime on Saturdays and Sundays. Just don't even go after 1:00pm on a Sunday. The line is too crazy long & standing in the sun is not what you want to be doing on a hot day. And keep your ticket in your hand, btw. That's how they'll know what dinner you ordered. Other than the food, my favorite thing about Nat's is the price! I think oxtails are the most expensive thing on the menu & with a price of $13.95, 3 meals out of one plate - it's so worth it! People don't cook like they used to and everybody who says they can cook, may not be able to cook at all. But if you like soul food, when I tell you Nat's is it?! Nat's is IT! P.S. Travis H. and Vicky A. tried to tell me about this place and it took me forever to get there. I'll never wait so long off good recommendations again!
