Ellen's Soul Food Restaurant
601 South Parkway East
For soul food at its best, the place to go is Ellen's, a friendly, folksy, timeworn storefront on South Parkway East that's famous for its fried chicken. Be ready to 'call your pieces' when you order. Ellen's menu, handwritten in ballpoint pen by the staff, also includes neck bones, catfish, fried pork chops, fried okra, candied yams, and stacks of cornbread. And don't miss the 'Sock-It-To-Me' Cake!
