Had lunch at Let’s Eat today and the food was excellent. I had the oxtails w/ mac n cheese and cabbage. My friend had the fried fish. All of the food tastes authentic and reminded me of my mother’s cooking. Everything tastes home made (the oxtail, the gravy, and not like it’s from cans. This is the BEST soul food I’ve had in quite some time and will definitely be returning.

The place was nicely decorated, very clean and welcoming. The Mac n cheese was made with a Smokey cheddar cheese something different. Would have given it 5 stars but the collards were raw. I will definitely try this place again.

I love seasoned chicken, but it was too salty for my taste. The okra was fried to perfection. The soufflé was mid. The greens were good. The restaurant was clean. The host gentleman was friendly and invited us back. I'd go back, but it better be strawberry banana pudding that day. I am out of state and can't just go whenever.

The food is really good. It cooked to order, so you will have to wait. But it's worth every minute. Everything was well seasoned, hot and fresh. The young lady at the register was friendly and helpful. 10 out of 10...would recommend. Those fried pork chops....just yum.

Their food was extremely good. I’ve gotten the barbecue ribs, rice, pinto beans, and cabbage mixed with collard greens. Everything was amazing!! The ribs fall off the bone and was seasoned well. My husband and I drove from North Myrtle Beach SC to try you guys out. Those 3.5 hours was well worth it and we don’t mind taking another trip back there. If anyone decides to go to this restaurant, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for the amazing food and hospitality! We will definitely see you guys soon!

I got a pork chop plate with lemon cake for dessert. All the flavors were on point, portion size was good also. Good customer service. I can't wait to go back and try something else

I am a natural complainer and am rarely satisfied with food but OMG. This is my second time coming and this time sealed it for me. My turkey wing was awesome not to mention the yams were phenomenal. My husband had the hamburger steak and greens. Everything was on point. I will DEFINITELY make the 14mile drive again

How is this such a well kept secret?! The facility is super nice and VERY clean and it doesn’t smell like fried food. The service is great and moves fairly quick. NOW THE FOOD…I got the chicken wings, collard and cabbage mix, with mashed potatoes and it ALL was SO GOOD! And the crazy part was that the food wasn’t heavy.

The food is very delicious especially the desserts!!! Only gave 4 stars because the serving size for the fried fish was a little off in my opinion but maybe I just got a couple smaller than normal/less meat pieces. I'll definitely be back to give it another try for 5 stars

Just moved to the triangle area and wanted to find some southern/soul food. Found this place and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Food came out real fast. I got hot honey wings, fried okra, and fried shrimp. My partner got the same wings but with fries. We loved it and ate it all, lemonade was great as well! The ladies working at the front were friendly and checked on us twice to make sure we enjoyed the food too :) will definitely be coming back!

Sometimes you just want home cooking without cooking at home. Let's Eat is a place that fills that void. A place like that is hard in this day and age. They have generous portions and reasonable prices. I've tried a few things on the menu and while there were a few misses for me, I have my go to items of plain wings (great seasoning and crisp breader), collards (pork only) and pinto beans. Occasionally I'll get a pork chop sandwich. They have other items some of which I've tried. The mac and cheese, green beans and cabbage are fine not great or horrible just fine. I wanted to like the desserts and while they were fine they fell short for me. My least favorite items that I won't be trying again are the hamburger steak and baked chicken wings. I didn't care for how the hamburger steak was seasoned. The baked chicken wings were wet and I like my baked chicken skin dry and crispy unless the chicken is in gravy. These things are my preferences and I've heard others order these things many times. You can't go wrong by trying Lets Eat at least once. You never know what item you may enjoy.

My first time at this place was a success. Got a pork chop dinner with potatoe salad and okra and it was absolutely wonderful. I will definitely tell others. The presentation was desirable and the food was delicious.

I drove from Maryland to handle some business and didn't stop to eat because I had planned with my friend to "Let's Eat Soul Food"! It didn't disappoint. My sisters met us there and we had the best time trying each others entree's and socializing over some really good food and apple lemonade. As I drove back to Maryland in the wee hours of the morning, I realized that I should have gotten a pork chop sandwich for the road. The food, the ambiance and the owner were exceptional. I will be back!

Food was great! I had the fried pork chops with mac n cheese and yam souffle. I've never had the yams like that but they were really good and the lemonade is just a perfect companion. The man in the front had an awesome attitude and exceptional customer service which made our experience even better. Will definitely be back.

Absolutely delicious. Best soul food in Durham for sure. Had the ox tails, lemon pepper wings, potato salad, greens, and Mac and cheese. Blueberry raspberry lemonade also hit the spot and can’t forget the apple pie. Great customer service and happy to support a black owned business. I plan to go again and again.

It was so good I wrote this review while I was eating. First let me start with the professionalism and family vibe. The place was clean with a home vibe. Psalms was amazing and walked me through the menu. I got the Turkey wings, rice & gravy, cabbage and potato salad. When I say good it was GOOD. The potato salad tasted like that one person in the family that's only allowed to make it. Yes that good!!! Turkey was so tender and BAAAABY the homemade flour gravy was on point . I'm definitely coming back .
