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.

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 .

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
