The food was really good..me and my friend ate everything on our plates. We ordered the blacken grouper. This will be a place I come to visit again. Beware the parking isn’t that great but this place is worth checking out. Also the red sangria is outstanding!!

My wife saw a story posted on IG about this place and wanted to try it out. The menu looked very appealing, and from what we saw from other reviews we decided we would do our 36th anniversary here, my intuition was to check it out first to see if the atmosphere was appealing enough to celebrate such a milestone. I'm glad we did because although we didn't think we would enjoy a special moment like that here, we thoroughly enjoyed our food. We had the fried green tomatoes starter as our appetizer, It was delicious over a bed of mixed greens and pickled red onions. My wife ordered the fried shrimp plate, which she enjoyed. She never cleans her plate and was full when we left. I had the seafood gumbo, which was very rich and flavorful, I also had a side of red beans and rice that I took home. The crowning jewel was the rum cake! So good, we ordered a 3rd slice to go, lol. This place is a very short drive and neatly tucked away on Old Chapel Hill rd. The menu is compact with a good selection of authentic dishes, and we look forward to returning.

Definitely make reservations here the place is small. We ordered the fried green tomatoes and fried chicken plate. Both were very tasty and filling. Atmosphere was a little loud and service could have been more attentive. Overall good dinner spot

Yum! We are the succotash (amazing), gumbo (left a bit to be desired), jambalaya (also amazing), and a special appetizer of potatoes and some of the best brisket I’ve ever had! We will definitely be back, can’t wait to try their drinks!!

This has become my new favorite restaurant! Found it just 4-5 weeks ago and have been multiple times for lunch or dinner with friends. We have loved every dish we've had. The fried green tomato plate with succotash, spinach and shrimp is fantastic. Fried shrimp, catfish and oysters are perfection. The gumbo is so good you want to lick the bowl. Someone ordered the fried chicken last night and ate every scrap. We've shared two desserts and they are wonderful, especially the unusual bananas foster. While they do not yet have a full ABC license they have beers and wine and they do fun things with wine like a white wine spritz. Their sangria is in a class by itself, made in the authentic fashion with so much fruit that you want a spoon when you finish to enjoy the marinated fruit. So happy to have found this place. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. We especially like eating on the patio when weather cooperates. Do check the website for days and hours of opening.

The food and service was wonderful with plenty of food! I couldn’t decide and got a sampling (cup) of a few items. Literally ate off others plates and absolutely nothing was bad, even the pineapple tea was such a treat!! I’m so disappointed I got so full I was about to pop that I forgot to order dessert but I’m so looking forward to telling anyone who will listen how good this is! Only feedback is I wish they had fountain drink/free refills with the exception of the house made drinks vs canned.

I enjoyed my lunch at this cute spot. Half brisket po-boy with sides of gumbo and salad plus sangria. All was good. The brisket was tender and better than some other local restaurants I’ve been to. I enjoyed my salad and gumbo but couldn’t eat it all so one side would have been enough for me for lunch. The Sangria was delicious and went well with the meal. I’ll be back and will encourage others to come.

Great food, we’re not experts on creole dishes but the flavors were nothing but exceptional. The choice of music was on par with the relaxing and “smooth”, atmosphere. The food came to our table hot and stayed hot until we left. Definitely was not under a heat lamp for extended amounts of time. The chef was very accommodating, checking on customers throughout our meal. Thank you Succotash!

Susan and Juan at Succotash helped to make our wedding the most perfect weekend we could have possibly imagined. We are so grateful for all their time and patience in working with us over the months leading up to the event and their flexibility in working within our budget. The food itself was phenomenal. Countless guests told us it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding! Their food is creative, delicious, and can fit any occasion. They were also extremely thoughtful and flexible when it came to accommodating various dietary restrictions. We highly, highly recommend Succotash catering!

Enjoyed exploring this jewel box of a restaurant with fantastic comfort food. I mean if you go to a place named “Succotash”, you have to try it with crispy brisket burnt ends on top. The fried green tomatoes with BBQ shrimp was another level. Friendly, attentive service, despite being crazy busy. Lucked out on a 50% off a bottle of wine feature on Wednesday night. The layers of flavors, so expertly combined, not to mention the perfect smokiness of the brisket, was top shelf. All reasonably priced. Well curated wine & beer selections to compliment the menu. Chef Juan DiGiulio is a master of Creole/Cajun comfort food. Definitely going back!
