The food was good but the service was not. I waited 12 minutes for a fresh wing, to get an old wing! Mario made it right, but if I would not have checked my food I would have waited for nothing!

My husband and I had a beautiful experience eating here. The service was great and the food didn't disappoint. The portions are filling, you definitely will leave full. The pork chop was delicious, delicious and more delicious. The drive from Raleigh to V's Kitchen was worth it.

Where do I begin? When you walk in, your always welcome with warm southern love. I love the art hanging, love her story. Clearly she hires people after her heart. Even when busy, they acknowledge you and even make up for any long wait. IT may be a small taste of the dessert of the day, but when you taste this plate of love, it makes up for it. THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE! Bravo!! I will continue to come here and support this establishment. My husband was impressed and wanted to come back for soul food. We are so impressed with a simple burger, we haven't even given the real deal a try. But if your burgers are amazing, the rest is in the books. Your family should be proud! You did that!!!!

Soo glad I tried out V's Kitchen. Although the ox tails didn't look anything like the picture and they could have been cooked a little longer as they were a bit rubbery, the flavor and gravy were on point. The cabbage/collard mix was superb, pintos, mac, and rice were cooked just right, wings were good, everything was seasoned perfectly and I think I've found my new favorite soul food spot. Will give the oxtails another try but also looking forward to trying some of the other menu items.

My favorite bite: The fried chicken was very good! A wing dinner comes with four hot, crispy, and well seasoned whole wings two sides and roll/cornbread. I chose collard + cabbage mix and macaroni and cheese. Both were hit the "southern comfort food" spot I was hoping to curb. What to know for next time: Get there early to beat the lunch rush. Pro tip: Online ordering is available. What gave me pause: Nothing! I really enjoyed the food and service at V's Kitchen.

I've ordered food here a few times and have always been pleased, but omgoodness - that fish sandwich I ordered recently was AWESOME - well seasoned and crispy! So, I ordered the fish to go - as I traveled home, the wonderful smells begged me to pinch a piece of fish to taste - it was sooo good! I was so impressed, I called the restaurant to let them know I was very pleased and would be back. Keep up the great work and stay safe!

Had no idea this place was here. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the lunch... Oxtails and Fried Fish and Shrimp. We will certainly return!! The cornbread was very moist and the fish and shrimp were fried perfectly. And the oxtails...... MAAAAAAN!!

Wow, everything I tried here is amazing. Had the hamburger scramble on rice with 3 cheese mac n cheese and the fries. The fries were so perfectly fried and seasoned. Corn bread was soft and flavorful. This is a hidden gem. Great soul food at great prices. Wonderful customer service as well.

First, when I entered I was greeted very warmly by Natasha. Tip her big! What a story she has! I wanted to try several things since seeing commercial on FB. Had chicken, mac, cabbage...next days dinner was oxtail, string beans and mashed potatoes. Pros Authentic mac & Cheese Real string beans Real mashed potatoes Nice gravy Really good cornbread Delicious chicken Awesome Banana Pudding with lots of cookies! Cons String beans were salty but I saved them with adding a little water Oxtail needed some curry or jerk..just a little more seasoning and I like mine falling off the bone, so I cooked a little more. Mashed potato needed a little more butter and pepper Loved the idea of sweet and spicy cabbage but too much sugar, and not enough spice Overall, I really enjoyed this food, and will be back! They had me at hello! I'm just a cook and picky!!

My husband and I were in the mood for some good southern food and we found this place on google. I can not say enough good things about this cabbage! This is the best cabbage that I have tasted from a restaurant. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the mac and cheese was outstanding. We will surely be coming back for more!

Bro.....them pork chops taste like Jesus himself is back there cooking. Oh and the sweet potato fluff taste like thanksgiving is having a party in your mouth. I bit into that cornbread and got a mouthful of heaven, honey, butter and freedom. My spirit ascended into the astral plane for a good 27 minutes my lord. 6 stars

Great food! I was really impressed. I don't like fast food but have to eat while I'm on the road working all day so look for the special small business restaurants with good cooking. This is definitely one that I will be back to.

Another of the small lunch restaurants in a strip shopping center that caters to the lunch crowd from RTP. Food is very good and the service is fast and friendly. I had fried chicken with collard greens and sweet chili cabbage. All very good. Prices are good for lunch around RTP.

Quiant and please atmosphere with very friendly service. I had a bun less version of their bird burger, and it was excellent. So a well earned 5 stars from me on my initial visit. I hope to return next time I’m up this way.

Great southern cookin. Everything is awesome. Staff are polite and friendly. I've eaten here more than 30 times over the past several years and it's pretty consistent. Any bad reviews are most definitely flukes.

I loved the Cooked cabbage. It was delicious. But the coleslaw tasted like it came from a box. And the hamburger had a weird texture to it. My boyfriend had the pork chop and said it was really good. And the tea is really really good.

Always great food. A hidden gem. Some of the best home cooking you'll find and probably the best collards around.

V’s is the perfect place, if you are looking for home cooked food! I ordered the hamburger scramble and my Father had fried fish & shrimp, sweet chili cabbage and macaroni & cheese. V’s Kitchen was clean, the staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the music!! Our first visit to V’s, we left full and happy, what more could you ask for? We will be going back.

New place. Seems like catering buffet type food, put on a plate and sold like it is made to order. Good for a quick bite.

Soul food isn’t just a American tradition it’s a way of life that ties deep roots to the south. If you want home cooked food that tastes amazing then you have come to the right place. From the Mac n cheese and cornbread to the fried pork chops and collards, I can’t praise this establishment enough. The oxtails are tender and hearty and the chicken is delicious. My favorite has to be the fried shrimp! They are flavorful, seasoned to perfection and not like any other shrimp I’ve eaten before. Oh, and one of the best banana puddings in the south, so if you haven’t been to V’s Kitchen yet then your missing out!

Loved everything about this place from the food to the customer service. I ordered baked chicken with Mac and cheese, and rice and gravy it was really good and seasoned. I also got the side of banana pudding with a drink it was about 12.50 so very reasonable pricing I will be returning!!!

My husband and I went here for the 1st time; we went online looking for soul food in Durham. This place is great! I got the baked white meat chicken, my husband got the fried. I also got the Mac n cheese and the sweet potato fluff. He got collard greens and pintos. He was eating more of my Mac n cheese and sweet potato fluff than I was! Great service and atmosphere we will definitely go back.

I ordered the fried pork chop with green beans, mac and cheese, and cornbread through Uber Eats. Everything was fresh and delicious! 😋 It is definitely well seasoned but I didn’t mind. I really hate that it’s not open on the weekend when my parents visit and we’re looking for a place to have a soulful dinner.

Food is awesome and staff is very nice. I ordered the fish and shrimp platter which was seasoned perfectly, with sweet potato and Mac as my side. My son also had the fish platter with fries and green beans, which he loved! He is a very picky eater and he approves!

I ordered catering today for a important client meeting lunch and the food was amazing! The clients liked it so much they asked me to print out the name and address of the restaurant. The fried chicken and corn bread were the favorites. Best fried chicken in town!

My kitchen is being renovated at the moment. My husband and I didn't want fast food. We googled near by soul food, ordered lunch and it was delicious. So much so that we ordered for dinner as well. We were very impressed. To top it all off, the delivery option is a plus! It's hard to find made from scratch tasty food all in one. Great, great food!

Low key location, but amazing food and awesome staff. If you want home cooking this is your jam. If you eat here for lunch just make sure to schedule in an afternoon nap. So good.

I'm so impressed the food is delicious...Awesome!!! Thank God we have a good soulfood restaurant. Keep up the good work. One note the the place is clean good customers service. The floor was sticky more than likely someone popped the floor with the wrong chemicals.

I went today for my first time to try V's Kitchen and it did not disappoint! I tried the Hamburger scramble with the cabbage/collard mix and Mac n cheese. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I ordered and will definitely be returning. After reading some recent reviews, I was slightly concerned the food or service would not live up to my expectations. I was warmly greeted when I entered and promptly received my pickup order. During the drive back home, my entire car filled with the amazing scent of my food. The cabbage/collard mix had a depth of flavors, the perfect balance of savory, spice and sweetness. Generally collards can be bitter, but at V's they treat them right! The Mac n cheese was creamy and delicious as well, you can definitely taste the three cheeses. The cornbread was fresh, soft, and buttery. Everything that dreams are made of. Finally, the hamburger scramble was delicious and well seasoned. You can tell that they make their own gravy from scratch. Not only was I satisfied with the flavors in my plate, the portions were incredibly generous. Rest assured that they are doing soul food RIGHT at V's.

This was my first time going so I didn’t do a big order. I got a fish sandwich, a pork chop sandwich and a side of collard greens with cabbage. The sandwiches were very good. The greens were great! Will definitely be going back.

where to begin?! first off the food was amazing. I had the Fried Chicken wings with mac and cheese and collard greens a slice of corn bread and a sweet tea.(i was hungry lol). The young woman at the register suggested that and boy was she right, Raven she said her name was also equally amazing she spoke clearly and made eye contact the whole time! I wish i could take her with me to everywhere I Dine to take my orders.

I had the pleasure of visiting for the first time today. The customer service as soon as I walked through the door was impeccable! I really appreciated the genuine kindness. The food was absolutely delicious! I had oxtail, rice, mac and cheese, and cabbage. That plate didn’t stand a chance. I am already looking forward to visiting again to enjoy more of their delicious menu items. If I had known better I would have gotten a slice of cake. Thank you all!

Y'all, don't sleep on V's. I try something new every time I order from here and I'm never disappointed. The hamburger scramble and sweet potato fluff are both amazing, and they have great burgers and mac and cheese too!
