Great service, excellent soul food. So, I did what I always do when my husband and I are traveling to a city looking for local flavor - I did a review search on the places people told us about. Ms. Tootsie's reviews helped us decide and I'm glad we did. Our waitress was straight up Black Southern Princess! She guided us through our decisions of smothered porkchops, mac/cheese and collards. I agree that the cornbread will melt in your mouth! They ran out of the special butter so I can't comment on that. The best part of the evening after the food was the tour she gave us of the restaurant. Little does she know - her great service may get them my husband's coporate business. The one complaint I have was that the drink specials tasted horrible - the great news is that they replaced the drinks until I was happy. Looking for good soul food in a jazzy urban setting - this place is it. Oh, don't forget to swing by, put your name on the list and enjoy downtown until your table is ready. They called my cell 45 min into the listed 1 hour wait.
