Soul Food 

Delmonico's Diner

Turnip greens, sweet potato pie, cornbread and other mainstays on Delmonico's fresh buffet sit alongside the special of the day. Today it's chicken and dumplings, yesterday was chuck roast and tomorrow you'll find liver smothered with onions. And Friday? Of course, fried fish. Delmonico's Diner dishes up a down-home, mouth-watering array of soul food. It's friendly, it's lively, and it's been around for 30 years. Not surprising it's top-rated in our poll.
