my family gave a birthday party at Amy Ruth's the food was great price was even better. Service was a little slow but they did the best to make us happy and that was more than we could ask for. I will go back again for a more relaxed dinner with my husband. Best food I've had in a long time takes me back to grandma's cooking
southern cooking at its's best
By nereida on 7/12/2004
My visit to Amy Ruth's was a delight. The food was delicious and the servings plentiful. I was glad the the food is cooked to order so my meal was hot and my iced tea was great if tasted homemade not from a can.I tried the fried chicken, macaroni & cheese along with collard greens. Everything was tasty without being overpowering.I felt right at home like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's house.Others in my party tried the chicken & waffles (delicious they said , along iwth the ribs,( fell off the bone) and pork chops that were cleaned to the bone.The place is not fancy and that adds to the appeal.A young gentleman greeted my party at the door and welcomed us in. There was no wait and Amy Ruth's is opened 24 hours.
True Southern Comfort Food
By hungryjacq on 1/12/2004
To someone (like me) who grew up south of the Mason-Dixon, the idea of going out for southern food--in New York City--seemed pretty ridiculous. Until I went to Amy Ruth's. Whether you get the ribs, oxtail, fried fish, anything!!! you'll be a happy (stuffed) camper. Just make sure you save room for dessert. The peach cobbler is a must-have.
The Best Fried Chicken & Waffles Anywhere
By Thugfessional on 3/1/2003
I am a true Harlemite which means I a born and raised in Harlem. However, it wasn't until one late night of watching Conan O'Brian did I find out about Amy Ruth's. Now, I had Chicken & Waffles in many places from Harlem to California (Rosco's, 22 West, Well's, etc.), but never has it been as good as Amy Ruth's. Rosco's in California was my favorite before now, respectfully. But thank-you Amy Ruth for bringing Harlem's famous dish back home.
