Soul Satisfaction: Hard Knox Cafe

I just brunched with fellow Chowbaccan Dottore Gus at Hard Knox Cafe in The Dog Patch for a bit of soul food.

I had the linebacker portion of deliciously seasoned, perfectly-fried chicken and a waffle. That's three crispy pieces of cluck and a waffle nearly as big as the plate for ten bucks, America.

Herr Doktor went for the oxtails, which looked terrific, but I had my own mammoth portions to consume. We split sides of collards and red beans and rice. The collards were southern-style yet firm. The beans and rice had a nice filé kick. We even had enough left over to take out and share.

The place is dark and "Dog Patch Chic" but the food is good and plentiful for a good price.

  1. Stay tuned, Dogpatch Crawl coming soon. What do the sidewalk messages mean?

  2. How'd your pic of the sidewalk come out? You should post that wackiness.

  3. I'm quite keen on doing a series of stills and maybe a video walk-and-talk montage. Thoughts?
