Mad at the world women – I went to this place on Saturday 2/16/08. When my boyfriend said we were going to M and M's I was excited but I am used to going to the other M and M's on MLK Blvd. Our waitress had major attitude from the moment we walked in. We ordered and I had the worst chicken sausage patty ever it was dry and tasteless and and really inedible. My grits were okay a little too lumpy for my taste. The biscuits were pretty good however I usually eat mine with syrup however I was afraid to request any because when I asked for a spoon the waitress got more attitude took her time bringing the spoon then looked at me as if she couldn't understand why I bothered her for a spoon. I don't know about anyone else but I am not accustomed to eating grits with a fork.
As we sat there and ate our food we watched this waitress give rude service to the two people in the place. The other staff was loud and unprofessional the whole time we were there. All they did was complain about men I wanted to eat not listen to another male bashing session with women who have bad attitudes. All the women seemed to be mad at the world I heard one male voice in the back and I feel sorry for him cause I know he has too deal with a lot. I will never go to this place again there are way too many place to eat in L.A. to have to put up with bad attitudes and substandard food.
Editorial Review – Family-friendly restaurant serves affordable, home-style soul food like meatloaf, smothered chicken, liver and onions, plus burgers, sandwiches and traditional desserts.
They put the M's in Yummy! – Sure this place needs a face lift, but you'll need lipo after eating here. Great soul food with HUGE portions. I usually dine here for lunch. My favorite: Fried Chicken Lunch w/ Mac & Cheese, String Beans and a glass of lemonade. Other great side dishes are their Dressing and Yams. YuM&My!
Waste of Time – The food is just OK. However, the location is awful, the restaurant itself is in need of major repair, and the staff needs an attitude adjustment.
For $21.00 I got to sit in a craked leather booth, at a semi-clean table and eat greasy food served to me by a rude woman.
Tip of the Day...go somewhere else.
Mixed experience – Our first visit to this branch was very mixed. While we absolutely loved their corn muffins, greens, and mac and cheese, the other items were not as successful. The fried chicken seems excessively greasy, even if it is tasty, and Chris really found his pork chop really dry and flavorless. Some in our group found the potato salad too sweet, while others really liked it. Service was kind of slow and not particularly friendly. Curiously, they were out of french fries, and ended up bringing a different side item without checking with us first. I can't say that we will be hurrying back.
Abysmal – My sister and I had the worst experience at M & M Soul Food on Centinenla on Sat., 8/10/02 at 11:30a.m. We were not greeted upon sitting down and then the server threw 2 menus at us again without a greeting or a word. I ordered hot links w/scrambled eggs, home potatoes and a side of bacon. My sister had fried chicken breakfast w/grits. I asked for eggs lightly scrambled and received a plate full of literally egg juice! the bacon tasted awful & biscuits were horribly greasy. worst of all server NEVER came to check on us and was in fact seated several tables away eating her own breakfast!! We were charged $18.40 for this. Food and service here were abysmal! Will NEVER go back.
Bomb Ass Soul Food!!! – One of the three best soul food restaurants in LA. The fried chicken is the best and the portions are huge!!!
