Amy Ruth Moore Bass was a native Alabamian. A devout Christian, she was the wife of Elijah Bass Sr., the mother of 10 children (7 daughters and 3 sons); and the grandmother of 12 grandchildren. Amy Ruth was also a farmer, a gardner, the world's best cook and a very friendly person. She was a long time member of Jerusalem AME Church, where she was a Sunday School Teacher and she sang in the church choir. Above all, Amy Ruth loved her family.She taught all of her children and grandchildren how to love each other, to look-out for one another, and to respect themselves as well as others. By her example, she also taught them how to love God and to put God first in all they did.
When I go to this place, I really have to have an empty stomach. They really give you your moneys worth. I just wish they did deliveries to Brooklyn. But I always did say this to myself, whenever I plan a party, I will be hiring them to Cater it for me.
Roll over Silvia's, There is a new Soul food restraunt claiming the thrown. When I first walked into this restaraunt I started to salavate. Wonderful. The People were nice and the service prompt. But what caught me was the taste. Yummmmmmmmmmy. The Lemonaide was bangin, and I loved the mac and cheese. but what I get most are all the smothered Chicken and Pork chops.
This place is great! 2 thumbs way up. The place is a lil small though
I had always seen the restaurant there and passed, but I never went there to ya know, eat. But I went there for my Birthday, for the first time, and OMGoodness..... I fell in love with they food. I had smothered pork chops , black eyed peas, and cornbread. It was absolutely delicious.
Man O Man I have heard alot of talk about Amy Ruths for a few years, now that I recently moved uptown its walking distance from me. I have yet to step it up and order something other than the Chicken & Waffles, cause its so damn good, why settle for something else. My saturday Morning/afternoon/evening spot at any given time hook me up with that special batter of waffles and the soulful crispy southern come to harlem fried chicken
I've heard mant rave reviews about Amy Ruth's. So many that I couldn't wait to try their food. I tried it for the first time about 2 years ago on a Friday afternoon. I had fish, mac n cheese, and collard greens with a glass of lemonade. The lemonade was acidic (the lemons must have been left in the pitcher too long) and the fish had no flavor. The mac n cheese was ok although it tastes as if ketchup had been added to it and the collards were good. I decided to give it another try about 2 weeks ago. After coming from a club on an early Sunday morning (about 3am). I had smothered pork chops (now those were the bomb), mac n cheese (I don't know why I tortured myself with those again) and collard greens (those were good). My husband had chicken n waffles. His chicken was great it was well seasoned and the waffles were ok. Over all I wasn't really impressed with the food. I guess my expectations were too high.
