For food with soul, the rustic southern cafe, Urban Roots, is a destination for the Deep Deuce District. Urban Roots is a communal space where food and art intersect with events such as open mic nights, live bands, poetry readings, improv, and more.
Having been there myself several times, it is hard to pick just one favorite dish because they have all been delicious. Let’s start with the Catfish and Grits with their perfect seasoning and presentation. The perfectly cooked greens and catfish, and the super creamy grits make for a perfectly balanced dish. When I visited Urban Roots with a tour group from Foodie Foot Tour, another person described this dish as being full of soul, and I agree completly.
