Re: “What Is Killing the East Bay's Soul Food Restaurants?

i have been to almost all of the restaurants mentioned in this article. unfortunately, they all suffered from one or more of the following:
1. The food was/is just not THAT good
2. The service is/was AWFUL ie, rude, and HORRIBLY slow. i 'm in to the slow food movement, but come on...!!!
3. The restaurant was/is filthy ie, roaches, dirty tables, dishes
4. Food is overpriced. i have seen a cat fish dinner for $20.00 and it's not big or tasty enuf to be worth it.
5. As the article eluded to: Poor management ie, posting store hours that were not honored, untrained in business accounting and other management skills and knowledge.

i won't name names here cuz some of these folks i know or have known and i don't want to hurt their businesses or ruin the reputation of owners of former businesses. BUT i am telling the truth.

Has anyone been to the soul food/creole Sunday brunch that Pam the Funktress from the Coup operates in San Bruno? Heard it's good but have never been.

BTW, i'm Black and always give Black businesses my money and the benefit of the doubt. But for whatever reason, we can't seem to get our restaurants right and sometimes we end up selling out to our Asian brothers and sisters like LA Bayou did or we just close down.
