You might just miss this restaurant if you aren’t staying farther down the Las Vegas Strip .

It’s located across the street from the Stratosphere .

It always seems to be crowded and if you happen to go into the M and M Soul Food Restaurant , you’ll understand why.

As often as I go to Vegas, I had heard of this restaurant buut never visited becayse I didn’t know where it was.

I’m sorry that I missed this place .

The food that they serve here is what a lot of Southern blacks , like my parents, who moved to New York from North and South Carolina, grew up eating.

There on the menu were things that I remember my family members making, shrimp and grits, which the restaurant only makes on the weekends , smothered pork chops, fried chicken, chitterlings, short ribs, meat loaf smothered with gravy,and what I had oxtails with gravy.

The sides are also what I grew up on and still make by the way , collard greens , fried okra, mac and cheese , potato salad , rice and beans , and black eyed peas .

Just looking at the restaurant menu,which closes at 9pm every night, makes my mouth water .

I don’t know what took me so long to discover this restaurant , but I am so glad that I did .
