Rack&Soul Has New Home Right Next Door to Old Home

Written by

Soul food lovers who enjoy not walking very far from campus to obtain your soul food, rejoice! Relatively recent neighborhood addition Rack&Soul has just reopened after a brief period of dormancy. The popular chicken and ribs purveyor has moved right next door to a smaller location on 109th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam.

Their new digs, with dark wood paneled floors and a curved saloon-style bar, are distinctly classier than their old Tom’s Restaurant-variety ones. The nice man behind the counter explained that the rent was too high at their original location, prompting the move. Bwog welcomed him to the Upper West Side, where every vacant storefront becomes a bank or Duane Reade eventually, and skipped off into the lovely fall afternoon.

    The food at this place is ok. Not anywhere near as good as Dinosaur BBQ.

    Furthermore, the staff is terrible. I mean TERRIBLE. They act like you are bothering them.

    Ever try to get delivery? If they dont hang up on you first, and you get an order in, it always takes over an hour to get there. Why? Who knows...all the food is premade because it is BBQ.

    After an hour, you have to call to check and see where your order is. Again, they get pissy.

    Then some big line cook ends up delivering your food 90 minutes after you ordered it.
