Nana J’s Soulful Kitchen in Ocean Springs is a funky little place, just a bit out of the way, but it offers serious soul food.

This week, I am blogging on the theme of dinners, drive-ins and dives with that Coastal twist.

Nana J’s Soulful Kitchen is family-run, has a tiny menu every day offering just a few entrees to choose from, but the side dishes stand out just as tall. Look for homemade green beans; rice and gravy; and macaroni and cheese. You also will love the pork chop, fried chicken and wings.

This is a place to come when you are seriously hungry and need true sustenance, the essence of soul food.
