Austin is never going to vie with Jackson MS or Birmingham AL for soul food supremacy but we do have one good joint where, if you squint out the windows just right you can almost fool yourself into believing you’re in Oxford MS. Galloway has been feeding the 12th and Chicon neighborhood for over a decade now. The Galloway family do it right. A big plate of meat and vegetables will set you back $8 and it’s enough to feed two people.
Anything that’s on the steamline in a brown gravy is a good bet as Chef Galloway has a very good hand with his sauces.
Our very favorite item though is the fried chicken. It’s cooked in a cast iron pan and comes out all ruddy red hued with a good crackle to the skin.
