Hands down the ice tea is fabulous. The service and the atmosphere were great. The tootsie pops, the cute carry bags and the mega ice tea bottles were nice because these personal touches made the place memorable. However for the prices of the entree they could have offer more the one piece of cornbread but it . I ordered the fried catfish and was disappointed because the fish had no flavor. The mac n cheese tasted like velveeta cheese instead of hard cheese. The yams were way too sweet. Overall the food good but I am not in a rush to go back.

I think Ms. Tootsie'd food is awsome from the first time I went up to eat there It was very tasteful , good quantity of food the service was excellent .... I have been telling all my friends about it. I love the little take out bag and the tootsie pop or the tootsie roll that come after the meal .. nice atmosphere... and good cooks behind the seens keep up the good work...and also the cornbread is the bomb... don't stop what you all are doing .... I will be back I am from DE.

My son is a student at Temple University and during a recent overnight visit with him he escorted my mom and I to Ms. Tootsie's. I must say that the food was great. I thought that the portions were of good size. The space is small however the atmosphere was great. Would definetly go again.

If you haven't been, you have to check this place out. No doubt, the city's best soul food. Great atmoshere, friendly service and food that will have you coming back. Smothered porkchop came with choice of sides. Went with collards and mac and cheese and was very glad I did. I'll be back soon to work my way through the menu. It's BYO, which is great. But if you want a drink or cocktail, go next to neighboring Ms. Tootsie's Restaurant Bar Lounge (RBL) while you put your name in on a busy Saturday night and enjoy the beautiful space as well.

I just dined at Ms. Tootsie's RBL recently and had to write. The bar is sleek, but the dining space is smart, sophisticated, stylish but still warm and inviting. The service is spot on and warm too, which I prefer. I had fried chicken, collards and mac/cheese. And I. Ate. It. All. Had the nerve to order pound cake, but the common sense to bring it home-- and have it for breakfast. Delicious. Thanks Ms. Tootsie! You should definitely check it out.

The atmosphere of the place is nice. The food was not. We had people come from NY, Del, Wil, Long Island. The food was like where am I. We travel a distance to received food that was not homemade. The mac and cheese tast like Kraft with Veveeta. sauce.The fish taste like is flour with corn meal and I never had so many bones in my Whiting fish. Toostie 's, stick with the lounge.
