well I personally don't think the food could be called soul food..That's not real down home soul cooking...How you gonna have a puerto rican cooking soul food...that makes no sense...I heard the smothered turkey chops was really good, so that's what I ordered..however they were fried hard with gravy poured on top..The macaroni tasted like it came from the box, the potatoes in my potato salad was not done, the greens were not even cut, they were very big leaves, so you would need a real big mouth to eat them..Now the icetea was excellent, I think I got full off of the icetea...the cornbread was good too, but they could of gave me more than 1 piece...I pretty much wasted my money, I took all my food home, and not even my kids wanted to eat it...but they did the the lollipops..Oh now my sister ordered catfish and that was pretty tasty...I don't think I will want to go back to that restaurant unless someone was picking up the tab, but if I have to pay out of my own pocket, aint nothing up..

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.
