This place on the shore of India Basin on Innes Avenue once thrived with its close proximity to the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, but the demise of the shipyard and the ghettoization of the local neighborhood (the infamous Double Rock Public Housing Project is on the hillside across the street) took their toll and by the late 1990s this Soul Food restaurant was out of business.
