Corrine’s is Camden’s go-to soul food joint. It’s no frills, straightforward, fantastic food. Everything on the menu is a winner, but you’re crazy if you don’t try the fried chicken. If you want something more traditional, go for cajun pig’s feet or beef oxtails. Corrine’s has been a Camden favorite since 1990, and after one visit it’ll be yours too.

2. Aunt Berta's Kitchen

Aunt Berta’s Kitchen has been serving up classic soul food just outside the Camden border since 1998. The menu is peppered with great options, including collards, cabbage, candied yams, baked mac & cheese, fried fish, roasted chicken, pig’s feet, ribs, potato salad, cornbread and, of course, sweet potato pie.

Ms. Nancy’s serves up authentic soul food with a healthy twist, in the heart of Merchantville. There are vegetarian options, lunch specials, family and party trays and corporate lunches. Even better, Ms. Nancy’s menu is available for take-out or delivery to surrounding towns. What could be better than chicken and waffles delivered to your door?

Freddy’s is Camden’s go-to place for authentic Spanish soul food. Try the mofongo, either shrimp or pork, and savor the huge sides of rice and beans.
