When it comes to soul food, Camden knows exactly what it’s doing. You can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants listed here: they’re all so unbelievably good, you’ll want soul food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

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.
