Wondering where A Taste of Soul got its start? Our successful restaurant was founded by a woman with a passion for cooking and a home kitchen. When word got out from friends of the family that she had some of the best home cooking in town, orders started coming in from nursing homes, businesses and neighborhoods. Thus, A Taste of Soul was born.

Today, our kitchen has moved to 690 Hertel Avenue where we can serve fresh food to everyone in our community daily. We hope you'll join us on this journey to spread love through southern home cooking.

Call (716) 939-2004 now to place an order with us. And don't forget to try our famous buffalo chicken wing dip.

We guarantee our food to be tasty
