Best Soul Food Restaurant

Courtney's Restaurant and Lounge

3526 Brenbrook Drive, (410) 655-3645

Posted 9/13/2000

When we're in the mood for finger-lickin' good, we head not to the Colonel, but toward Randallstown and Courtney's There the ribs are spicy sweet, the chicken is fried to a fault, and the sides are big and Southern-style, from candied yams to chunky mac and cheese to ham-hock-scented collards. Don't miss the crunchy, sweet buffalo shrimp, so good you'll want a double order, or the astounding catfish with pepper slaw. This is the kind of fish that converts die-hard mammal eaters.

Either way, don't be surprised to find you're developing a drawl.
