Mrs. White's is an institution when it comes to soul food in Phoenix. Decor is minimal, with the menu written on the walls, yet there's plenty of atmosphere. Just like visiting a small soul food eatery in the Deep South, with excellent catfish, smothered chicken, oxtails, greens, cornbread, and peach cobbler. Only problem with eating here is that afterward you may want a nap to recover. And that's a problem only if you can't sneak away from work long enough to take one. Read our review.
