7 Spots for Soul Food in Greater Phoenix

Even though the term wasn't coined until the 1960s, soul food is an American tradition, especially in the South. Dishes such as hominy and grits, corn bread, black-eyed peas, collard greens, and chitterlings remind Americans of home and family and comfort. Here are seven spots in the Valley ready to fill our soul food void.

Buzznbeez Good Food Truck

Christian Buze (also known as Chef Buzz), the grandson of the famed Mrs. White, has put his family's soul food on the road with a brightly painted food truck that makes regular stops throughout the Valley. Along with his partner, Beatrice "Bee" Bullock, the two serve up soul food classics like fried chicken, catfish, seven-cheese mac 'n' cheese, greens, and yams, in addition to rotating dishes with a global touch, like Indian coconut curry and Jamaican jerk chicken.
