From Mississippi to Chicago, the honored Luella was the first in her family to this city,
and bringing her Southern roots with her, she got down to the nitty-gritty,
to keep the food alive in her kitchen, because to leave her Southern food behind would’ve been a pity!
And now her great-grandson Darnell Reed, with over 18 years of chef experience, has opened up a restaurant in honor of her name,
to bring Luella’s southern food back to life and grow it to fame!

Shrimp and Grits are the most talked about, 
so it was the first thing we wanted to try out
With New Orleans barbecue shrimp and cream cheese grits, 
from the first bite, we can see why it’s such a hit!
The Pimento Cheeseburger is one that will blow your mind, 
good enough to be the best burger in Chicago, because the flavors are one of a kind
A Slagel Farms dry aged burger, sunny-side-up egg, with pimento cheese,
on a Brioche bun, you’ll eat the whole thing with ease
The Nashville Hot Chicken and Waffles will give you a sweet kick,
with Nashville Hot Sauce and Maple Syrup, it does the trick,
plus you can eat the crispy chicken with your hands and then give them a good lick!
Finally, after all that good Southern food, you can move on to dessert,
like the Beignets, that are so good it hurts!
Fried dough pillows, with confectioners sugar, it tastes like a dream,
served warm and soft, with a sweetness that will make you scream!

Luella’s Southern Kitchen is making the Lincoln Park area proud,
to serve food from the south that is sure bringing in a crowd
Because everyone wants to have a taste of Southern good cooking,
and once you try Luella’s Southern Kitchen, there’ll be no more looking!
