The only thing richer than the 73-year history of Paschal’s is the rich flavor of their soul-food cuisine. Paschal’s opened in 1947, and since its founding changed ownership to James Paschal and Herman J. Russell. Over the years, the restaurant has attracted many celebrities including activists like Martin Luther King Jr. and entertainers like Aretha Franklin. Paschal’s is best known for its signature crispy, fried chicken but also serves other soul food classics like braised ribs and smothered pork chops.
Pro tip: End your meal with a slice of their famous peach cobbler!
