Best Soul food in Sacramento

About Us 

It is almost impossible to have grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area and not have eaten at the The Original House of Soul, created by Cattie McCarver in 1968, in the city of Vallejo, CA.


Long before her legendary restaurant would become a local icon , McCarver spent long days stirring in cast iron pots, and rolling pieces of farm fresh chicken in her secret batter. Times were tough in the early days, while peace loving hippies pretested the Vietnam War and Marvin Gaye was singing: What's Going On? 


Little did Cattie McCarver know , While her young son Ruben pulled at her apron strings while she worked busily in the Kitchen of her restaurant , 50 years later her same little man would be serving up fried chicken, pork chops and other savory dishes would become a household name.
