Not fancy, phenomenal soul food - Chef Oji - featured on Diners Drive ins and Dives a few years ago - cash only, not cheap (but really good serving sizes), but great food only 1 block away on U St near 10th. My favorites - Beef Ribs (ask for the original ones), Shrimp & Grits, Catfish, Mac & Cheese & Sweet Potatoes - and the Meatloaf, too.

Famous, Iconic known for their Half-smoke. People love Ben's - famous for Obama stopping in unannounced in late 2008 - fair amount of soul food. I'm not that much of a fan of their food, except their best kept secret is their breakfast - inexpensive (or last time I was there) and really good basic breakfast food - but only until 10 45am. 1 minute after, and the grill is turned over for lunch! Great jukebox w/ great old school R&B, soul music selections.
