Chicago food has never been sweeter – especially for owners Chekell Hill (of Chekell’s SoulFood Palace) and Brian Moskiewicz (of Red Coal BBQ Family Restaurant), who call Chicago their hometown – although Hill is on the south side and Moskiewicz on the north side.
Their new restaurant, Soutside Soul, is a first in the barbecue and soul food scene: a collaboration between two seemingly competing companies. Although they come from two opposite sides of Chicago, the couple say one thing: They want to work together to provide the best Chicago-style soul cuisine in the Chippewa Valley through their new restaurant at 2839 Mall Dr. Suite 7, Eau Claire. . Southside Soul offers specialties like their Chicago Hot Dog (notable for its extra mustard and lack of ketchup!), Maxwell Street Polish, Catfish Fillets, and Polish Sausage, but also serves fan favorites like their Philly Cheesesteak, Gyro , Italian Beef, coleslaw, baked mac and cheese, cornbread, muffins and potato salad. (And that’s not to mention their delicious fries!)
If you’re looking for a unique menu item, be sure to check out The BigBee – a sandwich served on 14 inch French bread, complete with gyro meat, roast beef, corn beef, raw onion, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise and cheese.
Sample American classics like their burgers and cheeseburgers (or, if you’re in a more adventurous mood, their gyroburger). Or, enjoy their applications of fried okra, cheese curds (you heard that right!), Fries, Mexican street corn, and nachos.
It’s the perfect place to catch a game or hang out with the family – and if you’re watching a game, you can also grab chicken wings – boneless or whole.
Discover Southside Soul Mondays 11am to 10pm, Tuesday to Thursday 11am to 9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am to 10pm, and Sundays 11am to 8pm for on-site or take-out dining options.
