Muffer’s Kitchen (3 mins away)

From the website: When we were young we called our Grandmother "Muffer." Both of our Grandparents came to Binghamton in the 1930's from Bessemer, Alabama. One of the many legacies they left for us was the memory of how delicious Muffer's food was. So this year, to honor everything they gave us, we created Muffer's Kitchen. Muffer's is a small soul food restaurant that serves food just like Mama made it!


Jrama’s Soulfood and Barbecue Pit (5 mins away)

You will find BBQ Chicken, BBQ Ribs, Fried Chicken, BBQ Beef Links, Jerk Chicken, Fried Pork chop, Catfish, Pulled Pork, and more. Try their homestyle mac & cheese or one of their other amazing southern sides.
