There's another place to eat in downtown Duluth and just reading the menu makes my mouth water!

A new soul food restaurant is officially open in downtown Duluth as of Monday (May 3rd). Doc Witherspoon's Soul Food Shack had been preparing for the opening and teasing an opening date in the near future. Now, that time is officially here!

We first learned about the new restaurant back in April. I was driving through the area near our studios and I saw a sign in the window. I did some research and was very happy with what I found!

As mentioned, the restaurant features soul food. Their menu includes favorites like burgers, sandwiches, wings, soup and more. They also offer desserts and sides like collard greens, fried rice and beans.

The big news of the grand opening was given with just one days notice on the restaurant's Facebook page Sunday (May 2nd). Of the opening, owners wrote they know "it’s been a wait" for customers. The restaurant was actually supposed to open in early April for a soft opening but that was postponed. However, they said the wait was worth it, saying they've "spent this extra time making sure things are just the way they need to be for y’all."

The spot is located at 319 West 1st Street in Duluth. They are also open for carry out. Get ready to feast!

This is just one of a handful of new additions to the downtown Duluth restaurant scene. Recently, a taqueria opened in the area, offering tacos, tortas and other Mexican dishes.
