Rhonda Williams is finally ready to open her 750 Soul restaurant on East 13th Street.

Soul food fans who loved the food Rhonda Williams served when she ran Rachel’s Kitchen at 818 N. Mosley have been waiting three long years for her promised return.

She’ll open the doors on Wednesday, Sept. 22, and will again serve the burgers, catfish, pork chops, meatloaf, sweet potatoes, greens, stewed okra and other soul food specialties she offered at Rachel’s Kitchen from 2014 until 2018, when she had to close to care for her ailing mother.
