Stop by 6978 Soul Food this week and enjoy smothered pork chops, chicken, catfish and more at a 15 percent discount.
The West Side eatery, located at 6978 W. North Ave., is one of several participating in the first Chicago Black Restaurant Week (CBRW).
Created to bring awareness to black-owned eateries throughout Chicagoland, the week of discounts will run through Feb. 13, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Lauran Smith, a local PR expert, created CBRW because she had concerns that African-American owned eateries are not very well known. Positive exposure is always a good thing, and her ultimate goal is to expose these establishments to everyone.
There are quite a few hidden gems owned by African Americans, and we would love for you to get to know just who they are, Smith writes.
