Soul on the go


Nothing hits the spot like genuine, made-with-love soul food. If you’re looking to get your fix for some good ol’ Southern comfort cuisine, call up Ivory’s Take-Out Restaurant in Mount Dora.

Located on Grandview Street, Ivory’s has served up yummy vittles like black-eyed peas, neck bones, ox tail, curry goat, and lima beans since 2008. Though there are a few patio tables outside the restaurant, owner Maria Thomas says what makes her place unique is it is strictly take-out, and that’s just fine with their steady and loyal customers.

They serve both breakfast and lunch, and Thomas says they’re reasonably priced. For example, most breakfast dishes are around $5 and a cheeseburger and fries is only $4.

“And we hand pat them out, so they are fresh, never frozen,” Thomas explains. “We cook to order so you have to give us some time to make your food, about 15 minutes.”
