Growing up, Ouida Cook spent summers cooking alongside her grandmother. Years later, while working at the tax office, she decided to make a change. On the way home, she stopped at the grocery store for a few necessary ingredients. A few hours later, Ouida left home with sixteen plates of meatloaf and mashed potatoes to sell. The meals quickly sold out, and soon Soul2Soul was born. It offers a homey atmosphere and bold dishes that have visitors coming back for more. This mac & cheese in Galveston is recommended with the fried pork ribs and banana pudding for dessert.
