A call to OMG was unable to clarify the situation: the man who answered the phone was not aware that the business was listed as being for sale.
It is also unclear what impact this may have on the apparently stalled Johnson’s Southern Comfort on Jefferson Avenue (originally slated for November 2011).
Located on a quiet strip just off Broad Street, OMG Café is a tiny spot serving up huge helpings of the kind of comfort food nutritionists rail against and grandmothers revel in — fried fish, meatloaf and macaroni and cheese.
Sure, you can find these things on many menus, but what makes OMG stand out is the obvious passion the people behind this establishment have for both home cooking and hospitality.
I just got a crazy idea: There is a series of amazing restaurants between the traffic circle at 25th Jefferson and M and my house. We need to capitalize on that.
I call it the Church Hill Challenge.
The basic idea is a walking and eating challenge tour that begins at The Roosevelt with something yummy, and then winds to down Jefferson to Alamo BBQ for Texas Train Wreck, back to 25th via Clay to OMG Café for chicken and waffles, a stop at Captain Buzzy’s for caffeine, then to Buff’s Corner for a slice, and then to Str8 Outta Philly for the full 18 inch sub.
Style Weekly’s Southern meets Philly at Church Hill familiars OMG Café and Str8 Out of Philly has more good words for 2 of the new neighborhood joints.
Jon and Leah Nelson visit OMG Cafe for richmond.com and come away happy:
OMG Café must have a lot of faith in its chicken and waffles ($9.99) if they are immortalized on the wall, so we couldn’t resist. When the dish appeared and the friendly chef saw our mouths drop, he affectionately shouted, “O. M. G.” Okay, now we get the name. […] The beauty of OMG Café is that it knows what it is and does it well. It may not be for everyone, but if you don’t mind a deep-fried indulgence every now and then, OMG Café should make your list of casual eats.
OMG Café: The owner at this new Church Hill spot, Deandre Johnson, says the restaurant is selling 100 orders of chicken and waffles a day from a list of soul food options. “We have large portions and we don’t use any canned food,” he says. Smothered chicken and pork chops, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh cabbage are other menu highlights; most entrees are less than $9. 412 N. 25th St. 269-0531. omgcafelounge.web.com.
