    I’ve only been to Henry’s once since they opened. This was early on and it seemed like they had a ways to go in terms of the appearance of the interior and the customer service. I didn’t get to try the sweet potato pie, unfortunately, since it was sold out when I got there later in the day. The fried chicken and sides were all good. What I’d expect. I wasn’t blown over, but I should probably give it another try, and arrive earlier to ensure myself a slice of the pie.

    Its pretty good, the pie is super sweet – i cant eat it. I do prefer the food at UHOP, 6th & M. funny enough thats where I first heard about Henry’s pie. (“girl you cant get one piece, you’ve got to get the whole pie!”) I went to their location at 17th & T? …now that place was super funky. Food was the same, good but not UHOP.

    Henry’s always seemed to be out of something or the other (white bread, really !?)each time I went so I gave up. I find it hard to believe that it’s owned by the same “Henry” as the one on Florida Ave NW.
    Seems like a totally different operation.
    Sweet Potato Pie ? I prefer the banana pudding, but they don’t (or didn’t) carry it at the K St location.
