Martin’s Soul Food opened its fifth restaurant this July at 15435 Warwick Boulevard in the Denbigh area of Newport News.  Martin’s Soul Food got its start several years ago when owner Tim Martin began selling plates of food at a Virginia Beach gas station, where he met his business partner Cynthia Terry.

The Newport News restaurant can seat about 80 people and has a banquet room for large parties.  Menu items include catfish, country fried steak, meatloaf, fried chicken, yams, fried okra, oxtails, chitterlings, crab cakes, cobbler and more.  Martin’s also offers lunch specials and kid’s dinners.  Martin’s Soul Food plans to continue expanding in the Hampton Roads area and hopes to introduce a breakfast menu to their Newport News and Gloucester locations in the near future.
