If it looks like this counter-serve deli has been here forever, that’s because it has. Henry’s has been serving up comfort food like fried whitling, baked chicken, mac and cheese, and ribs in this location for more than 50 years. Not only is the food filling, you get a lot of it; each main comes with a choice of up to two generously portioned sides, plus your choice of bread (opt for the cornbread). But the dish that keeps customers coming back again and again is the sweet potato pie, The shop sells over 100,000 of these savory treats a year; it’s reported that President Barack Obama was even a fan. You can order a whole pie or get it by the slice. While there are a few seats along a counter in the window, the food is served in a takeout container so it’s best to take it to go. Henry’s also has another location in Maryland, a short drive from National Harbor.
