  1. Yo yo yo, this soup is off da chain bangin! A little kick, and a lil smoke all finished with the creamy peanutty flava-flav! Ooooh my Ooookra, how could I forget, tender leafy little dream nuggets of greens. And all the right seasonings, this soup is something mean.

  2. Jesus didn’t turn water into wine, he turned it into West African Chicken Peanut

  3. A thick soup with so many flavors. It is impossible for me to describe, but this is my ultimate soup craving. PS – I hate sweet potatoes but love this soup!

  4. I was excited to try this after all the great reviews. but to be honest I am not sure what all the hype is about. I know I will be the most hated person for this review, but im just sayin. there are others at DGS that I love much more.

  5. please please make this a regular on the menu. it is incredibleeee and i need it more !!!!

  6. I jumped off boats and swam across lake Monroe in a full scuba diver outfit in order to get this soup before it ran out. You will not be disappointed with the luscious texture, the breadth of flavors, and the satisfying warmth it brings to your body. Paired with Marie sharps hot sauce, this soup will be your spiritual guide in a journey across West Africa.

  7. I know that y’all hear this constantly, but I really feel as if this should be a daily soup. The average rating and high number of votes cast for this soup tell the tale. Chicken Tortilla’s sibling if you will. I could go back and forth between the two every other day.

  8. This stuff is 2 legit to quit. Okay? I pity da fool who hasn’t tried this.

  9. This soup changed my life!!! I close my eyes on every bite and imagine I’m on a safari in Western Africa. Every piece of chicken roars like a lion, every piece of okra prances down my throat like a gazelle. The sweet potatoes provide the warmth of an African sunset. Every bite is a mystery. Every bite is an adventure. Thanks for making me a more confident person, West African Chicken Peanut Soup.

  10. If I could afford a 11,600 gallon tanker of this soup I would cop no lie.

  11. As an African myself, I LOVE this soup. It reminds me of my homeland with every bite I take. Please never stop making this! Love you!

  12. I check the menu daily waiting for this soup to appear. It is no longer a want but a NEED.

  13. After trying the West African Chicken Peanut I find myself thinking about it ALL the time. It is perfection.

  14. Don’t let the name scare you.. THIS SOUP IS AMAZING!! I hooked all my friends on it and it’s one of my favorites here.

  15. This was the one of the two soups on my usual routine. I always get chilli, and something new. Needless to say I’m never disappointed and wasn’t with this new adventure.

  16. I lived in Bloomington for 6 years and this soup is one of the things I miss most since moving away. I check the menu every time I visit in hopes I’ll be able to taste this sweet nectar again.

  17. Outstanding and hearty soup that balances a creamy and sweet peanut butter with lightly spicy and acidic peppers and onions. Martha if you’re reading this, come home I miss you.

  18. Best soup I’ve ever had. I can’t really explain it any other way.

  22. Curiously delicious! I tried this soup based on the comments alone. I am so glad I did. It was a variety of well balanced flavors and it was very filling. I will definitely have this soup again!

  24. This soup is so good!! Bring it back! I wish it was available more often.

  25. Damn Good Soup! This has a little bit of a kick to it; love that.

  28. This is my favorite soup here! I wish it was offered more often (wink wink nudge nudge)

  29. One of life’s little addictions for me. it’s thick and flavorful.

  30. My favorite soup here. I check the website daily and make it a point to come to Darn Good when this soup is offered!

  31. this is one of my favorites. I will drop almost anything to go get this soup when I see it online. I would wait in a moving line going uphill in the snow with no shoes on for this soup. sometimes I eat the styrofoam bowl after eating the soup because there are remnants up in there and I can’t bring myself to throw them away.

  32. Wow! The name sas it all. DARN GOOD SOUP! More, more!

  33. This is my absolute favorite soup you guys make. I check your website everyday I’m on Kirkwood, hoping to see it on the menu!
