According to the This Is It website, Craig Joseph inherited the family restaurant from his grandparents. Founder Frank Jones taught Joseph to follow these principles: always maintain public acceptance, don’t forget your roots, and always protect your wealth and share it with family and friends.

Joseph is now working with the fourth generation of family members to take ownership of the restaurant. “As he is teaching the ins and outs of owning a restaurant business to Christopher, one of his sons, Jessica, his daughter, and Thaddeus, his son-in-law, he preaches to them every day that they will only have continuous success if they nourish and respect their relationships with one another and anyone who has genuinely worked with them or he for the overall success of This Is It,” the website continued.

Oxtails, fried chicken, smothered pork chops, chicken and dumplings, and gumbo are just a few of the savory dishes on the This Is It menu. Sides of black-eyed peas, rice and gravy, greens, okra and tomatoes, and mashed potatoes add flavor to any entrée. And, don’t forget dessert! Assorted cakes and pies are available for those with a sweet tooth.
