About Us


Aunt Berta’s Kitchen was founded in 1997 by Alberta Ferebee with the intent to become legendary.With a prayer and a known purpose, Alberta set out to live the restaurateur life. Believe it or not, Aunt Berta’s Kitchen began as take out only in our now dining room area. After four years of success, Alberta purchased the entire property and Aunt Berta’s Kitchen Inc. was in full effect.

Aunt Berta’s Kitchen makes down-home style soul food that tastes great, and it’s cooked with your health in mind.

People of all ethnic backgrounds love the soul foods or “comfort foods” that many of us grew up with. Yet in today’s busy world, it’s hard for most of us to find the time to cook the old-fashioned way, even if we know the recipes and ingredients.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to eat this delicious tasting food whenever you wanted, or to offer it to your guests for a party, family affair, or organization function? And if you could get the great taste of ribs, chicken, greens, and all the rest without all of the fats traditionally used to bring out the flavor, you could enjoy this great cuisine without feeling guilty about it.

Most of us don’t have the skills, the knowledge of cooking techniques, the access to the old-fashioned recipes, or the ability to combine the ingredients to bring these great tasting foods to our table. So we fall back on the fast-foods, the pre-packaged market meals, or the tired old restaurant fare.

At Aunt Berta’s Kitchen, we cook the food today that you grew up loving. We may even cook it as well as your Mom did. And because we have a lifetime of training in professional food service and knowledge of modern dietetics, we’ve been able to alter the old-fashioned recipes to make them more healthful while still tasting great.

We bring a heritage of Southern-style soul food together with a lifetime of experience as a food service professional to make Aunt Berta’s Kitchen historic in its’ own right. Our first location is Oaklyn, NJ and our second soon to open location is Berlin, NJ each convenient to South Jersey, Delaware and Philadelphia. You can enjoy our food three ways: take-out, sit-down at our restaurant, or have us cater your next party, event, or affair. Once you’ve tried Aunt Berta’s you’ll become another satisfied customer.


With a dash of love, a pinch of purpose, and a sprinkle of passion we create the best food for the best customers. We stand on 3 major things that have kept us in business for 19 years.


Our Purpose is to inspire those who think they are not worthy, employ those who have been labeled as useless, and serve with excellence.
