Last Friday night, 6 of us went to the Old South for my Birthday dinner. It was my selection, and of course, I picked the Old South. You can never go wrong going there......always excellent food & service. And, a large selection of choices.

Small town diner feel, waitresses that know you by name, inexpensive food, home cooked style meals, and owners who are truly good people!
