Best Fried Green Tonatoes Ever!

Great fried green tomatoes ever! Great chicken salad, spinach salad, and sweet potato fries. Service is fine. A little on the pricey side. But the food is good.

This place has been fantastic for the last 10 years I have been eating and shopping here, but NO MORE! The new owners have ruined this place. The prices are still very high but the quality has gone WAY down. I used to love their grilled shrimp in the deli - but last visit they were half the size and... More

This was my second time to visit this store with my family. Whenever my wife and I visit my son and his wife, we always come here and stock up on items that we can't find where we come from. They have a wide variety of drinks, sauces, etc. items we have never found anywhere else. Their gift section is... More

What a neat place. Tons of gourmet and hard to find items. Lots of great gift ideas. Saw the cafe and the great looking menu. Ordered lunch, but was disappointed with my sandwich. The bread was too thick and very stale. Ended up taking the bread off. I guess on a different day it would have been much better. The... More

My first visit to Southern Season was one of complete elation. I couldn't believe that such a store, with EVERYTHING I could possibly want for kitchen and home , including prepared food,... More

Wonderful culinary store. Made me wish I had more room in my suitcase! Great variety of locally produced nuts and sauces, as well was housewares, wine and gifts. They also have a cafe

This is a very unique place, offering a huge variety of tens of thousands of local/regional artisan goods. Anything edible that you can imagine can be found from sauces to soda, salsa to cookies. There is a coffee/drink bar, a deli, prepared food area, candy/chocolates counter, nice wine and beer/cider selection, a wide diversity of kitchen goods, pots/pans/tools, local gifts,... More

I like Southern Seasons, but I do find its prices very high. I go there when I can't find something somewhere else. I also take my visitors there as it is something to see. I recently went to their yearly sale, and found NOTHING that I wanted. They just put all the items that haven't sold on sale, but not... More

We love, love A Southern Season. While living in Chapel Hill, we visited often for specialty food items and holiday treats. They have nearly everything you can imagine. I think the seasonal and holiday-themed chocolates in the counters at the front are probably my favorites. Stop in sometime! You'll be glad you did.

I visited SS for the first time while visiting family in Chapel Hill. Wow! It's huge. An amazing selection of just about anything edible & drinkable and just about anything you'd need to prepare it. We got take-out dinners from the deli, and each dish was superb -- barbequed chicken, kale salad, shrimp salad. This is not a discount grocery... More
