Only one letdown at Old South is no sausage gravy. I don't like friggin cream, pepper gravy. Ick! I spew it from my mouth. That aside, this place is fantastic and no sausage gravy is not worth stealing a star from them! OS was packed when I dropped by around 8:30 am today. Only one space left. I was by... More

My husband and I ate lunch here and was it ever good! I ordered the fried chicken breast off the special board. I was a little nervous because a lot of places will over cook chicken and dry it out.

Tasty, Southern Style food, without the fatback. I'm not Jewish but, I do, like to be as Kosher, as possible.They don't season there veggies with all that (animal fat) and greet you with such a warm welcome, it makes you want to come back for more.

Went with my mom. Haven't been there in 30 years. It's still just as good, now, as it was then. Fried chicken breast is boneless.
