While fried chicken is their specialty I decided on the rib eye. It was the best rib eye I have eaten in a long time. No fancy seasoning...just a fresh cut of beef with baked potato and garden salad. When I go back I will try the chicken since so many people in the area raved about it. Staff is... More

A great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, set in the middle of New Market! Peanut soup and fried chicken can't be beat, and the rest of the menu is great, too! Don't miss Southern Kitchen if you're traveling in the Shenandoah Valley!

This is an easily accessible restaurant with plenty of parking. The food was so delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. They had unworkable jukeboxes on each table which brought back lots of memories. Very quaint and I would highly recommend. This reminded me of the friendly neighborhood place where everyone goes for great food and socialization. The prices were... More

After visiting Shenandoah Caverns, Southern Kitchen was recommended as a good spot for local good food. The restaurant has its own parking lot, as well as plenty street parking. Upon entrance, we were greeted by a friendly waitress from behind what looked like a bar. We were immediately seated among bunch of locals having lunch. The hush puppies we ordered... More

We happened upon this diner on our first trip to Mount Jackson. We make a point of stopping by for breakfast every time we're near. Excellent breakfast, delicious sausage. Prices are reasonable and wait staff are friendly and fast.

Sunday Fried Chicken dinner with two sides special is awesome. The sides aren't anything special but the fried chicken is about the best I have ever had. Crispy on the outside and juicy in the center. The pieces are large so count on taking some home with you. This is our second visit and we drove 52 miles out of... More

I had the Virginia man's breakfast (ham & eggs, home fries, toast, juice) was a good meal for the price. When they salty ham they mean it, but did enjoy and definitely tasty. Place was a little on the dark side but staff friendly. Menu was little sparse from what I normally expect on a diner menu, only handful of... More

Stopped by after a trip to the Endless Caverns with my son. We both enjoyed some good "diner" food for not too much of a price. Much better than stopping by McD's or B'King.
