“Lunch”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

Today my husband and I went to Old South, while it's still dated it did seem a little cleaner then it did our last visit. The server was friendly and prompt, and for the first time in a long time the food was well prepared. Not perfect but much better then the previous visits. The new owners seem to be making sure the kitchen is on point. We will go back again soon. Hopefully they will update the menu and decor a tad. ;) still over all a pretty great lunch special and so much for only 6.99!

“Landmark going downhill.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This landmark restaurant is unfortunately in a downhill slide. The restaurant is never truly clean, the wait staff (with a couple of exceptions) and cooks are constantly turning over so there is no consistency. We used to go every weekend for breakfast but after the last visit vowed "never again."

“ROACHES ”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Bold roaches! One crawled onto the table & another crawled up my mother's back. DISGUSTING.
We are filing a report with the health department! Never again!

“Middle of The Road ~ But Better Than it Was”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Very long wait for food and my wife and I were one of only 3 other couples in the place. The first time I ate there back in 2010 it was laughable how poor the food was. This time was a bit better. Still serving the same frozen chicken patties, fries, breaded shrimp and delivery truck steaks as before, but it seems like they have a better cook now and they have definitely cleaned the place up and given it some new decor. ~ Not "horrible", but a couple can get a better meal for 20 bucks at Dixie Cafe. (Yes their stuff if frozen and Middle of the road too) ~ Chris
