Delicious Reubens

Appropriately named, on the south side of Goshen is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with delicious Reuben sandwiches. Actually all of their sandwiches are very good. I suggest you get the curly fried potato. And leave room for a piece of pie. My last visit a few weeks ago I had some pecan pie... read more

We have been going to South Side since I was a kid and I still love it! The food is great and so is the atmosphere. I always get a Green River and curly fries.

So, this "dive" was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Definitely a dive. We were passing through and thought we'd stop in for a bite to eat. I ordered the Philly cheese steak basket, which comes with homemade slaw and fries. I ordered this because I was in the mood for slaw. Our food came out and the waitress, who... More

Love their hometown feeling and home cooked meals. Their black bottom cupcake is to die for. I would recommend this place to everyone.

I no longer live in Indiana, but I do recommend going to a classic like South Side Soda Shop. I used to go when I was younger, and it is just an overall great experience in a place like Goshen. I say get some ice cream, a burger, and a piece of pie and walk out of there happy. The... More

We arrived late in the day for a slice of pie. Was initially intrigued by the exterior of the diner, but really enjoyed the inside. If you didn't know better, you'd think you had gone back in time about 60+ years. We got the two slices of excellent pie. As we ate, we studied the walls and decorations. Good fun.

The service is always good with cheery efficient staff. Love the food with some old favorites and some new trendier offerings. Nothing fancy but clean and always a good meal.

Egg salad Sandwiches as good. Atmosphere is a 50's style Diner. Not my first choice but a reasonably priced place to grab a bite to eat.
