Fun Place

Very busy and popular place to eat. Fun place with lots of good desserts. Old fashioned diner, which was fun.

Waitstaff very friendly. Food was good. Excited to be eating somewhere that Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives was at and featured on the show. I had one of the items featured, the Chili Philly and it was very good.

An original diner that is quaint and serves up a great burger. I love this little spot for lunch. The wait staff is friendly and they serve one of the best burgers you could want. It's a must go to spot when traveling thru Goshen or make it a destination afternoon drive.

Take a walk back in time. What a cute place the South Side Soda Shop is. The food was pretty good, but the desserts, oh my the desserts! I had the 1/2 sandwich with small spinach salad. Both were good, the salad was better. The turtle soup was also really good. Hubby had a seafood pasta dish that was supposed... More

Get in touch with your high school days at the soda shop. Great food. Wonderful service personable positive wait staff. The owners are involved on a daily basis so the commitment is obvious and sincere. Philly cheese steaks and Spinach Salad are my favs. A great meal for the $!

Thought the restaurant would have more "vintage" foods and sodas to choose from. The food we ordered from their menu, well to say the least, was just okay. The pasta had no flavor in it, and the chicken was a little on the dry side. A little disappointed and probably won't return.

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
