Today we motored down to Lexington, NC to try some Southern home cooking at a restaurant we just heard about: Southern Lunch. This place goes back several generations, and it is located at 26 South Railroad Street, on the west side of the street, across from the old train station. Not much to look at, but the street and the... More

I got a vegetable plate and drink for $6.00. Their broccoli casserole is to die for... Yum!!! Pintos, baked sweet potato and cabbage were also delicious. If you like home style cooking this is where its at! Waitress was awesome! And the restaurant was very clean.

If you are looking for a great lunch at a pretty good price, this is the place. Specials every day, and some of the best southern cooking around.

They have really good specials and their chicken casserole was very good. They really know how to pile on the food. Very busy around lunch time.

I love the selection of vegetables here. The food always comes to the table hot. They have a nice selection of country favorites. This is not a fancy place but food is good.

Four of us stopped here for breakfast on our way between SC and VA for a Saturday wedding. The restaurant was nearly full at 8:30 so we were seated in an 'overflow' area. The attention of the waitress was quick and the food service was almost quicker. The only thing we had to ask for was silverware. Among our group... More

Southern Lunch is a great place for many things, but the one thing you won;t really find here is BBQ.. they leave it up to the other places in town. But with that said it allows them to excel in the things the do best and that is plate lunches! From Daily selections to regular menu items, it is just... More

When the furniture factories were busy, the place was Busy. Cheap food at cheap prices next door to the old (defunct) train depot and now defunct factories. Food and beverages are now served on/in the fine Styrofoam with plastic utensils. It's down home cookin'. Grits and margarine, scrambled eggs and two slices of bacon with white toast is the only...

You must make the detour to stop here on your way through North Carolina! It was the perfect Sunday lunch stop. We waited outside under a tent in plastic chairs for about 10 minutes, and it was well worth the wait. We appreciate all of the previous reviewers who made sure this #1 rated restaurant got our attention. Our waitress... More
