This is a good burger place for families. The food is tasty and the prices are very affordable. The entire family really likes South 21. There are daily specials and the sweet iced tea is good.

This is what we all remember and seek out from our past! The burgers=excellent! Fried chicken=crunchy and moist hot dogs and fries/onion rings=fresh and not greasy! On line warm and caring manager and front line staff that are patient and pleasant to deal with! Food and staff were far above expectations!

My wife loves their Trout filet dinner. We have gotten food from the South 21 for years. First at US 74 E / Eastway Drive Charlotte NC and now Matthews NC.

This place never lets you down. The daily specials are a great value and regardless of what you order you get your moneys worth. We recommend the Super 21 burger and the fried chicken. This is one of the best values in town.

South 21, located on Independence Blvd (Highway 74) is a Matthews and Charlotte tradition. You'll think you've arrived at a classic '50s diner. If you're not watching your weight or cholesterol, this is a great place to just enjoy simple foods. The "Super Boy" hamburger dates back many years, and is featured in a weekly special. Our family has enjoyed... More
