The burger was cooked to where it was a little crispy on the outside. Just the way I love it. The fries were hot and fresh. The Fifties motif was interesting. Overall very good.

Ok it is just a fast food place serving burgers and fries and hot dogs and soda. It has a drive thru window so be careful in the parking lot.

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!

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.
