I like their breakfast so well here that I never eat their lunch or dinner! You can get breakfast all day! And the prices are unbeatable. You are guaranteed a better a cheaper breakfast here than you would Cracker Barrel or ihop !

Always love Old South! You can never go wrong with the Club sandwich. If you have a some time enjoy your food go for the Fried Chicken. It's great and the atmosphere is just what you would expect from this towns legacy.
