I must say that I am not a foodie at heart. A banana will do just fine for most occasions. After eating at Southern Roots, I might change my opinion about food in general. We went for lunch on the patio - which is not-so-romantically situated in the rear of the restaurant near the parking lot. I ordered the Warm... More

This is an outstanding establishment and we never tire of dining here. Fabulous entrees, affordable sandwiches, unique side dishes. The Jazz music outside is simply wonderful and the service is warm and genuinely caring. On Friday night the owner put out fresh blankets for the patrons and lit the fireplace to make sure we were all comfortable. The restaurant even... More

Outstanding!!! Staff was friendly and made me feel at home. The roasted chicken, collards and cheese grits were the best I've ever had. I will be in the area for a week and plan to return.

I am very happy with Southern Roots Restaurant. the food is good and they good care of their customers. The noise is another thing. Wish someone could help Lisa with a solution for muffling the noise with some innovation material maybe on the ceiling. It is very nice that we have this establishment in Jamestown, NC area.

Parking is limited. Entrance is located in the back of the building and not on the street. The confit chicken was delish but the collards had large stems and my husband's Cajun catfish didn't have much seasoning, but the portion was generous. He enjoyed Coys okra very much.

Went to lunch with a friend my first time. Had their lunch special chicken pot pie with eggplant fries. Delicious. $7.99 also had a flavor tea. Yum. Will go back.

I always frequent this restaurant when visiting my daughter at High Point University. Great selection. Healthy choices - all price ranges - pizza, salad, entrees such as seafood, steaks, all with southern flair. Wine selection solid and not big markups. Go early as gets crowded and not a large establishment.

The food at Southern Roots can't be beat. Every single thing is delicious, the service is phenomenal, the ambiance is great. We've eaten here many many times and we have never been disappointed. The okra is divine, the warm pimento cheese appetizer is to die for, the quiche is wonderful, the fried green tomatoes are a MUST! My son had... More
