“Enjoy the tradition and the onion rings”

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 the Fish-o-Burger, or the trout dinner - crisply-fried trout, tartar sauce, bun, tart coleslaw, and loads of french fries. For a splurge, try the onion rings - but be sure to bring someone to share them with. And drinks are served with that wonderful "chewy ice" instead of ice cube chunks or crescents - plus refills are free.

There's often a crowd, but there is some outdoor dining available. Just watching the traffic whiz by on Independence Blvd. is worth a front-row seat at the bar seats.

We always go for the fried trout - the Wednesday Night Specia-Sooo Good.They have great onion rings there so we substitute onion rings for the regular fries and the vinegar slaw is good also. They have daily specials. It is a popular place so it can get packed at peak hours. They do have a tented seated area on the side. The inside is decorated in a 50's decor. And a real bonus is that they have a Cruise In the first Friday of each month from April to Oct. Bring the grandkids and check out all the classic cars after those onion rings. Check out the web site for the menu. www.south21matthews.net
