I ate there twice over the weekend. Great fried chicken, but the mashed potatoes are instant - what a shame! Neither time did the waitress refill our iced teas, but the large tables filled with locals were getting great service. I guess we didn't look like locals.

And I'd heard such good things about fried chicken and waffles in the south! Well, you can't get either for breakfast.
The biscuit and gravy get 4 of my 5 stars.

Arriving in Virginia we wanted to have good food. With not much around we went to Southern Kitchen and had a excellent time. The waitress was funny but also kind. We ordered the classic, peanut soup and it was great. Warm, with a peanuty taste. Later after we had finished the soup our Virginian ham, fried chicken and our shrimp basket. The Virginian ham was amazing with the perfect spice and was cooked perfectly. The fried chicken was the best since the batter was peppery and salty. The shrimp basket was normal but not my favorite. For dessert we ate blackberry pie and chocolate meringue pie. If you like chocolate, the chocolate meringue pie was heaven. Also, if you like berries the blackberry pie is amazing.Southern Kitchen was average priced but if you have the chance go to Southern Kitchen for real southern food!

It is ALL about the fried chicken. Not sure about anything else they serve, but the fired chicken is superb. Worth the stop. Whenever we go through the Shenandoah Valley we try to stop here for the FC.

It was okay but in all fairness we are vegetarians so we have a difficult time anyway. Most places like this restaurant have a vegetable plate but according to our waitress, Southern Kitchen does not. Paying separately for each vegetable would have been a bit pricey.
