We feature traditional specialties including Dry Rubbed BBQ Ribs, Sweet and Sticky Baby Back Ribs, Crispy Southern Fried Chicken, Fried Pickles, and Mac & Cheese that you'll never forget.

My boyfriend and I go to brunch frequently and we were happy to see something different. Almost all the restaurants with brunch we have been to/want to go to are Mexican. I love Mexican food but it's nice to have variety! Southern Hospitality offers brunch with southern flair such as chicken and waffles, eggs benedict with brisket and fried green tomatoes, cheese grits, biscuits and gravy and more southern comfort foods. They also offer a variety of BBQ sauces to enjoy as well as a bottomless drink option with your entree. Our server was very nice and our food arrived quickly. The place fill sup quick so make a reservation!

We spent the day in NYC and my daughter had chosen this restaurant. We had made reservations, good idea because it was very busy at 1PM on Sunday! The service was truly awesome, hostess Ingrid did a great job of juggling the crowd waiting (too cold to stand outside so VERY crowded inside door). We had a table of five, ate pulled pork, fish tacos and brisket and everyone raved about their food! It was served very quickly and our waitress, Alex, was terrific! Highly recommend this for a BBQ meal, delicious!

So, on a random night in the city my husband and I went to southern hospitality. From the minute we walked in we were treated like family. Now we are sometimes judged by our look and are given poor service. That was not the case here. Hostess was great and our server Alex was just fantastic. Even our bussing staff was great. Food was to die for. Killer bacon mac and cheese.
Tony, your people are awesome. Will sooooo be back.

My husband works at the Empire State Building and learned about this restaurant from tourists visiting NYC from Memphis. They said, "We never thought we could get such great Memphis southern food in the Big Apple". We immediately checked out their menu online and fell in love. We took a walk over one evening after our Broadway show. We loved the decor and ambiance. I had the pulled pork and my husband had the brisket. The food was delicious and so tasty! All the meals come with 2 sides; try the baked mac-n-ch and collard greens. Try the southern beer also. You won't be disappointed.

My husband is a real Elvis fan and said this place reminds him of his visit to Memphis, TN when he visited Graceland. Inside the restaurant, there are lyrics from Elvis songs all over and it is a fun place to eat! Thank you very much! (say it with an Elvis accent)
