You can’t book here, so we had to wait about 15 mins on a Saturday morning. It’s a cozy, old school diner, serving huge portions of tasty food at great prices. Biscuits and gravy are delicious as are the omelettes. Worth a visit.

We went to the Southern Kitchen on a Sunday morning, and were happy we did. The food was uniformly very good, including Southern specialties like chicken and waffles, chicken-fried steak, biscuits, grits and sausage gravy. The portions were large and were enjoyed by all.

I looked it up on Yelp and it says they do not take reservations. The place is quite small, so I would call them and see if it's possible to get a reservation for a large party like that.
