Food was delicious! The buttermilk fried chicken and mashed potatoes were so tender and flavorful. Would recommend to anyone in the area looking for quality food and drinks!

Great choice on the fried chicken Jenna! I never miss an opportunity to tried fried chicken when I'm out. Thanks for taking the time to review us-spread the word about our chicken. Hope to see you back at Switch soon!

We sat outside with friends on a warm starry evening. Service was sharp, drinks strong, food fresh, and atmosphere very friendly. Loved the owner stopping by to check on us.

Went to dinner at Switch with the family when we were out visiting. Burger was excellent, cooked to temperature. Twisty fries were crispy and well prepared. The King dessert was as decadent as is sounded and delicious. Everyone at the table said they enjoyed their meal.

I dined with 7 work mates and there were many great dishes. Salads are imaginative and come in half or full size. Dragon pra and burgers are enormous. Specials are ever changing and special indeed. Happy hour specials allow food and drink specials. They have a large and creative drink menu. Lovely happy hour app specials are a hit. We had fried green tomatoes and hummus. Great to share. Good food and good value

It has been a year and a half (perhaps more) since our last visit. We found ourselves in the area and hungry, remembered the food as being very good, and decided to stop in.

The menu gave so many choices that i wanted to try--i was really hard pressed to make up my mind. Two kinds of meatloaf! Fried Green Tomatoes! Chicken nuggets in Memphis Hot Style. And my decision was.......blackened Catfish Po'Boy.

My wife ordered the bbq burger medium rare on a gluten free bun with their version of corn on the cob, Mexican Street Style.

There simply aren't words for the perfection of our food. Her burger was moist, juicy and so well put together that absolutely nothing fell out of either half of her burger. i could tell by her face while she was experiencing her first bite that this was a perfect burger. She allowed me to have the second bite and i understood instantly why she loved this sandwich. The mix of house sauce and bbq sauce was unbelievable. The beef was also a big contributor to the success of this sandwich. Such flavor! Needless to say, the one bite i had was the only bite i had.

She ate the entire burger without trying the corn on the cob. It was so covered with cheese and paprika that eating it in public would have been a real challenge. Despite being full from her big burger, she took a bite. Again, that look of joy came across her face. When i got the second bite, i understood why. Clearly, the chef here is extremely talented. The tastes and textures of this corn is extremely satisfying. If You are going to have a sandwich, this is an option well worth considering and having.

My catfish was on a very long bun. It was a very large helping of fish, perfectly fried and blackened with an excellent mix of spices. The bun was very well dressed with lettuce and tomato, and slathered with a haunting sauce. The only way to eat this enormous Po'Boy was by cutting it. No way to hold everything stuffed between the bun loaves by hand. So, i took my time and enjoyed the amazingly balanced flavors and textures.

Your difficulty will be in choosing a side. They offered wavy fries. Nothing like what i have ever had before or imagined. Extremely crisp on the outside. Perfectly meaty and cooked through in the inside. Corn on the cob or the wavy fries? Go with a friend and share both.

i am looking forward to going back quickly for the fried green tomatoes, Nashville Hot Chicken and/or the meatloaf. Might have to visit with a friend since all my other choices have flour, so can't share with my wife.

But, You can bet i will be bring home a bbq burger with side of corn on the cob for her. i'm no food fool!
