I was just driving by and decided to do something different for dinner. I'm glad I did. Wendy greeted everyone as they came in and the owner was very active in attending to the customers and making sure that everything was just right. I had the clam chowder, fried mushrooms and a massive pork steak dinner that was cooked just right. Portions are beyond generous and with the appetizer, dinner and a drink, I got out for a well-spent $20. Well worth the random stop.

We met 3 other couples at the South Main Diner in a Very Small town in Caseyville, IL. At first we weren't sure about this diner as the building is very old. However on the inside we were pleasantly surprised, the interior was very clean with ample choice as to were to sit. A very diverse menu with fair prices. The food was very good. If you like good home cooking, this is the place to visit.

Since South Main changed owners, it has quickly become *the place* for us to meet our family and friends for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have probably the best fried chicken and home fries we've ever eaten and nightly, all-you-can-eat specials that are always changing and posted on facebook. For me, the best thing is they use fresh potatoes to make homefries or mashed potatoes...I have a sulfite allergy and frozen and boxed potatoes cause hives.

Fell on this spot by accident when another destination was closed. All the staff is freindly and joking amongst themselves and with the customers. Make you feel very welcome. The menu makes you wonder what you;re in for, but when the food shows up you know you've found a gem. Very good selection and the staff check in on you to really make sure you're doing okay, not just to fill a square. Hardest part is to get the bill, they don't seem anxious to push you out the door. Great little spot for quality food. Very good breakfast.

We had Prime Rib, it was delicious, came with choice of potato, vegetable, and soup or salad -$10.99. It was tender and at least an inch thick. Loved it.
