Have eaten here for 50 years. Best onion rings. Ever. Great fried chicken with dense crisp crust. Divine.

It's not in the best part of town. It looks like the type of place that would fry everything... even salads.
But, this food is glorious. The onion rings are crunchy, not greasy and huge. The burgers are stacked, hot, and made to order. The apple pie is yumX4.
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I've been going there since I was knee high to a grasshopper! :) And anytime I drink root beer I think & crave their onion rings!!! GREAT ONION RINGS!
I get the SAME thing all the time (if it's that good don't order anything different!)!! Which is JUMBO cheeseburger everything BUT ONIONS & fries/onion rings!! And it's brought to you by the "car hops"! It's ALWAYS been that way. Sit in your car, yack with friends & family (same car or one next to ya) and chow down on some good food & reminisce. Because it HASN'T CHANGED SINCE IT'S BEEN OPENED!!
If you're heading down 74 (Independence Blvd) you have to loop around, no where to turn anymore on the "super highway". And if I'm not mistaking it was on 'Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives"!!
I have been going to South 21 since I was a little boy and the food never fails. I’ve been to all the locations even the one they closed on South Blvd and each one I’ve gotten the same wonderful experience. If you really want that classic flare of the past with GREAT FOOD, this is the place to come!! I have tried almost everything on the menu but my favorite is the Fish O Burger! Always fills me up and the homemade tartar sauce is to die for. I usually order a large tub of it to dip my fries in and also order an extra vinegar base cole slaw as well.
Always a winner to me with plenty of other things on the menu to fill your hunger. Plus, it’s pretty cheap for a family of four or just date night to eat there.
