The fish and onion rings are a must. The tarter sauce is perfect. Never had anything that wasn't good. The service is always great. Rarely ever has my order not been right. This is the best South 21 by far.

Growing up we'd go to the South 21 drive in on Independence Blvd across from the original Charlotte Coliseum. The location on Tryon is newer than that one and a little hard to get to right now due to the blue line extension construction. Also you have to walk in as there's no drive in. But the onion rings and sweet tea with the small crushed ice is as good as ever. And you're treated to fine southern service.

Love this place, owners are extremely friendly and nice. Great customer service, which I appreciate the most in any place I go. Food is delicious. Fried or grilled chicken, onion rings, fish and tartar sauce, chef salad are exceptional. Don't forget to try their milkshakes and pies with vanilla ice cream. Food is always prepared fresh for each order. No soggy fries, my friends. This location has the BEST onion rings.

If you're looking for a classic diner experience, no trip in the area would be complete without a stop here. The Super Boy will satisfy the urge for a burger and the onion rings are some of the best I have ever eaten, even if an order only gets you 6 rings. Wash it all down with a chocolate shake.
