If you're traveling on I-81, Southern Kitchen is worth the small detour. Every comfort food you could imagine, in a comfortable atmosphere. Hot roast beef sandwich with fries and gravy will me a 'must order' for me!

Found this restaurant on line before heading to new market Virginia. Myself, and the family enjoyed our food immensely! The staff was friendly, food tasty, and the restaurant was delightful. Would visit again most definitely if in the area.

It happens to be one of a couple of restaurants in the area so this is to the restaurant owner's advantage. The food was a little pricey, there were little options, and the food was average.

None of our dinners were especially good. Pretty disappointed. Friendly service and a fun old fashioned diner atmosphere but the food was not great
