Between us we had the fried catfish which was delicious with a light coating. Next was the fried chicken which was so moist juicy and delicious. Lastly, we had the bbq plate and the brisket and pulled pork were outstanding and didn't need sauce. The...More

If you have one meal to eat in Sacramento, have it at South. We take our out of town visitors here. We say, the chicken is so good you keep ordering it and miss the fact that EVERYTHING else on the menu is amazing.

Food and drinks was good. Great for a cute date. Do not expect too much service as this is a commonly packed restaurant. Must be ready to order before being seated.

I’ve been to South quite a few times. Their food is excellent, but their service is consistently poor. The restaurant is very popular so naturally there is a long wait for food. However, the wait times vary significantly, and the staff rarely give you an...More
