Their signature chicken dish was delicious and filling. I recommend trying it as it is a signature dish and hey they serve it well. Seems like mostly everyone ordered it and I'm sure for the same reason I did it was good!

I have visited South City Kitchen in Midtown, Buckhead and Vinings Food has been inconsistent with Buckhead being my preferred location. Their Green Fried Tomatoes are great and have been delicious at all three places, however their main entrees have been hit or miss.

Everyone was super friendly, from hosts to server. Food has a homemade feel and it was delicious. I had the pulled pork, which comes on top ad a savory pancake...very different, but extremely good!

Combining the energy of Atlanta with the warmth of a Southern home, the restaurant is nestled in an updated, historic bungalow on the city's famous Crescent Avenue. Dine on local Southern favorites such as shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and banana pudding while enjoying the view of our exhibition kitchen or the city skyline on one of the best patios in the city. This truly is dining the way the new South intended.
