South 21 Drive In
Read about 21 South before staying in the area. Love good cheese burgers and onion rings. Got both and were amazing. My husband had the fish sandwich and loved it. Only disappointed in the apple pie to go. It was prepackaged, Sara Lee. Was expecting home made pie!
Ive been going there since 1983 and its always been consistent and delicious. The staff are always friendly and still give you genuine, excellent southern hospitality. Its one of the few places left that remind me of old Charlotte back in the best days when it wasnt so big and there werent so many people here. South 21 takes me back to a simpler and happy time every time I visit.
This place is super, super, super good. I haven't had a quality drive-in burger like this since "The Hop" closed in Parker, AZ some 20 years ago. My word this is some seriously great food.
The cheeseburger was good but not great, the onion rings on the other hand were wonderful. The prices were reasonable, the staff was upbeat and friendly and there wasn't a long wait for my food. I'm glad I was able to stop by.
No way this food was cooked to order. My burger was dry and a bit burned. Way too small for the bun. The fries were cold and I could tell they had been sitting. I can't believe people give this place 4 or 5 stars. South 21 Matthews is much, much better.
