Elvis Recommendation
Local residents say Elvis stopped here several times for some
Good Ol' Southern Cooking

Not a person who writes reviews but I took my grandbabies (2 and 1 year olds) for breakfast this morning and the staff was so amazing the waitress knew to dilute the babies juice they brought coloring pages for the two year old and made the pancakes in the shape of Mickey Mouse for them they were all so polite kind and actually showed what guest service is supposed to b!

The Old South is our favorite Russellville Restaurant! The food is delicious, and the staff is always so friendly. They have become like family to us. I highly recommend this family friendly diner! You won't be disappointed! This food is actually home made, no frozen and reheated stuff here!

A local turned me on to this gem! The architecture alone would've been enough to make me love this place but the owners & staff truly have the "old school" hospitality & ambience along with serving Great American Comfort Food! I enjoyed the Fried Green Tomatoes, Chicken Fried Steak & Possum Pie! I loved listening to the oldies & seeing all the memorabilia as well. This is a landmark you shouldn't pass up visiting!

Great service, good food at a good price. Love the 60s music. Dont know if he was mgr or owner but he was always around to make sure everything was going smoothly. Plenty of hustling servers getting orders out quickly.

My most favorite place to eat. Breakfast excellent and Friday nights prime rib to die for. Love it.

This is our favorite spot for Saturday morning breakfast. I always get the omelet with hash browns. Great service and amazing food!

Morning Breakfast-- I had the Steak and Eggs today. It was surprisingly a really good steak, perfectly cooked to my requested Medium-Rare, and the eggs were good as well. It came with grits which were a very good portion. I would definitely go here again for Steak and Eggs.

Consistently Good

The food is consistently good at Old South and we like the fact that we always know exactly what we will get each time we eat here. The food reminds me of traditional diner fare. I love the chef salad with ranch. It’s nothing fancy, just a normal lettuce tomato type salad but I love it.

Great Find!

Over the last couple months we have traveled I-40 leaving FL and now returning. Each time we have found ourselves in Russellville, AR and had the privilege of dining here 3 times. Twice for dinner and today for breakfast. I can’t speak highly enough on how friendly the staff is! My omelette was prepared just the way I ordered it, and the fried chicken is cooked to order, so expect a little wait that is well worth it. I heard Elvis used to eat here and had a special fondness for the Old South salad dressing, which they still carry on the menu. You need to like mayo, I thought it was good. Hard to find diners like this anymore!
