  • “I don't know whats up with the bad reviews, took a chance ordering and I'm glad I did. I ordered crawfish fondue, fried chicken sandwich and shrimp roll. Crafish fondue: excellent, restrained with salt and grease but had great flavor. My only complaint was that the accompanying bread was not crisp and their fondue needed it. Shrimp roll: great, shrimp seemed fresh and a good size. Aioli was more of a fresh dill yogurt dressing. Roll was a bit unwieldy but seemed homemade. Chicken sandwich was eaten in two second by boyfriend so can't comment. The greens with bacon were cooked down and had I nice bite of vinegar to cut the richness of the bacon. I've eaten in the restaurant and it's funny because delivery was better.”

  • “Had to get a refund because the menu didn't specify whether I could only order dark meat. Not cool at all that the info wasn't included, so now I have to wait to get my refund and order something else. NOT COOL.”

  • “got the pork sandwich and had two huge (golf ball size) balls of fat in them. Alittle fat is fine and pork has isnt the leanest meat but when you took them out the sandwich was not nearly as full as it should been. Just stick to mac and cheese from here.”

  • “It was horrible. It cost $14 for 3 pieces of chicken and a biscuit. This isn't on the menu also the mash potatoes are made with chives. There should be an option for plain. It's a really over priced restaurant for such low quality in food. I would not recommend this place to anyone. $42 for such a disappointment.”

  • “As a vegetarian, I was a little worried about ordering from the southern - but the salads (kale salad and the apple salad) were amazing - as were the sunchokes (I'd never had them before - delicious!). We didn't really like the mac and cheese (didn't like the smoke flavor) and the hush puppies and corn bread were super dry.”

  • “Delivery was super fast - way before my quoted time. The pulled chicken was delicious, as was the Memphis BBQ sauce, but the artichoke and crab dip was only ok. Still, some of the BBQ I've had in Chicago and the closest to where I live. I'll definitely be back for more!”

  • “really yummy - definitely would order from again. the fried chicken sandwich was really moist and so was the fried chicken dinner. the only item that wasn't the best was the biscuit and gravy - lacked flavor - maybe a bit of salt. Also the she crab soup was out of site! so flavorful i couldn't believe it. I thought for sure that everything would come warm but everything was HOT. they only took 34 - to 40 minutes to deliver!!”

  • “I received the wrong food. When I called the restaurant to inform them of the error I was told "if you want that" (the food that I ordered in the first place) we will send it out in 30 minutes. Ummmmm.... yes I want "that" which is why I ordered it!!!! "That" food/corrected order never arrived. ”

  • “Amazing. Had the chicken leg sandwich, side fries (although $5 for fries they give you enough for three people) and had the Abita root beer which was awesome! They set you up perfectly to enjoy your meal straight out of the bag. They give you Ketchup in a decent sized container but you should ask for two if you are sharing the fries with another person.”

  • “For take out, this was beautifully presented! I thought everything was amazing and refreshingly different from nearby places. Red potato salad was perfectly balanced with large slices of potato and light dressing, the mac and cheese was simply delicious, the brisket was like eating classic style ribs but even more tender, and even the fries tasted fresh off a grill rather than fried. My boyfriend and I share an account, he didn't like it as much as I did because he had a fattier piece of the brisket and is picky, but I can't wait to try other dishes. - Diana Terry”

  • “I first saw this place on Chicago's Best when they featured the smoked macaroni & cheese on an episode. After watching them cook it in the kitchen, serve then eat it, I had to try it as it looked amazing & cheesy. We ordered & it did not disappoint! Super cheesy & smoky, but not overwhelmingly so. I've ordered from here multiple times now & can vouch for their AMAZING fried green tomatoes, delicious she crab soup, great hush puppies & don't even get me started on the fantastic shrimp and grits! Everything comes well packaged (even the soup- never has shown up leaking or spilled!) and warm. Definitely a must try!”

  • “Pleasantly surprised. I was thrilled to see The Southern started delivering, but was a little hesitant, wondering if their "comfort" dishes could hold up on delivery. Well I can say absolutely yes! At least on my first order. We ordered the fried chicken and biscuit. Fantastic as always. The duck leg confit with black eye pea and collard cassoulet. Fantastic. Smoked cheddar mac & cheese. Fantastic, and suprisingly better the next day! And she-crab soup. Fantastic. After we ordered we were quoted the average hour wait time. To our surprise and astonshiment, it came in 34 minutes. Piping hot in great to-go packing, complete and correct order. Could not have had a better delivery service. And I will definitely be ordering from them again. Especially on a cold winter night, what could beat southern comfort food delivered right to your door??? ”
