South Restaurant @ 1010 North Gloster Street, Tupelo, MS. N’Awlin’s Nachos, Shrimp & Grits, and the All American Burger. It has been a while since my last visit and I’d been told I should drop by and taste the changes Chef Nick has made.
The wife and I had a rare Friday off and wanted a place to relax and have a nice lunch. Now, I’ve always got several great places in mind for such an occasion to choose from. Today, my choice was clear, South Restaurant! The atmosphere was very pleasant. Blues & chilaxing music playing in the background. Guitars hanging on the wall, purple chairs, craft paper table cloths, and soft lighting. An unusual combination, but South pulls it all together beautifully. For our lunch choices, I already knew what I wanted to experience before even walking in the door. We started with the N’Awlin’s Nachos which we got FREE with our Local Savings Coupon when purchasing two entrées! The nachos are topped with Crawfish, shrimp, andouille sausage, caramelized onions, & cheese sauce. A MUST try app from South!South’s SHRIMP & GRITS were amazing! Each ingredient brought its own succulent sensation to the table, but combined to make one beautiful dish to behold and devour! Made with Grit Girl grits from Oxford, sautéed shrimp, bacon, shallots, tomatoes, and white wine butter sauce. I actually began taking smaller bites to savor every moment. My better half went with the All American burger. This isn’t something they just throw together for the less adventurous among us. It’s a huge beef patty covered with white cheese, and topped with bacon, fresh lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, and come back sauce. And presented in a bun that not only looks good on the outside, but has beautiful grill marks on the inside for an added touch of specialness! I have to say, I had high expectations for our visit today and the crew at South along with Chef Nick exceeded them all…my compliments to the Chef!
