Rob and Amanda’s pro-tips:

Amanda - Instagram worthy pictures abound here with their unique décor. Snap a pic by their typewriters. They are all over the restaurant. Owner Matthew Bell said the typewriter is a big part of their identity because it speaks to the timelessness of what they want South on Main to represent.

Rob - Try the macaroni and always check to see what the specials are each day. The fried chicken day is a personal favorite.
