New Market Virginia’s Southern Kitchen

If you’re a history buff touring New Market, Virginia’s Museum of the Civil War or Battlefield State Historic Park, then you’ll most likely work up an appetite with all of that Civil War history indulgence. What better way is there to fill your growling stomach than with some hearty southern food?

Southern Kitchen is New Market’s very own classic, southern eatery. Established in 1955, it has a long tradition of comfort food with everything from fried chicken to peanut soup, all served with 1950s flair. Feast on a country ham as the jukebox plays behind you. Chow down on a homemade meringue pie with its perfect creamy sweetness. Sip some vegetable or peanut soup on a chilly, fall day, or bite into the hot, open-faced roast beef sandwich. (Is your mouth watering yet? Ours certainly is.)

But don’t take just our word for it. Check out these Yelp reviews as well:

“I had the fried chicken, which was beyond delicious with a crispy golden skin and juicy meat. The chicken-fried steak, smothered in white gravy, that my son ordered was even better. Awesome mashed taters and tasty beets and green beans. The waitress convinced us to have some pie with our coffee (chocolate for me, lemon for my son).”

“Excellent food! Friendly service. Some of the best biscuits and gravy I have ever had.”

“Hush puppies, Peanut Soup, Fried Chicken… and finish it all off with a slice of coconut cream pie…”
