    I'm sure there are plenty of items that are good. I'm not sure what is all on the menu, I never use it. The German Pancakes are AWESOMENESS

    I've had excellent service with great food and crap service with crap food. Old south is a coin toss. Very inconsistent. How busy they are has little to do with it if that's what you're thinking.

    Not gonna lie - it's okay. Nice enough place and good food, but I didn't think it was the "ish" like its reputation makes it out to be. Very crowded, but service is good.

    A photo of the founder hangs upon the wall of this family owned 24hr Fort Worth landmark. His son runs it today If you respect 'Ol School cooking, avoid the chains — eat here & thank me later! ♡

    A no-nonsense local favorite that turns out top-notch flapjacks, including the house specialty, a German version served with lemons, powdered sugar and whipped butter. Read more

    The German pancakes are to die for! It's a great place for a late night bite, but it tends to stay crowded with college students.

    Ol' Southern Skillet: it's a biscuit smothered with eggs, gravy, cheese, hash browns and choice of meat. Get it with chorizo, bacon, onion and tomatoes. Greatness. Also one of the best values!

    Chicken strips were bland, chicken fried steak was decent. The coffee was much better this time. I want to love this place, but so far not sure if I'll be back soon...

    The absolute best place to stop in Fort Worth after a long night on the town and/or to recover the morning after. Great prices, huge portions. If you leave hungry you're doing it wrong.

    Service terrible. Glasses chipped, orders wrong, very slow service, chicken fried steak served with RUSTY knife. Staff uninterested in addressing concerns and tried to over charge us for extra items

    My German Pancake was lukewarm. The butter wasn't completely melted and thus didn't turn into a sauce and was wholly unsatisfying.

    Get the German pancake. Get only the German pancake. Do not get any thing on it extra.... just the original German pancake. It's worth it. Trust me.

    The hash is amazing. Doesn't look like all that much when it comes out, but it's crisp and tasty. Get the biscuits with it, they're huuuuge and pillowy and come with an ocean of gravy.
