    Po-boys & Caesar salads with a creole mustard base dressing. Specials everyday. Casual dining for the entire family. Great atmosphere. Secret dish not on the menu-Cajun Queen Salad.

    This is hands down the best sit down, home-cooked style food you will come across in Alexandria. From the BBQ Ribs to the Drunken Pot Roast, there is something on the menu for everyone!

    Delicious (and incredibly low-priced) Southern food! Shrimp and sausage with grits is my favorite, and raw bar Wednesdays can't be beat!

    Virginia burger is as good as advertised, but ask for a jar of homemade remoulade on the side too. Your fries will thank you.

    Given the "state of the economy," Southside has extended their Happy Hour to 7:30 instead of 7pm. During HH their burgers are half price (Virginia Burger is AWEsome) and wings are $.35 each. Read more

    The blackened catfish and bread basket were tasty. The meal was less enjoyable because I felt quite rushed by the wait staff. Want to get your money and get you out of there the minute you sit down.

    Go to Southside twice a week and the bartender will have your order and drink of choice memorized. Grilled cheese and fries w/ side of Mayo for me.

    Great happy hour: $3 rails, $4 wines, $2-3 drafts, 1/2 off burgers, and $2 mini pulled pork sliders, oyster po' boys, and nachos.
