Fried Green Tomatoes
We always enjoy dining here. Friendly considerate staff who have to be extra helpful given the Q code menu and beer selection. Food was fresh and tasty; it can be spicy and next time we will address that upfront. Portions have clearly shrunk while price has remained the same. We usually were able to take home some for leftover lunch. Not anymore.
Super disappointed that they have taken away the biscuits and you now need to buy them as an appetizer. Also, the appetizer which comes with only 2 biscuits is very expensive for biscuits that used to be free. And where is the honey? It is Tupelo Honey’s right???
I feel like this restaurant has changed too much from what it originally was. Used to be awesome but now ok at best. What a shame.
I keep trying to give Tupelo South a chance but it never quite measures up. Service was slow ( new employee though), checks were all wrong. Food was good but slow to arrive.
Loved the new bowls. Glad we could make a reservation. Friendly professional staff
The food and service were great. Some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever had.
There was no ramp so my 94 year old Grandmother. She had to climb an 8" curb with her walker to get inside. We were sat quickly and took drink orders. Drinks came quickly and food order taken. Food arrived quickly and was nice and hot. Great food, friendly staff and laid back atmosphere.
Fried green tomatoes, brussel sprouts, collards with bacon, fried chicken and biscuits...can't get more southern than that!
Authentic down south food prepared perfectly.
Great place to have fried chicken.
Our server had a wonderful, warm personality and was great with our questions. Just perfect!
Food was great but had to wait an hour for my meal. Friendlier staff would be appreciated as well
Stella is stellar! Great service, fun to talk with, good food.
Good service and food very casual. We enjoyed sitting outside.
Our food was exceptional! The service was excellent! Best pancakes EVER!!
Great service from Alyssa, awesome actually, and food.
Very disappointed in the banana pudding. Very small serving and too expensive
Went there for mother's Day brunch. The service was awesome, the food was excellent, and the dining area was roomy and bright. Planning to go back there in the future.
Service was fantastic!
Difficult to get in via OpenTable reservation system. However, when we were there, there were at least seven tables set up for service (and socially distanced) that were not occupied during the entire duration of our meal (approximately one hour). I assume that there is some type of disconnection between OpenTable's reservation system and the front maître d'. However, our food was great and would highly recommend this Asheville institution, even this non-city center location over the original downtown location if one cannot get a reservation there.
The food, atmosphere and service was excellent! I got the cast iron pork, peach salsa (which was out of this world good!) and collards. We also really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. Loved it and will be back!
Super place with modern decor and a “hip” vibe
Barman Thomas was great.
Food is Southern, everything fried but very tasty
Server was fabulous. Very attentive and responsive...and polite and friendly. We were just a little disappointed in the food quality as it's clearly not as good as the downtown location. Still grateful to be able to get a party of 10 in on a Saturday night! Just try and work on the freshness and get the food to the downtown level.
It was very loud inside the restaurant. The way it use to be decorated really helped keep the noise down. Our server was great and so was the food
Food was SO good. Top 5 meals I’ve ever had.
We had a wonderful time at this Tupelo Honey. I had reservations for a party of 6 outside and we barely had to wait. Service was wonderful and so was the food. We loved the patio as well. I would go here again for sure!!
The Mac and cheese waffles with Asheville hot chicken are incredible
Food was ok nothing special
We were quite disappointed in the menu changes.
NO FRIED OKRA?!
NO TOMATO SOUP?!
The menu looked like I had gone to the wrong restaurant.
Great food. Servers wearing masks inside. We choose to eat on the terrace. Great you can make reservations to sit outside.
Fried green tomatoes excellent. Mac and cheese had been sitting too long and had separated out. Brussel sprouts were amazing. Good table distancing. Excellent wait staff.
Mother’s Day with family!
It was very nice. The spacing was perfect for COVID . Service okay and the food delicious. Took way too long to get my husband's beer
Vacation stop for lunch while on the way to Bryson City, NC. We couldn’t get reservations for Friday evening so we stopped for lunch. Great food and the wait staff was awesome! P
Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Wonderful service!
Good food. Our first time visiting S. Asheville location. Maybe it was us, but we thought the food wasn’t as good as the downtown location.
Both my wife and I had the fried chicken with a spicy honey covering. It was very good. It was a little sweet and a little spicy. The flavor was very good and the batter used on the fried chicken was very good.
Beautiful restaurant! We had a reservation for 8, outside, but due to weather were seated inside; not a problem. Server did not refill drinks, when asked, and did not visit the table except to take a deliver the orders, basically, until time for the check.
Tupelo Honey has certainly changed. They were out of honey for sale and they have stopped serving biscuits complimentary before the meal. My chicken breast was thin and had very little meat and my wing had no meat on it. Drinks are now $3.50 each which will really boost your bill. I would highly recommend you select another restaurant for dining.
Food was good, service was excellent (Bryce). Will go back!
We enjoyed our brunch and and the menu selections. The food was,very tasty and well prepared. Qe look forward to returning to try other menu items
