“addicting and lovely”

Well known for its Southern style diner food, the southern kitchen offers a unique relaxed atmosphere and menu selection including Virgina country ham and Virgina Peanut soup, two local favorites. Located along route 11 in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, the Southern Kitchen reflects a small town diner charm and embraces long-standing local flavor. Founded in 1955 by Lloyd and Ruby Newland, The Southern Kitchen has remained in the family, as well as well as remained true to its original diner motif. Now operated by their son and daughter-in-law, the restaurant remains a staple of the community. In a time when fast food franchises are the norm, the Southern Kitchen remains an American classic serving wholesome, home-made food.  With a menu of original recipes that include “Lloyd’s fried chicken”, vegetable and peanut soup and an assortment of pies, the Southern Kitchen offers something for every taste!  You may find the food is what attracts visitors and locals alike, but it is the hospitality that keeps them coming back.  The next time you are in historic New Market, Virginia take time to treat yourself to some classic southern cooking at the Southern Kitchen.
