About Justin

Chef Beckett believes in quality food and tradition. Food that evokes memories from your childhood and makes new memories that you hold on tight to. He has fond memories of being in the garden with one grandmother while being mesmerized in an Italian kitchen with his other grandmother. Southern Rail’s menu is deep with tradition and full of craveable dishes. Whether it’s Gumbo or Fried Chicken, a Classic Burger or a beautiful local salad, it’s the process and time spent in the kitchen developing the flavors that stands for who we are.

For one day only our fried chicken will be available ALL DAY, starting at 10:00am for brunch until close at 10:00pm. Guests who order Southern Rails’ critically acclaimed fried chicken will receive a complimentary glass of bubbles too; a perfect refreshing pairing.

Super crispy and extra juicy, our fried chicken dish features 1/2 of a whole chicken w/ our seasoned buttermilk crust, Yukon gold mashed potatoes and collard greens for $24. We can only imagine how yummy the kitchen will smell that night. Reservations are strongly recommended.
