The Iconic Arkansas Restaurant From Yesteryear That’s The Last Of Its Kind

You may know the Old South in Russellville for its quaint charm, great food, and throwback feel, but did you know that there used to be more locations of the Old South? That’s right, what we think of today as a little local mom and pop diner was once part of a franchise with locations as far away as South Carolina. Other than the Russellville location, the last location to stay open was in South Carolina, which closed in 2005. Though the Russellville Old South closed briefly in 2013, it is open for business once again, serving delicious food in a setting that will remind you of every diner you’ve ever loved.

You can find the Old South at 1330 East Main Street in Russellville. Directions are here.
