“Have frequented 38 South numerous times since its opening and I can definitely say it is an awesome place for food and drink.Can’t go past the Eggs Benny with bacon for breakie with a coffee or two.In the afternoon/evening their burgers and tapas are sensational. Their southern fried crispy chicken burger rocks. Add a beer or wine to that and it makes for a great meal.The staff are very friendly and the service is top notch.
