G's Southern Kitchen Is Shakin' Up Your Soul Food Favorites

Good Bite

Some foods are controversial and some foods are fried chicken. A culinary masterpiece of unanimous adoration that quite frankly always hits the spot. Now the fried chicken at G’s Southern Kitchen, well it hits all the spots. Crispy, crunchy, moist, spiced, sweet, salty, dare I go on? 

Chef Gordon Gregory, known lovingly as Chef G, is to thank for your new favorite soul food spot. Once the pit master for Nancy’s Barbeque, Chef G struck out on his own five years ago and has been dishing out hit after hit since. His signature Fried Kitchen Wings taste like he looked up all the synonyms for delicious in the dictionary and mixed it into the batter. They have the crackly exterior of a chicken tender which leads to a perfectly juicy inside of tender, seasoned meat courtesy of their 24hour marinade. The wings are then smothered in a syrupy sauce that hits your mouth in a perfect bite of sweet and savory; sort of like chicken and waffles minus the waffle. Their most popular item, these wings get a special deal on Wild Wing Wednesday from 12:00pm-5:00pm at fifty cents a piece.

Chef G is serving up all the soul food classics from candied yams to peach cobbler, but it’s his more creative menu items that keep customers coming back for more. Most noteably, he’s successfully married the eggroll with the American South and given us The Original. A familiar flaky Chinese-style wrapper gets filled with sauteed collard greens, yellow rice and smoked turkey for a southern style twist. It’s smokey, fresh and filling without being too heavy thanks to the collards. The best-selling eggroll also comes Nawlins’ style, a play on jambalaya stuffed with sausage, green pepper and yellow rice.

Situated on the rolling hills of Bobby Jones Golf Course, diners can grab their food to go, or eat on any of the outside tables looking over the green. As business has been picking up, thanks to the uptick in support from the surrounding communities during quarantine, Chef G is doing his best to ramp up production. A quiet guy who prefers the comfort of the kitchen, music to his ears is, “a silent room full of fork sounds hitting plates.” 

The food presentation and technique showcases Chef G’s formal culinary training, with an attention to detail and going the extra mile like ensuring each ooey-gooey mac and cheese bite is made to order. The next time you’re looking for some old fashioned home cooking, stop by G’s Southern Kitchen where as his wife described it, “every bite feels like a hug.”
