A Fort Worth landmark, Ol' South has carried on the tradition of a 24-hour family restaurant since 1962. It serves breakfast and Southern home-style cooking any time of the day or night, always with a cup of hot coffee, served in a diner-style coffee mug. Breakfast classics include German pancakes and lemony, eggy Dutch babies, but they also offer new-school dishes like fried chicken and waffles. There are club sandwiches, entrees such as chicken-fried steak served with choice of two sides plus Texas toast, and pies and cakes for dessert.
