Food That Tastes Like Home

At Big South Kitchen, we believe that we’re never too busy to eat together. After all, life happens around the dinner table. It’s where we connect with one another, where we laugh a little longer and tell the stories that never seem to get old.

Of course, at the center of it all is great food, bringing us together.

This simple and time-honored idea is what Big South Kitchen is all about. Our passion for big, bold flavors is unrivaled, and our style of culinary excellence is unmistakably Southern. Our signature items include Southern staples like pulled pork BBQ and baby back ribs, baked beans, mac and cheese, and pecan pie. These recipes have been passed down through the generations, and they do more than delight our taste buds and satisfy our cravings – they remind us of our favorite family traditions and invite us to start a few of our own.

So go ahead – call up some family and friends, gather round the dinner table (or the tailgate) and dig into our enticing entrees, delicious sides and sweet treats. It’s all good, and it’s all made with love by your friends at Big South Kitchen.

A Vision Becomes a Reality

Big South Kitchen is a part of Big South Restaurant Group, a group of independent and chain restaurants with locations throughout the Southeastern United States. Headquartered in Arden, NC, Big South Restaurant Group was founded by restauranteur Jeff Rigsby whose success in the restaurant industry spans more than 40 years.

With over 100 restaurants in the Southeast under this belt, Jeff knows a thing or two about delicious Southern-style fare. His vision for Big South Kitchen was simple: create an eatery where bold flavors and traditional Southern cooking is combined with the convenience of curbside pick-up and delivery.
