Return visit to check out their breakfast. Awesome steak biscuit, blows Hardee's steak biscuit away. Real homemade biscuit and tender meat. Hash browns were tasty and not the shredded variety. Great place to for breakfast!

Great home cooked meals. Had the pork lion which was very tender. Honey had the chili and thought it was very good. Ended it all with a coconut cake that the owners Mom made. I even requested the recipe. Only because I live in Florida I was given the secret recipe. M,m,m!!!!

Very neat old diner atmosphere and very clean. Good food. I went here when it was packed twice during the week and the Reuben was excellent. The meat and 3 looked good as well. Tasty sweet tea as well.

Three of us went here for lunch. It was quite crowded which usually is a good sign. They serve comfort food and have decor of a bygone era. The service was good. I enjoyed the sweet potato fries served with a marshmallow sauce.

We stopped in for lunch while on our way home from a visit in Athens. Found it using TripAdvisor and the GPS and what a cool place. They were very busy but we were seated and received our food fairly quick. Appeared to be a restaurant that caters to the locals which is great...if the food wasn't good they wouldn't... More

A hometown favorite, Fenders Diner leaves customers smiling and satisfied with a varied menu of diner classics like the B.L.T. and a traditional burger, as well as signature recipes like their fried chicken breast-probably the best fried chicken I've ever had in a restaurant. A Cherry Sprite to drink and a root beer float or banana split for dessert makes... More

What a great diner! Lots of fun with 50's and 60's decor and music, friendly service and management, and a totally 'no hassle' experience. Lots of local folks. Great food. I really liked my cheese steak while my wife chose a really good meat (roast pork) and two veggies. The fried mushroom appetizer was the BEST I'VE EVER EATEN! Seriously,... More

My husband got chicken livers, and I got turkey and dressing. Mine was excellent, but his chicken livers were probably the best we have ever tasted! I had a delicious cherry coke (made the old-fashioned way). I know everyone is not a fan of chicken livers, but if you are, you've got to get them at Fenders! Great server and... More

My wife and I have been to Fenders about four times, the latest being last night (4/2). My parents sent us some money for an Easter dinner for the two of us so we decided to go here. We each got one of the Thursday specials, turkey and dressing. We got in and seated just in time too. Right after... More
