This place has a complete 1950s feel, but more importantly, it has great food. Our table ordered two Big Boppers (hamburgers), the roast, and (for me) the chicken melt with sweet potato fries. The melt was excellent, and the sweet potato fries were perfect--sweet, ideally seasoned, and crispy without being overdone. Everyone else at our table also seemed satisfied with... More

Went based on the reviews and the fact that you don't see many "happy days" type places. We obviously stuck out like tourist because we didn't know you didn't have to wait to be seated. This prompted the owner to come see us later and ask us where we were from. Very nice and enjoyable. The server was very attentive... More

Fenders is a 50's theme place that always has good food & service. The staff is always pleasant the food hot. We enjoy the place, but it is a little out of the way as there is almost nothing else open in downtown Corneilia anymore. A really nice little town, but mostly history now. Anyway try it, you won't regret... More

I'm a vegetarian and this place even works well for me! I lived on Cornelia for 13 years before ever eating at Fender's, what a mistake. It was a place I always wanted to go but just thought it would be basic diner, nothing special kind of foods - boy was I wrong!!! I really wish I could go back... More

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!!!!
