Well this is sorta like the old diners we dropped into when in high school. The food is great, everyone is talking and eating. All the locals eat here, which is great--nothing in this area. They always run specials during week for lunch. Give it a try, the owner will make you feel right at home!

Plucked a Groupon off the web and stopped in this diner after passing by it hundreds of times. What a treat! Great diner food, great friendly staff and the place sparkled it was so clean. Only 10 minutes from my home so will be trying out other things on this menu in the coming months.

Regardless of what you are craving - you will always find something good on the menu. Our family eats here often - they have good breakfasts and yummy dinners. The ranch dressing is made in-house and is just great. We feel their version of the Cuban sandwich is one of the best around. Always something good - friendly staff -... More

Great local diner and lots of charm. Food above average. Great fried okra, fried mac'n'cheese bites and french toast. Fun place if you want to avoid the chain restaurants!

Not for the health minded foodie or vegan, for sure but good food for breakfast. Mostly everything else is fried. Nice, fun place to watch and be with the locals. Breakfast all day is a big plus. Closed on Sunday is a minus.

We stopped in last Monday and they were very busy. Chili cheeseburger was very good as was the service. Girl working there, Angie, was sweet and funny. Great lunch!

I had never heard of this place but had passed by it many times. My bf and I decided to go because one of his co-workers told him about it. We used a Groupon and it covered most of the bill, but that's mostly because we always order extra things. The staff was very friendly, our waitress was Megan and... More

Didn't look like much from outside. Very local. Burgers, sandwiches, hotdogs, but also southern sides. But food was good, esp the Ragin Cajun chicken sandwich. Great bacon! Hubby's BBQ was average with decent coleslaw. Clean with very pleasant waitresses. Would stop again.

The whole family loved the food. Best fries in both North and South Carolina. Service was fast and friendly. Building doesn't look so hot from the outside but man this place is a winner!

I had a Groupon. Friday special was fried flounder, fries, slaw and hush puppies. For six bucks, great deal. Empty when we came in for a late lunch, then they filled up. Will go back to try the Cuban sandwich. Good waitress.
