Cute and quaint little restaurant in Candler NC

Cute cozy and quaint little drive in or sit down family restaurant in Candler. Great wait staff and great food for what it is! Keep up the good work. Glad to know Candler has a family and kid friendly restaurant with good food and quick easy access. Thanks!

Went with friends for breakfast because our favorite restaurant down the road was closed for the July 4th holiday. Service was slow, food was barely warm on arrival with out of the bag home fries and the price was not friendly for what you get.

Pretty good for hot dog and burger joint. Customer service is great. Just plan on paying a little more than usual for hot dogs. They have a variety of items on their menu.

We stopped here on our way back to the Cabins of Asheville for dinner there wasn't much open around it. The place could use a remodel but the food and service were great. The bbq was outstanding and my wife loved her chicken sandwich and fried green tomatoes.

Thought we'd give this a try on a backroads trip into Asheville. I had a 1/4 pound burger that had onions, peppers, bacon and cheese on a kaiser roll and a side of fries. My husband had the 1/4 pound deep fried hot dog with chili and slaw and a side of onion rings. There was plenty on the menu.... More

All of it was good, but the hot dog and mac and cheese were fantastic. But more importantly the service was even better than the food. Our waitress treated us... More

nice place to go and enjoy. Great food and friendly people. Great prices too. Won't kill you budget. Clean, but not very big. Easy to find, right on the main road in Candler. They also have coupons you can use too.
