Neat Spot

We finally stopped here to have lunch after wanting to try it out for the last couple of years. Starting with the restaurant itself, it was very neat inside, taking you back to the 1950's with the décor and the waitresses' uniforms. They have two old cars inside, along with a very cool collection... read more

We go to Punchy's regularly for Sunday morning breakfast and I use it for a meeting spot during the week. Breakfast special is 3.99. Two eggs, choice of meat, hash browns or grits, toast or biscuit. Cheap and good. Lunch menu is plate lunch and has lots of choices although I always seem to end up with fried chicken which... More

I have been to Punchy's many times. The staff is always very friendly, the menu has a lot of options for everyone, and the food is really good. After the meal be sure to get a desert. I usually get one of their banana splits, but they have some of the best milkshakes I have had.

This is a cute 50's themed diner that is still inexplicably popular despite the decline in food quality. Most of the food we ordered was prepackaged or frozen. The menu is extensive, but this is not a restaurant that does it all well. Shortcuts being taken like serving frozen breaded squash and jarred gravy were enough to make this my... More

We went today for lunch; my wife and I had been once before. Then, I was okay with this place, but she didn't like it much. I suggested stopping there today for lunch on our way to a home show; we took my mother. The fried pickles wrre good- not greasy. Fries good, but out of a frozen bag for... More

The interior of Punchy's looks like a diner. The menu is extensive but for one thing missing… meat loaf. How many diners are there in the US that do not serve meat loaf. I had a patty melt which was bland although good. The onion rings were large and crispy. The service was very good. I am going to return... More

We eat brunch at Punchy's almost every Sunday morning and occasionally stop in for lunch or dinner. Normally, there is no waiting in line and they have a great selection of food. Most of the staff are quick and efficient. As in every restaurant, sometimes there is a bog down but that is not the normal situation.
