This restaurant had a lot of character. It was filled with antiques and collectibles.

This place was a step back in time. The menu was great for adults as well as children. I was entertaining grandchildren and they loved the old fashioned sodas, old time candy , burgers and hot dogs.

I ate here in 2014 and vowed never to go back. Burger is substandard and the place was a bit creepy with only one young woman behind the counter who served the worst burger known to man. The place looked cute at first, but the food nixed it for me.

Stopped in just today for a mid-afternoon treat. Had a small hot fudge sundae with buttered pecan ice cream, hot fudge, nuts, whipped cream and the obligatory cherry. It was very good and just the right amount so not to spoil appetite for dinner. A bit expensive for the size, but the ice cream was creamy and had scads of... More

No- just no. There was only one person working here, once I got inside and realized what type of place this is we ordered very simply- grilled cheese, chicken fingers. The grilled cheese was some sort of fake cheese food- my 7 yr old wouldn't even eat it. The ice cream is just mayfield- nothing special there either. One person... More

This small joint has the worst food in Hayesville. It bills itself as serving a great hamburger. The burger tastesd as though it was a frozen sauteed patty. The toppings were not fresh. The owner has a lot of personality and is very pleasant. Service was excellent. There are a lot of fun things to browse through. Go for a... More

Visiting this little town off Lake Chatuge, which spans from North Caroline down into Georgia, we found this little place on our GPS when we were looking for ice cream places. We found much more! The Best Lil Corner has a great small town restaurant feel, a great burger, great ice cream and great people! And, by people, I don't... More

Never ate a meal here but the ice cream is great. A little slow in the customer service end, but very friendly. When visiting again, I will stop for ice cream.

This was the best and cleanest place I've ever been to.. They had a 100% satiation rating and had great food at reasonable prices.. Sheila's chocolate chip cookie Brownies are awesome.. Her male server Joe makes some good ones too!! A must see and a great place to #step back in time..

Have been a patron for years...best doggone burgers in town. Always a walk down memory lane with the massive amount of "picker stuff" on display there. The owner and staff are great folks with a joke or just "talkin". Old time place with a great selection of ice cream and burgers the old fashioned way.

This little place was the only restaurant opened on New Years day in Hayesville. It was full of antiques and we enjoyed the burgers very much. While there, we met a family that lives in the same town as we do in Florida. What a small world! They had just purchased a cabin and invited us over to see their... More
