Free popcorn and a good burger.

We were in the mood for a burger and stopped by. We ordered the small burgers with potato salad as a side. The burgers were served as ordered. The potato salad side was small but this was lunch not dinner so it was fine. There were also pickle spears with the burger which were quite good. Very... read more

"Now this is what a burger is supposed to taste like" according to my hard to please husband. Great food, very clean, very nice service, and an antique shop to peruse while you wait for your food is a bonus! The grill reminded me of going to the corner drug store and grill with my grandparents when I was much... More

I was on a trip from Chattanooga, TN to Clemson, SC and decided to take the scenic route through the mountains (a beautiful drive by the way...). I ended up in Hayesville, NC around lunch time and I wanted something other than the standard fast-food fare. I knew that I needed to get off the main highway to find something... More

Sheila, the owner, has the inside and outside decorated for the fall season, and she makes you feel so welcome. You feel the country warmth when you enter the building. 100% clean, which is amazing in this day anywhere! Patriotic signs outside and inside! The best burger I have ever had, topped off with a real ice cream cone, not... More

Best Lil Corner offered a nice menu and lots to look at while we waited for our meal. Lots of nostalgic memorabilia in an old time soda shop atmosphere. Good burgers & just a tiny taste of the German potato salad to tempt you into buying some. Even some "live" music to enjoy!

We recently had after-dinner dessert at the Best, a fun place full of stuff to look at while you're waiting. This review is only the ice cream products they make, not any other food. Parking is right out from, and on entering the building you see on the right wall an old-time setup with a candy counter and stools for... More

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.
