We stopped there on the way to the airport & were set for food the rest of the day. They have BIG portions that were very tasty! Try their house dressing--their version of a honey mustard--it was delicious! All 4 of us loved our food.

I stopped at the Blue Ribbon Diner for lunch on a rainy day. The restaurant feels just like a 1950s diner - but is new and clean. The wait staff were all very friendly and filled in for each other. I was alone and sat at the counter. I ordered the chicken friend steak special -- it was amazing. Very... More

Been wanting to stop here for a while and I wasn't disappointed. My server was Alyssa and she was great. I had the cheese curds, a salad and spaghetti. All of it was quite good and the total was $15. Not a bad price for a good meal. They are on the outer fringe of a shopping center so there... More

I love to try new-to-me places, and while the Blue Ribbon isn't new in the area, it WAS new to me. Lunch with a work friend, and it was surprisingly good. The special on Wednesday was Chicken Fried Chicken Breast. I asked the server about it, it's a boneless chicken breast fried in the traditional style. I'm glad I ordered... More

My buddy and I drove from Durham to Mebane just to try this diner out. When I read the menu I remarked "how did they know what I like best?". I had the Tuesday special and chose black eyed peas and fried okra. Great southern diner fare. My buddy got the Chicken Parm with spagetti and Texas toast. He loved... More

Was a typical Diner atmosphere. The food was typical..burgers and sandwiches..spaghetti and fried appetizers. The food was great. Quick service . Prices were great for a sit down diner.
