Pretty good 50s Diner setting

Had been to this restaurant before, but had been a while, so decided to try it again as we coming through the area.

The milkshakes are awesome. Server was barely average, forgot every special request, waited 10 minutes after we were done eating for our check on a slow night. He was... More

Good food, fair portions, decent service. Fun atmosphere takes you back to an earlier time. Close to outlet mall shopping, highways and one of the nicest areas of the Triad.

We stopped in driving through town, we like to try new different places not food chains when we travel. The atmosphere was different like "back in the day", the food was good. It wasn't bad overall. I would try somewhere else next time....

Excellent chicken sandwich and burger, the peach cobbler was awesome. Shout out to our server Ashley . We mentioned we were on our way home from a funeral and she was extra attentive and kind. Definitely a good stop .

The food is usually good and is a place that I frequent for lunch since it is local for me. The Apple jack chicken and burgers are good. It does come with endless fries. The Monday special chicken pie is also a local favorite.

Popped in based on highway sign. This place is 0.3 miles off the exit. Great smell of broiling Angus from outside. Wonderful chicken pie and burger. Told waitress we were in a hurry and had our food and bill before we knew it. I heartily recommend. Hope I get back.

My wife and I went with my granddaughter when Blue Ribbon diner first opened. The service was slow, the sweet potato fries (their staple) were not available at this location, and the food when it got to our table was lukewarm, and really tasted like a Banquet TV dinner was warmed and put on a plate to serve to customers.

We stopped for lunch after visiting lions and tigers at a local conservation center. Friendly staff, clean diner. Most of the food is not freshly made on site. We were fine with frozen fries and preformed burgers. Two large groups had been seated just before we got there but our food came out quickly and it was tasty. Lots of... More
