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

The food is good and plentiful and the dacor is typical 50s diner. Waitress are friendly. We typically have the burgers and salads. A welcome alternative to the fast food burger joints.

Food okay. Could tell burgers are not freshly patted but frozen. Ask about the beer here and we received odd looks. Would not recommend this to anyone. Not helpful far as staff

Had been to this restaurant before, but had been a while, so decided to try it again as we coming through the area. While mostly a burger and shake type of spot, they do have some Blue Plate Specials, and other items. We tried a Salad and Angus Blue Plate Special. There were in fact pretty good. Service was also... 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.
