Very Convenient Location

The Blue Ribbon Diner in Mebane is a "classic" dinner. Our Silver Sneakers group (about 30 folks) can be seated together toward the back of the restaurant. Jane H.

Ate here based off of the reviews on Trip Advisor. I wish we would have skipped it. Food was limited and taste was blah. I had the blue plate which is a great value but I think we could have done much better on our road trip.

We love the Blue Plate specials. Very nice portions, we never leave hungry. I love the tea. We go on Saturdays, the Angus chop Steak is a favorite. The milk shakes here are terrific. Always a different flavor every season!

Needed a place to have lunch on our trip to the outlets and decided to stop here. Parking lot was full and we thought we'd have a long wait but to our surprise they sat us right away. Very pleasant staff and quick service. Definitely a must visit if you in the area.

First thing we saw and felt was the atmosphere harking back to, I suppose, the 1950's or so. Right down to the overstuffed Naugatuck booths and Formica topped tables embossed with little boomerangs. The menu had it all for a diner, and maybe more...all cooked to order. We had a chicken sandwich and a chicken club both with a side... More

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.

We used to frequent the location in Burlington before I moved. Now it's a great in between spot to meet my mom for lunch. The applejack sauce is my favorite sauce ever! Their service is always good and the food is top notch diner style food. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant is clean and well kept. I highly... More

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
