Pork Chop Sandwich is unique

I took a group to Snappy Lunch on Saturday, April 25, 2015. The servers did a great job as usual. I enjoyed the pork chop sandwich. Some of my group liked them and others thought there was too much breading or too over fried. Overall, it was a nice lunch.

Wife and I decided to visit Mt. Airy, NC that also is the boyhood home of Andy Griffith and venues of the story town of Mayberry from the television program. We stopped at Snappy Lunch for the infamous Pork Chop Sandwich featured on one of the episodes. The menu, other than the pork chop sandwich is lacking to say the... More

Basic sandwich menu. Recommended by hotel staff for best tenderloins and burgers. Southern style with slaw and chili. Extremely reasonably priced.

We just wanted to eat there for the Griffith connection. And we needed lunch. It was very inexpensive, nothing was over $3. Basically sandwich, chips, and soda. No one in our group got the pork chop sandwich. Service was good and very friendly. It fit the bill.

My wife and I are in North Carolina visiting our grandson and his girlfriend. They had set up a surprise meeting with her grandparents for the first time at Snappy's. Because the whole day was a surprise we did not know much about the area other than we found out quickly this was the home base for Mayberry and Sheriff... More

My dad has told me about this place my entire life so I wanted to try it for myself. He has raved about the pork chop sandwich and I was sure I would live it because pork chops are pretty much amazing! But I have to say I was a little disappointed. The waitress was great, the atmosphere was what... More

I was so excited to finally visit and try Snappy's for lunch, but was a little disappointed. 3 of the 7 of us ordered the famous pork chop sandwich sans chili and slaw -- just lettuce, tomato and mayo. While the pork was good, we were not a fan of the breading that it was fried in. 1 ordered the... More

They have a very limited lunch menu, but that doesn't matter--you HAVE to have their award winning pork chop sandwich--have it prepared all the way including slaw--I'll guarantee you've never had anything like it. It's been awarded the State Sandwich by the North Carolina State Magazine. Don't worry--there's no bones in it. Fast friendly service. I think they close by... More
