They have great food. However they don't have a lot of seating. Going through weekday is better than weekends.

Service was definitely quick and friendly. We sat down, were recommended the pork chop sandwich, and were eating one in minutes. Prices are very good. The pork chop sandwich was the most expensive thing on the menu at around $4. Burgers and sandwiches were even cheaper.

We drove through Mt Airy NC to get a feel for Mayberry USA. It was fun. The whole down town area is very charming. We had to stop in the famous Snappys grill for lunch. My lady friend had a burger and I had the famous pork chop sandwich. Very good. It's a very cool diner.

Snappy lunch is a main stay of down town. Remember going there as a kid just across from the theatre. Meals are great and the atmosphere takes you back to a more simpler time. Later you are able to walk through town and enjoy getting rid of the fun calories.

We were in NC for a wedding, and took a day trip to Mount Airy. Since I'm a huge Andy Griffith Show fan, I considered no other place for lunch except Snappy Lunch. We stood on line outside for about 20 minutes on a Saturday, and then were seated in the front part of the restaurant. We almost immediately were... More

We decided to drive to Mount Airy just to go to Snappy Lunch. What a treat awaited us!!! Everyone was very friendly but the pork loin sandwich alone was worth the drive! Needed lots of napkins but so delicious!!! Didn't need supper that night! Like going back in time when people spoke to every one they saw even if they... More

The Snappy Lunch was great! For starters, it was established in the 1920's and it doesn't seem to have changed. The ambiance alone is pretty cool. Now on to the food. It seems that the prices are another thing that has not changed in years. They are best known for the Pork Chop Sandwich. Unless you have a problem with... More

This is the place that Andy Griffith comments on in the Andy Griffith show, it is in Mt Airy, NC where he was born and raised. The Main street there is so nice to walk down and enjoy all of the memorabilia from Mayberry, NC, AKA Mt Airy, NC

I'm sure the food was good, but we didn't eat. There was long line and we waited patiently while taking in the busy Friday wagon rides, old patrol cars driving by and the ever changing display of old classic cars. Lots of activities in this quaint town!!! Ok, so the reason we didn't stay once seated was that they had... More

Had to make a short diversion to try the Snappy Lunch special - pork chop sandwich. The sandwich was ok - a little bland in spite of all the generous toppings. Wait staff were all attentive and helpful. A good experience but by itself not worth the diversion. However, as part of a visit to Mt Airy it's worth stopping... More
