Lunch visit for the famous porkchop sandwich.

This place was around when Andy Griffith was growing up there. Our foursome stopped in for lunch and it was packed with people picking up orders, but we didn't have to wait long for a table. We all tried the sandwich. I tried it with all the toppings recommended, chili, slaw, mustard, etc.... I... read more

Right next to Floyd's Barber Shop on Man Street. How about a haircut before or after a great pork chop sandwich at the Snappy Lunch. Andy Griffiths used to eat there when he lived there...including the restaurant as part of his Mayberry shops on TV. Andy always ordered a hot dog...his favorite! Try both meals!

This was on a list of top 20 things to do, so we gave it a try and LOVED it. $1 hot dogs. They are famous for the pork chop sandwich (we didn't try one) but almost every person who came to the counter ordered one. Not a ton of seating and it has a old feel, and the history... More

While I didn't grow up in the "simple times" that Mayberry is all about, you get a good sense of that feeling while eating at Snappy Lunch. The simplified menu does not disappoint. The sandwiches are delicious and the most reasonable prices you can imagine. Friendly staff and quick service, would certainly recommend to anyone!

I'd heard you gotta stop by Snappy Lunch....we did. Wow, what a disappointment! I loved the building and the service was ok. The server stopped by the table way too many times. However, I went for the food. The pork had too much breading and was really dry. It also had no flavor at all, hey guys, just add a... More

We had to stop here, so we left early, and we did not have the line that we were warned about, however, about a couple of hours later, it was wrapped up the block!! Food was simple and very good--step back in time!
