Snappy Lunch lives up to its reputation

My friend and I went on a day trip to Mt. Airy especially to enjoy the pork chop sandwich at Snappy Lunch. We were not disappointed. The sandwich was wonderful. Also understand that the fried bologna is also good.

We've been a visitor to Mt Airy and surrounds many times in the last few decades but we never managed to make it to the diner. I guess we should have waited for lunch to have the pork chop sandwich but alas breakfast was our goal. Looking forward to a great down home breakfast? Any diner could do better and... More

Snappy's Lunch is almost as famous as Mount Airy is. It's one of our traditions to eat there when we are in the area. All the food we have gotten is fast and tasty except for the hot dogs. I would not recommend the hot dogs at all. The pork chop sandwich is all time favorite and so is the... More

We went here because of the review in Our State magazine. Its a local luncheonette with no frills and limited menu. It is worth the stop for the "Famous Port Chop" sandwich. Do yourself a favor and try it. It is delicious. Its not a 5 star restaurant. It is a local luncheonette and it is what it is. So... More

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
