The prices are from the 50's!

When we were given the menus, I thought it was a joke. $1.35 for a grilled cheese sandwich and $4.20 for the famous fried pork chop sandwich. This is a no-frills place but that's what adds to the charm. Truly a snappy lunch -- but very good and pleasant experience. Make this a sure stop on your... read more

We visit Snappy Lunch 2-3 times each year (for many years)... and it is still the quaint, old-school eatery it has always been. Today we lunched on a couple pork chop sandwiches, chips, and Cokes --- delicious! Don;t expect frills - there aren't any. But the atmosphere is genuine, local folks DO eat there, and the pork chop sandwiches are... More

If you are in Mt. Airy, the Snappy Lunch is a must do. It is a small diner, but they do a very good job getting folks in and out. The must eat is the famous pork chop sandwich and it did not fail. It was big, juicy, messy and very good. Andy was a regular there growing up in... More

Food is very good. Friendly service. Price is good. Served on foam plates. Drinks are small. Loved the memorabilia on the walls. Don't forget to check the hours, they close early. Serve breakfast and lunch only. The pork chop sandwich was very unique and yummy.

Had to try their famous pork chop sandwich. It was ok but can't beat the prices. Everyone was so friendly. Closes at 1:45 pm so make sure you go before that.

Andy Griffith used to eat the bologna sandwich here for a nickel. That actually was the main reason we ate here. But the food was fine, service was fast and friendly, and just sitting in the place is a blast from the past! We enjoyed it!

It is only open for breakfast and lunch, so if you plan on coming be sure to check the hours. All of the food was reasonably priced. I tried the pork chop sandwich which was really good all the way. It was not as good plain. The service was very fast and friendly. I would recommend and come back.

OH MY GOSH!!! The state sandwich "The Porkchop Sandwich" is fantastic. You can get it "all the way" which is with mustard, chili, tomato, coleslaw or any parts of it. Menu choice is not great but then most come for the porkchop sandwich. This is a nice little sandwich/ hamburger shop and is quite small although everyone was very nice.... More
