Best Li'l Diner in Murphy

The Waffle King in Murphy is our home away from home. It's great to have a midmorning and late night hang out with friendly staff and a hometown atmosphere. They know how to cook my eggs and the coffee is always fresh!

Went this past Sunday and ordered their special with eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and a waffle. They do a terrific job and their service is always prompt and courteous. If you need a filling breakfast or brunch, this is the place to go.

Excellent service and food. It has become one of our go to places in Murphy, NC for breakfast. It was crowded on a Sunday morning, but only a few minutes wait and it was well worth it! Waitress doted on us and the good food was as described - delicious and plentiful and served in quick time. We will return!

My hashbrowns didnt come with cheese like I asked; the waffle was tasty; the coffee was not that great- my keurig makes way better coffee. the staff was nice. I wasnt impressed with the cheese grits- a slice of cheese on top of the grits; not stirred at all.

Seems like it was reborn from a Waffle House or similar. That being said - we received and got a reasonably priced breakfast - arriving @ 9am on a Sunday morning. Similar to a Waffle House - fast table turn (not a bad thing - especially if people are waiting). Two breakfasts, two beverages - with Tip - $19. Service... More

To be sure, you're reading this because it's late and there are few open restaurants. You can't decide between here or Waffle House. Waffle House is better. Please, trust me.
