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!

Great breakfast items, burgers, and sandwiches. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. This place is packed on weekends. Owner (Rick) and his staff are very customer-oriented and treat their customers like family. Highly recommend Waffle King!

Rick, the owner, goes the extra mile for quality food and friendly service. The omelets are whipped and filled to the brim....consistently the best I have had anywhere in my travels. If there is ever a concern about your order, it will be redone without question, and they have always been eager to fill any special requests (due to my... More

They used to be very good. Rick, the owner, was right on! Lately, over the last couple of months, the service has been really slow and it has taken longer than usual to receive my order. I hope they can bring it around, they did have really good food.

It was our first time at Waffle King as we were visiting the area. I really wish we had one in our town! I am NOT a fan of the other waffle place but after a day of tubing in Bryson City, we were super tired and didnt have dinner. I really didn't want McD's and it was 10pm so... More

When we walked in, we were promptly seated by a wonderfully friendly young lady (I didn't grab her name). She could tell we weren't from around there, so she started giving her personal favs and asking what types of things we liked so she could come up with something fantastic. Waffles were so light and airy. They tasted like there... More

Open 24 hours a day this small town diner is full of charm. They still have daily specials and pie! You can eat breakfast anytime. Prices are reasonable and the waitresses are the friendliest in town!
