You'll feel like one of the family as you sit down to eat familiar cuisine.

It's a diner like many others. What makes this a great choice is the staff. They're warm, inviting, fun and efficient. The food isn't exceptional, but it's certainly good and reasonably priced.

My husband, daughter and I had breakfast here after spending the night on our way to Ocean Isle Beach from Pennsylvania. The food was very good, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. My daughter is 16 month old and we ordered her a single egg scrambled. They brought it out as soon as it was done. While we were... More

Great food and customer service, priced just right! I wish my stay was longer so that I could have tried more things on the menu. I only had time to eat breakfast but it was very delicious.

We found this diner on our way south and loved the way it looked. Even more, the waitress was very helpful and recommended the pork chops that were being grilled as we spoke. I noticed many people were eating them. We did and they were delicious. so were the fried green tomatoes and collard greens. There was homemade pie for... More

We stop three or four times a year on our way back and forth to Florida. Our grandchildren get a kick out of the 50's atmosphere. But most of all the food is great & well priced and the staff is very accommodating and friendly. Our place for breakfast in Rocky Mount.

Salads and soups hit the spot. Wait staff top drawer. Easy walking and driving to most motels in area. The restaurant was very clean and the prices were excellent for what we received. Will return on our next trip in a few months

We stay in the Rocky Mount area a couple of times per year on route to Myrtle Beach. Passed the Highway diner many times and even though we read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor decided to stop for breakfast. Had a waitress who seemed a bit off-kilter and with several passes by the table she seemed to be intoxicated. Got... More
