We have eaten I numerous diners around the country but this is a hands down winner. It is about 5 minutes East of I-95 and just North of the intersection of rte 64 and Winstead Ave. They have a plentiful menu and a different special every day. My wife never orders chicken when we are in the road, but it... More

I like to eat at different diners. This diner is the best by far! We had a 20 minute wait because of a HOG event next door, but it was worth the wait. Tiera was our server and she absolutely saved what had been a disappointing day. She was friendly, efficient and the banana split she made for my husband... More

Stopped here for late breakfast/lunch on way back from the beach. It is a couple of minutes from I-95, but well worth the little extra time. Had a burger that was just perfect - clearly not made from frozen ground beef. Friends had breakfast - eggs, sausage, grits - and they raved about how good it was. Apparently the grits... More

You have to get the Grilled Pimento Cheese BLT! It is delicous! PC with a fried green tomato, bacon, and lettuce on Texas Toast. Absolutely the best!

Great pork chops dinner! And even when they forgot part of the seafood dinner, they made sure I got it when I called back. Great service.

We read the reviews and decided to have dinner on our road trip. Big disappointment. Diner looks good but the food was all deep fried in old fat. Everything too salty and the fries were cold. The lemonade was sugar water with no lemon flavor. No Joke. Not sure how this does so well on tripadvisor. Would not recommend.

Great customer service and the food was FANTASTIC. I had the highway diner burger and my hubby had the Carolina burger with a side of fried green tomatoes. The sweet tea was good but really sweet...it was great, will be going back soon.

Living in the NJ/NY area, diners are part of the landscape. Not so much in the south. I delighted to find this place during a recent road trip. Great milk shakes, burgers the chicken tenders are made from real chicken, not some frozen replica. The service was great, people were friendly and the place was clean.
