These guys have figured it out. Good food with variety, good service (smiles all around), decent prices, and retro decor. Had dinner, we both had the specialty burger with fried green tomatoes ( YOU NEED TO ASK FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN MED-WELL), cooked just right. Even the fries and onion rings were good. Sheena took care of us with a... More

Looking for a lunch place off of 95 ....Not a fast food type of person - hardly anywhere to go ... went off the beaten track for a good breakfast type lunch --- worth going an extra 5 minutes.

Very nice, comfortable diner. Everything you'd expect and more from a roadside eatery. Very well spoken and presentable staff and every food option was delicious. Couldn't have asked for more.

Good value for money. Typical southern menu and friendly ambiance. Well prepared food and plentiful; blueberry pie was particularly good. Crowded on a Sunday at lunchtime and service was somewhat slow.

This is a cute old-fashioned looking diner but is much bigger than it looks from outside. Great fried green tomatoes and big good sandwiches. I can't have desserts but friend said her apple pie was delicious. I think desserts are homemade; they all looked great. Waitress was so nice and friendly and made great recommendations. Wish I had a Highway... More

very good quality diner food. Despite being busy was served very quickly. Breakfast and lunch are both a good quantity and tasty selections. The decor takes you back to 1959 - go if you haven't been.

We had the pleasure of finding the Highway Diner near our hotel stop between FL and NY. What a lucky morning we had! Mom, Dad and two boys filled up for a long day of driving and couldn't have been happier. The cheese omelet was outstanding (I couldn't have made it better myself!) but the BISCUIT WAS DELIGHTFUL! So good... More

We had two meals there during our recent visit to the area. Such delicious all homemade food. Hot, fresh, service was prompt & courteous. Fried green tomatoes with just the right amount of batter. Great homemade barbeque sauce, one of us had a famous Carolina burger, one had a chicken tender basket & one had wonderful homemade fresh tomato soup.... More
