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.

Went on a Saturday night about 7:30 pm. Not a clean table or booth in the entire restaurant. Had to sit at dirty table and wait for waiter to clean it off. Took 45 minutes to order and receive burger, fries. The soft drink came fast. It appeared that waiter/waitress also fix all ice cream and milkshakes as well as... More

Walked over to the Highway Diner while staying at the Country Inn and Suites. Our waitress Lovie made the meal even better with her happy smiling attitude. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and delicious. My husband forgot his glasses and one of the other ladies came running after us to return them to him. We can't wait to... More

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.
