Very glad we ate there

Great diner...great food. We met our friends there for breakfast. They live in Rocky Mount and said we had to try the diner. It is a very short distance from the Comfort Inn, where we always stay when we're in Rocky Mount. The diner was full on a Sunday morning, and the families with kids helped to... read more

It's been a while since I've been to Highway Diner. I had stopped there for breakfast one morning with my Mom and we both enjoyed our meals. The food was hot, plentiful and the service was very good. I will try to make it back there again whenever I'm on that side of town for a long period of time.... More

Depends on what you order. I like their Rueben sandwiches and milkshakes. The place is usually crowded and you may have to wait to be seated. I like the variety of food choices on the menu. I like the food. It is great when you just want to jump ina pair of jeans and go out for some casual dinning.

It's a great place to stop when you are in a hurry. The food is consistently delicious, especially breakfast, and the service is excellent! The desserts, moist and delicate, are baked fresh in the restaurant.

Everything on the menu is good. The location is convenient to Hwy 64 and I-95. The breakfast items, at anytime in the day, are great.

This restaurant has become one of my new favorites in Rocky Mount, NC. The food is amazing, it's like eating grandma's cooking. I recommend Highway Diner to anyone traveling to Rocky Mount and want a great meal without banking the bank.

Lucked into this place when we stopped for the night at nearby Candlewood suites. A truly local Diner with exceptionally friendly service and favoraful meals. The best ground sirloin steak (blanketed with onions, mushrooms and a delicious gravey} I can remember having. Too bad we were not staying in the area longer so we could try some of their other...

We saw the excellent reviews on trip advisor and decided to try some local flavor. We were glad we did. I had a veggie omelet that was smothered in cheese and loaded with veggies. Yum. My wife had chicken noodle soup, a BLT and grits. The grits were creamy good. Waitress was efficient and friendly. It is a place the... More

We got off the highway to grab a quick bite and as we were grumbling about only seeing a Cracker Barrel, this diner caught our eye. We're so glad it did!! The staff is super friendly and the food is great! We had delicious omelets with crispy hash browns and the kids had burgers and grilled cheese with homemade potato... More
