We've eaten at Clyde's on numerous occasions and always had great food, especially the fried chicken. This time I had white meat and my husband dark. His thigh and drumstick were very small, not hot or crispy. My breast and wing were also quite small, dry and not hot or crispy. The salad and dressing were wonderful. Our waitress was... More

If you go to Clydes, either come with an appetite or plan on a meal for later. We had appetizer and 2 desserts with our meal and left paying $32.00. I couldn't believe it. It's small but they're fast and we've always gotten a seat and excellent service without waiting. Always a return location,

Have frequented Clyde's for many years. One of the few original family owned and operated restaurants in town.

Visited here on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Located on the southwestern side of Waynesville on the main road to Balsam across from the new Walmart plaza. You enter the parking lot from the main road, park and then exit by driving around the building, thru the parking lot and back to the main road on the other side of... More

The service was super quick. My husband opted for vegetable soup, I opted for vegetable plate. I was not impressed with either fried green tomatoes or spiced apples. Basically all I had was half the slaw and macaroni and cheese. The peach cobbler tasted like it was made with leftover rolls.

This is an old country diner that we frequent each trip to NC. I gave the atmosphere a 5 because it's perfect for what it is. The guy running the place is a character and that just adds to the experience. Breakfast is consistently fast and great. You will not find a better value & you'll def leave full.

So old, so country and so good. I had to tend to business in Waynesville this week and scheduled things so that I could have lunch at Clyde's. Last time I was there was a Monday and they were closed. I sat at the counter, alone, on a packed lunch hour and made two new friends. Great service, great atmosphere... More

Southern home-style food in a diner setting. Many deep-fried selections, but also a huge salad with surprisingly good fresh tomatoes.
