good food if you stay with the homestyle cooking. when you order something a little higher end the cooks are not quiet up to the task.

About a year ago, my aunt was dying from cancer. She had quit eating. I asked her if there was anything she could eat and she said she loved the food from Clyde's. I went and got her a plate and some of their peach cobbler. She are every bite! Every time I went to visit, I would go get... More

Clyde's is a local (Waynesville, NC) family type restaurant with many choices for burgers, sandwiches, soups and meals. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prices are reasonable. All the burgers and sandwiches we have tried have been good. A few times we have tried the full meals and haven't cared for them that much. It's homestyle/country cooking, but our opinion... More

Great home-cooking. Open-faced roast beef sandwich is my go-to, filling lunch. Excellent, huge cheese-steak sub is also always great. Very good sides too, especially fried green tomatoes and okra. Breakfasts are not a great value, but I've heard other people liked them. I've never had room for dessert, but the cakes and pies look really good on the counter. Very... More

If you want to go to where all the locals go for good reasonably priced food, you'll want to try Clyde's. No...it's not located in Clyde. It's in Waynesville right across from Walmart. I've had their chef salad numerous times and it's enough for four people!!! Bring home for your lunch the next day. Diner style so don't look here... More

Visiting the Waynesville, NC area and this place was recommended to us. Nothing fancy but what great food! Very fast service for dinner and prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

My husband, adult son and I stopped here based on the the great reviews and, quite frankly, that the parking lot was busy in the mid afternoon. Wrong! The meals were less than ordinary -- with processed, greasy and cheap ingredients. The only part of the meal that any of us enjoyed was the salad, which we all agreed was... More

We went to Clyde's our first night back in Waynesville and enjoyed the atmosphere and not feeling like a tourist. The food was good and the service very friendly.

It's a tradition to hit Clyde's after hitting the orchard. We always look forward to sitting down, having a chance to relax, have a good meal, good service, fair prices, friendly folks, and just enjoy the moment. They don't disappoint.

This place is ALWAYS packed, so we knew it had to be good, and they didn't disappoint! The fried chicken was really good. Very moist and full of flavor. Also the Mac and cheese and fried green tomatoes were really good as well. It's a tiny place, and they're always packed, but it's worth the wait. We'll definitely be back.... More
