Very decent country-style food. A great place to grab a bite with family or friends. Make sure you're not in a super big hurry when you stop in.

The owner of our motel recommended Ammons for a quick bite to eat. You can choose to be served in you car curbside, or sit inside the restaurant. We choose a booth inside. The food is served on paper plates with plastic utensils. We tried a hamburger, fries and their famous hot dogs. I also chose to add one trip... More

Leave any modern form of payment at home because this place only takes cash, and they proudly display that fact on the door in bold letters. The food is traditional drive-in fare, with a soup and meager salad bar (five items, oh boy!) Service is almost too fast, since it gives the staff no time for polite service technique; on... More

This place was a real surprise. We had seen lots of cars there when going by, so we decided to give it a try. It reminded us of the old diners. The food was good and you can't beat the prices. Lots of locals eat here. Philly cheese steak sandwich was good, so were the hot dogs. Gotta try the... More

The food was simple, yet filling and tastey. The service was excellent and good home cooking. The ice cream floats were spectacular!

First time trying this place after reading several good reviews and seeing a very busy parking lot. Maybe some of the menu items are good but we wanted to try simple cheeseburgers which for a standard coffee shop/diner type place is usually a good measure of quality. Well, what a disappointment. The burger patties are 2 ounces (says so on... More

Hamburger, Hot Dog, Fries or Onion Rings it is all excellent. We most often go to the car hop section and you will be waited on fast with good service. You notice that I have not mentined Ice Cream I saved the best for last. Banana split, Milk Shake, Sundae or a cone it is all great.

We popped in here for a quick bite on the way to Maggie Valley. Did not know that this was more of a 'fast food' sit down place, but we really liked the food. It's like a higher class, better quality McDonalds - I mean that in a good way - the food is inexpensive - hamburgers, hot dogs, corn... More

This is our favorite place for fast food. I really like the pulled pork sandwich and the hot fudge cake! Nice people.
