Great little spot downtown

Went for breakfast and it was great. Nice waitress, standard fare done down-to-earth style. Not fancy, just a come-as-you-are place. Community round table in the back offers a chance to chat with the locals who seem to be friendly and fun. Neat experience with good breakfasts or lunches only.

Ate lunch here today for the first time and it was great ! Had the chili - cheese burger and fries and it couldn't have been better. If you are looking for homemade chili and fresh not frozen burger then you need to give Carolina Lunch a try. I feel you will be well satisfied.

Nothing fancy, just breakfast done right. Great country ham, quick courteous service and great value. They only take cash and checks

Simple. Great small town country breakfast. No reason to go anywhere else. Fantastic country ham!! Try sitting at the counter for the official feel.

The prices are definitely great. You can pay a few bucks for biscuits and gravy. The women behind the counter are dinosaurs with attitudes so it makes for an entertaining atmosphere. It's only really early, but is actually closed for lunch. If you go, you better be careful where you sit. The retired locals have their "spots" and they'll grumble... More

This is the place where the locals go for breakfast, and one look at their worn but large menu will explain why. Two kinds of ham, grits, biscuits that melt in your mouth and eggs any way you want them. There is other standard breakfast fare as well. Service is quick and friendly.

Despite the name, Carolina Lunch is only open for breakfast. We were staying in a local hotel. After checking out the "breakfast" at the hotel and not being very impressed, I pulled out my phone and started looking for somewhere else for a GOOD breakfast. I found this place and decided to check it out. I was not really sure... More
