We were hiking nearby and asked someone on the trail for a local restaurant with country cooking. We hit the jack pot. Great food with friendly service. Can't wait to go back!

We went there for breakfast. The locals told us where to sit to stay warm--it worked. We were served by a pleasant waitress and the food was there quickly and it was good. Just what we wanted. It is close to the interstate exchange and we will definitely go back.

Fell upon this place while traveling through TN. They couldn't have been nicer. They went out of their way to serve us and it was well worth the stop.

The buffet food is god-awful. Everything from a can and cooked to death; instant mashed potatoes, fried chicken guaranteed to give you indigestion and/or diarrhea. Don't go near the salad bar -- stuff has been there all week, just stirred up. However, I see local people (sadly, most of them are pretty unhealthy looking) loading up their plates and scarfing...

The Monteagle Diner is where you want to go when you feel good. The food is good, and the staff is very friendly. The buffet is an excellent value. If you go not expecting gourmet cuisine, you'll be in fine shape. If you want a good meal at reasonable price, served with a smile, then this is a place for... More

Excellent breakfast! Absolutely the best western omelet I've ever had. Home fries were great as was the country ham. Very filling, good value. Accidentally stumbled upon this place while traveling down I 24. So glad we tried it. Atmosphere was just basic, biscuits were not as good as they could have been

Typical, breakfast/lunch gig, not that fancy, glad they stopped smoking in this place, it used to be constant. Food dumped out of cans and bags into fryers and steam tables, not the best, not the worst. Hamburgers are possibly the better deal. Not sure...
