We found this with our GPS. It isn't right on the interstate, but well worth the worth the short drive. My kind of menu, with multiple choices that I usually don't get. The service was friendly and delightful. Not fancy, but fantastic food.

I love trying new places, especially little local diners. The burger and friend okra was good, but not anything too exciting. However, the Pineapple Upside Down cake was definitely worth the stop. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is cute. Check it out if you are in the area.

Great little local dinner!! Good & tasty homemade specials!! Friendly family place - GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO FAST FOOD off the interstate. Gave it only 4 stars because it wasn't gourmet but it was definitely Down Home Good!!

The food was pretty good and the service was great. This is definitely a smaller restaurant with only 12 tables at best. The ladies running the restaurant were very sweet and helpful. There was a variety of food options and delicious sides. Ice cream was homemade as well as the pies. Overall a pleasant experience.

My family is always looking for the little unsuspecting restaurants that are found off the beaten path. Well, Sweet Lips Diner is right off Interstate 81 in the middle of nowhere and it was a fabulous find! The food is southern comfort food and made fresh daily! The service was very fast and friendly. My family will definitely return!

We stopped for lunch one day and found the staff and food to be excellent. They have daily specials and do ask what else they offer that's not on the menu as I had some dry rub spare ribs which were neither the special or on the menu and they were delicious. My wife had a hamburger and said it... More

Traveling with friends along the interstate in Mosheim TN led us to Sweet Lips. Our friends encouraged us to look beyond the small building in a rather remote area and see for ourselves what good food is. Our party enjoyed their lunches except for one reuben sandwich which should have been noted it is served with beef. Our waitress offered... More

This is a neat little home cooking family restaurant. The food is very good and priced very fair. Service is excellent. Allison was our server who is very nice and friendly and attentive to the customer. It is very easy to find right off the interstate exit.

Seemed like "no where place" stopping off to refuel the truck, but we went down the road to see this place for lunch. Don't be discouraged by the outside of the building. Not a fancy place but clean and great food served here. My meal was served in a basket, my wife's on a Styrofoam plate. Drinks also in Styrofoam.... More
