My husband and I both had the famous "Myrtle Burger" which is excellent choice along with the seasoned fries. Service was prompt and great. The atmosphere is that of an old time soda fountain in a small town. A nice place to have breakfast and lunch.

Had not been here for several years but stopped by recently for breakfast on a weekday. Excellent all-American breakfast with all the fixin's you'd expect.

My husband and I joke that it is the place that they never see us. This time, the waitress came quickly, but, it took at over 1/2 hour to get our breakfast. Worse, we didn't finish it all. The gravy was bland. It looked like there were sausage bits in it but it had no flavor. The biscuits were, eh.... More

Service isn't always the fastest, so if you're in a hurry, call ahead and order. They have amazing burgers. I always get the Myrtle Burger with fries. And they have hand scooped ice-cream. The staff is some of the friendliest in oak ridge. This is an all time favorite of mine! :)

This joint has been in Oak Ridge since the early '40s. Old school soda fountain with a restored apothecary (last time anyone heard that name, please)? Anyway, went for breakfast and was well pleased. Got the Y-12 Bomb (2 each of the usual breakfast favorites) for $6.99. Good chow/ great price! In fact, the menu is nicely varied and reasonably... More

Great lunch spot for burgers, fries or onion rings. An old fashioned quaint fountain restaurant. A must try!

If memory serves, this is one of the original 'Drugstore Soda Fountains' in my hometown. The last time I ate there I felt like I was a member of the 'Happy Days' cast, all that was missing was The Fonz. Excellent homestyle meals, real milkshakes, wooden booths...hometown folks grabbing breakfast or lunch and visiting from table to table..hard to beat.

Wowzer you gotta try the Myrtle Burger. I have found the best burger in Oak Ridge Tn. The meals are fresh and tasty. The lunch crowd are regulars. Go on in order a Myrtle and be happy.
