Wow! I really like the breakfast. Out riding and stumbled in on Clarence's. If you are in the area and your grandmother made you biscuits and gravy. Go here.

The food at Clarence's is very good. They have a large menu of selections and they serve breakfast all day. We stopped at lunch time on a Sunday and I had the BBQ Pork sandwich with crinkle fries and my boyfriend had the meat lovers omelet with biscuits and gravy. These were all delicious and the sweet tea is excellent.... More

If, you want a great southern breakfast at an outstanding price, then Clarence's is the place for you. Breakfast all day and you will not go away hungry! The service is great and seating is never a problem.

If you want some excellent true southern cuisine, come here to Clarence's! There were 4 of us and we all liked our meals! The biscuits & gravy are classic tasting and all other dishes are quite good as well! This is real American food from the south! ENJOY!!

This place has great food, they have had a turnover with staff and from time to time you have to wait a little bit but by far best food in town

Just out for a day trip when we found Clarence's Diner. My husband and I waited over 45 minutes after ordering and never got our food. I ask the waitress to check on the order and she brushed us off. After waiting a while longer my husband ask her and she blamed us for ordering late after going to the... More

I prefer their famous biscuits & gravy but they have so many great options, like roast beef sandwiches, homemade pies,cakes, & hand dipped milkshakes, burgers, and hamburger steaks. I highly recommend eating at Clarence's & you will probably be bringing home a doggie bag!

When I pulled up out front, I didn't know if I was at a place to have lunch or get my oil changed. After ordering a burger and pouring the grease off the plate, I wish I had just gotten an oil change. I think there is some kind of plumbing problem, cause the bathrooms are next to where I... More

My wife and I went to Clarence's Drive-In this Sunday for breakfast. We arrived at 10:00 am to beat the rush. This is a very popular restaurant with a tremendous Sunday business. If you arrive after noon be prepared for a long wait. We seated ourselves and were served good hot coffee with real half and half. Both Charlotte and... More

If I could only at one place for the rest of my life it would be Clarence's. You cannot find a better burger than their Deluxe. And their biscuits and gravy are amazing. You have to try their desserts too. Either a banana split it hot fudge cake.
