ONE of the better Meat & Threes

A little hokey, a little homey but good ole style home cooking. Remember Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches & Graham Cracker Pies? Then you'll enjoy Diehls.

Went here many times as a child with my grandparents who lived in Cross Lanes. Baked steak dinner was great then. Now I'm 27 and came back..it has never been better. Service is good, food is excellent, and good price.

Excellent food & service. Customers were as friendly as workers. Very good atmosphere. Decorations of the fifties and sixties generated a lot of conversation. Will visit restaurant again.

Found this spot after others in the area said I must try it. It's a little out of the way and hard to find, but it was well worth the drive. The service was outstanding from our waiter. Great job and didn't miss a beat. Always checking to see if we needed anything. And the food was excellent. A home... More

The food and the service here is great . The walls are lined with memorabilia from the 50s, 60s and NASCAR. Atmosphere was very friendly and relaxing.

Tried this based on some good reviews. It is like home cooking. I had the roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy sandwich. Just like my mom's. Worth trying if you want good, hearty comfort food. Service was excellent too. Local restaurants are more fun than chains. Be adventurous.

Every time we eat at this home-style cookin restaurant we're not disappointed. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. The decor is rather unusual with various themed memorabilia on walls and an engine mounted to a table makes for great conversation. The food is served hot with huge portions, and is always delicious.

We recommended this place by an antique dealer in KY on our way to Roanoke, VA. It's off the beaten path, but definitely worth getting off the highway. Everything is made from scratch, and it was probably the best thing I've eaten in a long time. The portions are generous, the prices are fair, and the staff is friendly. Next... More

Diehl's is a great local restaurant with friendly service and tasty home cooked food. I've been going to Diehl's since I was a kid and I'm 41 years old now. Be sure to go on Friday or Sunday since that is usually when they have baked steak. It is great.
