I'm from Chattanooga and Athens is about an hour from here but I'm in the area fairly often. I like this place. I've had everything from the rib eye steak that I thought was good and a good value to the spaghetti with meat sauce, pizza and salad bar to their sandwiches. Just noticed a bad review of the restaurant here on the right...says he hasn't eaten here in over a year but hears bad things about the restaurant and the local TEA party eats here...sounds more like a political problem than anything about the food! Just saw another bad review under the other one waited over half an hour for a bad cheeseburger. I can honestly say I've never had any of these problems. I think the atmosphere is fine...old jukebox and pictures from the 50 & 60s it's a fun "diner".
