“Blue Ribbon is a family favorite for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My kids love Blue Ribbon. It's #1 on their list any time the question of where to eat out comes up and this usually means a 30 minute round trip drive for us. The burgers are well prepared, the fried pickles are incredible, the chicken sandwiches are super as are the deserts (peach and strawberry cobbler..Mmmmm!). They also offer a standard diner plate with a special of the day and 2 vegetables which further mixes things up. I've not ordered a single item that didn't hit the spot. They also have some of the best sweet tea I've had anywhere. The staff is friendly and attentive and great with families with small kids. Do yourself a favor and check out Blue Ribbon if you're in the area.

“Old Fashioned Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This diner is awesome! It's menu is a little lackluster but they make EXCELLENT burgers.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel like you stepped back in to the 50's. The prices are pretty good as well. The desserts are so so.

“Country cooking but in a chain setting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

This place has regular diner fare, meatloaf, burgers, and hot dogs. The food is nothing special and kind of expensive for diner food. The only thing they do well is milk shakes.
