“Southern Cookin' Done Right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This place is awesome!! EVERYTHING is cooked from scratch - there's lots of it - it's ALL good - and at a reasonable price. Beyond that - the place is clean - the staff friendly - and as an aside - a lot of follks in these parts eat here on a weekly basis and sometimes more than just once a week. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I thought I'd have just one favorite meal time - but ALL of them are special! Don't miss an opportunity to eat a great meal at a very reasonable price - and feel like you're amongst friends. These folks are special!!

“Best Meat & Three in Upstate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you have not tried OJ's Diner, then you have been missing out on some of the best home cooking! This is not your average meat and vegtable restaurant. OJ's serves the kind of food you thought you could only get at great grandma's house! You know, where everything taste fresh and perfectly seasoned. It makes you wonder if where they are hiding their garden because the last time you tasted food prepared like this, you had watched your PaPa pick them fresh from his own garden. Too top everything off, the price is not only affordable but honestly lower than a lot! Give it a try! Enjoy!

“There are other breakfast alternatives”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Expensive considering the lack of breakfast choice(s). Rather dry, lukewarm scrambled eggs, parched, oily country ham, only small bottled orange juice, etc. After this experience, we'll not return for their lunch offerings.

“Buffet With Many Choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I have never gotten anything that was not good at OJ'S. They have many choices. Many different vegetables & several meats to choose from. My favorite is their fried chicken.They have the choice of dark meat or white meat. This is a very clean restaurant & the staff is very friendly. They are open M-F at lunch and dinner. I wish they were open on weekends.

“Meat and Three........Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This place is a "meat and three" paradise. Real mashed potatoes with white gravy, yum, yum. Baked Tilapia....outstanding. The best banana pudding I have had since my dearly departed Grandma's back in the seventies. It is sort of like, where have you been OJ's?

On my latest trip, I ordered the before-mentioned tilapia, fried okra and brocolli casserole. This came with a drink and either banana pudding or cobbler, along with a choice of bread for $6.99. I added a side of the mashed potatoes w/gravy for a $1 more.

Open for lunch and dinner M - F. Wish they were open on weekends. We have eaten here 4 times in the past 3 weeks and it has been outstanding every time.
