“Yes,,Patsy Cline ate here daily.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Dont miss this total 50's experiencs..Step inside this tiny diner and find only a counter top w/about 12 bar stools to sit upon...That's it!! No restrooms either. They suggested their library, and , that was a treat to visit too.

What nostalgia here..I loved everything about it...the old advertising pics on the walls, the simplicity of the menu...great tasting mini-burgers...excellent!! and read their menu 'cause on the back of it there is a black and white photo of, none other than Patsy, sitting at the counter munching on a hot dog...Owner said she dined here daily when she lived in Winchester....Sure, there are some hi-end places to eat, but this pick suited us well..Kids will love sitting at the counter....

“Nostalgia and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is the old time counter service burger joint that you don't often find anymore. It has very limited seating on chrome/vinyl stools at a long counter. If you visit at lunch hour, you may have to wait - but it will be worth it because the mini-burgers (complete with grilled onions and a pickle) are really tasty. Many customers are locals regulars, and the cook staff are friendly and efficient.

“Great little burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

OK this is not a fancy restaurant - it is a mini burger joint similar to White Castle. But I rated it high because they deliver what they advertise. I grew up in this town and returned for a visit. The Snow White Grill is exactly like it was when I left about 50 years ago. Only the prices are different - but not bad. My husband and I had a great little snack burger with sauted onions on a soft warm bun to hold us until dinner and it was delicious, just like I had years ago. It's one of those porcelain and stainless places with only a limited number of bar stools but a walk up window with some outside tables (this place is part of a pedestrian shopping area in town with no car traffic). They deliver what you expect and more.

“Fantastic Hamburgers but not for heart patients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Very much like the old White Castles (not sure they still exist). Hamburgers are small cooked in sautéd onions and put on little buns. When you eat them, the grease will run down your arm and drip off of your elbow but, like potato chips, you can't stop eating them. Love those burgers!!!!

“Good place. Reminded me of Reabons from childhood.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Burgers were good but fries were average. Chili dog was very good, lots on it. Work crew was great.
