The Alva dinner is a gem of a find in an area where restaurants are really lacking. While there is nothing fancy about this place, the food, friendly atmosphere and pricing are worth the trip from neighboring areas. The broaster chicken is fabulous. Specials every day, Desserts are home made and eye pleasing. Give them a try you will be... More

Their fried chicken is to die for. Simply good food. Casual atmosphere with a folksy, country feel. The owner is there most of the time and the quality is consistent.

The Alva Diner is a casual, comfortable place where you are treated like family. The food is incredible - my favorite meal there is breakfast. Fantastic omelets and grits. I had the bacon & cheese omelet, and it was loaded with bacon - so good. It's important to know that they take cash only - no credit or debit cards!

The Country Diner has delicious broasted chicken for a reasonable price. Check out their daily lunch specials for even greater vslue. Ambiance of the restaurant is like dining at a Grandma's country house. Service was efficient and friendly. We'll be back!

In a former gas station, this country restaurant is a walk into the 1960s. Down home cooking, great breakfasts, broasted chicken, fish fry on Fridays. Nothing too healthy here... just wonderful staff and down home meals.

We're locals to the area, and when we want a delicious, country home-cooked meal at a great price, Alva Country Diner is our go-to place every time! Fantastic food, top service, and awesome atmosphere! Just be prepared to pay with cash, as no plastic accepted. If there's a wait to be seated, which there usually is on weekends and during... More

I had breakfast at the Alva Country Diner on Sunday morning March 5. I did enjoy my country breakfast and the peppery country gravy. It is a good down home welcoming place the likes of which you only see inland away from the coasts of the state where locals eat.

Love the Alva Diner. Eat there at least three times a week. Their fried catfish is the best I've ever eaten and I was raised in the south. Go Wed or Sat for the cat fish special
