The vegetables are fresh, and seasoned perfectly.....just try the turnip greens! They are not the chopped, out-of-a-can kind, but the old-fashioned whole leaves. The pickled beets are wonderful and the mac and cheese is delicious. If you catch the fried okra or fried green tomatoes on the menu, order them. The bread is fresh baked, both the cornbread muffins and... More

My husband had the fried green tomatoes and sweet potato cobbler. Accompanying this wonderful meal were fresh homemade yeast rolls and cornbread. The rolls are made by a little old lady who comes in every day. These... More

I am sure that in it's day this was a great place for a burger and whatever, but it has lost it's mojo. I had burger and fries, both were awful, didn't even finish it.

The food was not homemade but out of a can or the freezer. A lot of money for a disapponting meat and three. Service and atmosphere were okay. The good reviews must come from people that like poor to mediocre food.

Our office group of four ordered take out from Roy's Diner yesterday and everyone was bragging about their meal. Three of us ordered from the meat and three list and one ordered the hamburger and fries. We had a great variety of meats and veggies and everything was absolutely delicious. The burger and fries looked amazing and every bite was... More

We stopped in as we were shopping in Anderson and as a first time visit we were amazed at the quality of the food. We will be back many times in the future

The thing about Roy's is how you get treated. He's been there every time I've been in to eat and always greets the patrons and asks how your meal was. You don't get service like that everywhere. The waitresses are usually friendly, though sometimes a bit slow. The lunch crowd gets packed and I'm sure they're working hard but it... More

Roy Ethridge, the owner, is always on hand and loves to walk around and talk to the patrons. Roy's has excellent Meat & 3 (don't miss the creamed corn or stewed potatoes!!).

Best meat and three in Anderson and a not to be missed experience! The food is authentic down-home cooking.
