Love this place, it's a Cartersville staple. Family owned and very delicious! But, you do need to check the hours before you make a trip. :)

We stopped for lunch - had to wait about 1 min to sit, counter seating only. The daughter of the owner greeted us like we were friends. Service was fast and friendly.

4 Way lunch is a dining experience that you will not find in many places. It has been mostly unchanged since it opened in the early 1900s. The menu is simple and fresh and comfortable. Loosen your belt and live a little, it's good.

If you are looking for a true food land mark, this is it. It has it all. History. Nostalgia. Locals. And good food. What more could you want. There are two musts down town if you want real Cartersville .... Four Way and Ross's Diner.
