Great lunch

We eat here often for lunch. We like the burgers and Philly Cheesesteak. The banana splits are awesome!

The food was pretty good. Was a little disappointed in the chili cheese fries. Stood over a table for about 5 minutes waiting for it to be cleaned up so we could sit down. We went there because it was rated #1 on trip advisor. Not sure it deserves that title.

This diner is steps above the average diner. The waitress was super friendly and welcoming and the place really felt like we had stepped back a few decades to the old fashioned diners I went to with my grandmother. The place was clean as a whistle, the food was excellent and the service very good. What more could you ask... More

Anytime a restaurant changes up the menu on a weekly basis it's good for business!! Love that every time we go in we are able to try a new "special of the week". The owners of this place are good as gold...good honest Christian folks who earn an honest living. They offer unique takes on burgers and the prime rib... More

A bit small (sometimes have to wait for a table) but the food quality and choices are great. Servers are excellent and very quick with whatever you need. Try the double cheese burger all the way (add bourbon glaze sauce). You health with pay a penalty, but it's worth it.

This is an area attraction and is frequented by locals for it's great food and by visitors for it's decor...and great food. At lunch it is not uncommon to wait for a table as it is so popular. There is a delightful pharmacy in the building with wonderful gift items.

Absolutely love this place...it completely has the feel of an old fashioned soda fountain cafe and the food is delicious! My son loves to sit at the counter but the last time we went, we sat in a booth. He had the Orangeade, which he said was yummy. The servers are always nice and friendly, and the menu has a... More

The food is fantastic! They have specials such as Shrimp and Grits, Georgia Burger and many other specialty items. Everything I have ever eaten here has been great, wether it was a reg. menu item or a special! I love the sweet potato fries!
