This is an example of why I love TripAdvisor so much. We would have never tried it within the great reviews. We met my husbands sister , brother in law and another couple here for lunch. We were all in the mountains but in different towns with Cleveland I the middle. The food was great. Especially the fried okra-it was... More

I had high hopes for lunch at Glenda's after having a sausage biscuit from there last year that was the best ever. The chicken fried steak was from a frozen patty. The green beans came straight from a can. The mashed potatoes were good as was the biscuit. Their breakfast is much better than their lunches.

I had eaten here just once with a friend and although not a perfect experience previously I thought I would give it another chance. Huge mistake! First off the waitress took forever to get to me. Then even longer to bring my drink order even though when I got there they weren't packed or even busy. They were fully aware... More

Extremely nice staff and excellent food. Decor and building is a little 'tired'. Love their breakfasts, any ones. And they have a wonderful salad bar. To save money, order "chicken finger snack w/one trip salad bar", you will have a wonderful meal. Specials almost daily for lunch and dinner. Another local favorite I will return to often. Enjoy

The best bacon cheddar burger ever! Hand patties, crisp bacon. Ohhhh, definitely no ordinary burger! Plus, chicken tenders have no rival!! I will make the 30 minute trip to get either the chicken tenders or burger!! Fries Are good and crispy, baked potatoes and salad bar good. That's about all I've eaten there! Delicious!

This is one of the very best places to eat! Similar to Cracker Barrel style cooking but much better in my opinion. It is a "mom&pop" store, and there are usually so many people in there you do wait a while for your food. However, it's most definitely soooo with it!! I recommend it!

This is some of the best homestyle country cooking in Cleveland, GA. Some awesome cat head biscuits for breakfast my favorite is a tenderloin sandwich with fired egg, cheese, may and tomato and hot sauce on the side on wheat. Super salad bar in the evenings always service with a smile.

We ate breakfast here twice during our trip to Helen ~ we usually don't eat at places more than once when we travel because we like to experience different places in the area ~ but the food was so good and the prices were great, we had to come back twice. *Note that when you go in, you order breakfast...

Glenda's is a small diner that is consistent for great food at great prices. Also the homemade pies and cakes are worth the trip alone
