Always a good place for lunch!

My wife and I both had the chicken and dumplings on the lunch special menu. They have something different every day and this was good. My favorite is the fried chicken and I think that is on Thursdays. The sides and tea are always good. I would say the average age of customer is 50 to 75 years old... read more

Aside from the fact that this Primos is located just on the other side of our Wendover neighborhood, it is the Go-To place for a great meal ANY time of day!!! From eggs to burgers to Dinner Plate Specials, you can't go wrong at a Primos!!!

First, the staff was amazing. Friendly, welcoming, flat out 100% on customer service. Second, The Strawberry Cake!!!! We went there for cake only. We've heard people raving about it and couldn't take it any longer. We had to try it. I took one bit and almost cried! It was sooooo good!!! Strawberry cake is not my favorite dessert but from...

This restaurant is always, always busy so go early. They serve a great breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plate lunches daily and good home cooking as well as salads and sandwiches. Absolutely wonderful cakes, pies, cookies, desserts and they have chicken salad, pimento cheese and casseroles to go ready for your frig. Good family place too.

We went in the middle of the afternoon. Food was very good. Hamburger steak was homemade and not frozen. Large portion. Had turnip greens and purple hull peas. They were great. My wife had homemade mac and cheese which was also delicious. Also got a piece of strawberry cake to go. Their bakery is awesome.

Our family loves Primos. This trip I had the full Southern breakfast, and as always, it was absolutely perfect. This place knows how to do biscuits, and I find myself trying to replicate their pancakes at home with no luck. I think the magic is in their enormous griddles and recipes that have stood the test of time.

We both ordered the fried catfish with 2 sides, roll or cornbread and a drink. The catfish was perfectly battered and fried. Sides are always good there. I had green beans and turnip greens and he had peas and turnip greens. We cleaned our plates. All staff very friendly and helpful. You order at the counter and they deliver your... More

Stopp d here for a quick lunch. Not quite the NJ type diner, but good food and decent prices. Chicken salad was good, but the cake looked better

Simple diner with very good "home cooked" style meals, daily blue plate specials, and friendly atmosphere. If there is room left for dessert, the carrot cake is not to be missed.
