Troy's Diner welcomes guests rapidly, takes orders, and presents excellent meals. The fried chicken salad contrasted hot tenders with crisp-cool greens, carrots, and dressing. The waitress kept our tea glasses filled.

Web site says Juke box but they don't have it anymore. The atmosphere could have used some music for sure. Took 20+ high school kids & all food came out correctly but limited staff... So it was delivered slowly. Shakes are yummy & huge.. Couldn't finish.

Visited Troy's 105 Diner on a short trip to Boone, NC in November 2016. The variety offered was great, and the food was good. I had an omelet, toast, etc. Sampled the pancakes ordered by another member of our party and they were great too! Service was fantastic from the wait staff. There was a long line but they did...

We stopped in on our way through town. Looks cool but that's about it. Food was only average, milk shakes were great I'll say. The waitress was great, she'd stop and check on us during her breaks eating her salad with her FINGERS at the bar. That's nasty, don't wait on customers if you're eating with your fingers in front...

The looks are typical from the 50s, it was clean, cute and the burgers (Angus) were big enough and cooked to perfection. Definitely a good option to stop if you are passing by Boone on your way to Banner Elk or other places nearby.

We love to go for Breakfast, But have been for Lunch and Dinner too! Lots of good food to choose from and the portions are large at very reasonable prices!! Love the atmosphere of an old 50s Diner. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Nothing fancy, but it's a great place for all ages. The locals, like us, love... More

We enjoyed the chicken sandwich and flounder and the kids enjoyed the grilled cheese. The chicken tenders weren't that good. Staff was friendly and food was good!

We totally loved our shakes at Troy's. Made to order, there are several choices, including peanut butter, cookies and cream, pineapple and coffee, as well as the typical vanilla and chocolate. I wish we'd known how big they were. We'd ordered food too, which was good, but could barely eat it because we were so full. Recommended.

Good for breakfast, lunch of dinner. I especially enjoy their daily specials. The also have the best hand breaded chicken tenders in town.

Came here because it was recommended by someone from here as "best breakfast." There's not a host stand or anything so when you walk in, you're standing in line waiting for a spot. I thought that was annoying because there was a big party ahead of us and as there was no table immediately available for their big party, our... More
