I've lived in Garner for 20 years. Never ventured into the toot-n-tell. However, our favorite breakfast place was closed so we gave it a try. I didn't care for it. Now, I grew up going to country restaurants, but country doesn't have to mean dirty. The place had a film everywhere, my wife's silverware was dirty and had food baked... More

One of the things Garner lacks is small family owned restaurants. Most of the ones around are chains. So I had been looking around for something different. As I was driving past one day, I noticed the restaurant and decided me and the hubby would have to give it a try. I got a laugh out of the name. And... More

Breakfast special was good. I liked the small town feel. There is also a breakfast buffet in the back but I didn't get it. Looked a tad picked over. The waitress was excellent and never let my coffee get cold!

My husband and I eat monthly at Toot-n-Tell. I can remember the first time I ate there, my husband kept walking through all these different eating areas before we sat down by the buffet. The food is cooked to perfection, and there is plenty of good food to choose from. Their salad is always fresh and they have a wide... More

Toot N Tell is in the town of Garner NC. It is a quaint "oleTime" place where you feel like your stepping back in time. If you are into fancy fru fru type of restaurants with 40 TV's and 100 kinds of beer, this place isn't for you, but if you were a child of the 70's and ate with... More

Since moving to Raleigh, several locals recommended Toot-N-Tell in Garner. It has been there since the 1940s - and seems to have never been updated. My wife and I were in Garner and tried it for lunch. Maybe I've dined at too many fine restaurants, but the experience for me was like having a meal of leftovers in your grandmother's... More

This restaurant has been in place for many years. It's a little tired on the inside but the food is home cooked at it's best.
