been going there for lunch and ice cream for years, quaint little old fashion, with antiques and a nice atmosphere.

This is a Charming little ice cream shop with good sandwiches (although they are small portions, which we really need anyway). Their ice cream is very good and the atmosphere is amazing because they have a quality antique shop involved with the business as well. Our grand girls absolutely loved the old-fashioned fashioned carousel horse ride, as well as all... More

One of the local attractions pointed out to us when we came to spend the weekend by the lake. Excellent ice cream and great ambiance -- loved the rocking chairs on the porch.

Best Lil’ Corner is a really neat little store located on the round-a-bout. It was wonderfully decorated inside and out with items from the 50’s & 60’s. It brought back a lot of memories, especially of my old local drug store ice cream counter. The inside is crammed with so many old items it takes a while to look at... More

Great atmosphere...from the ol' drug store style counter to all the collectibles throughout the restaurant. Always friendly greetings from the staff and owner and always good service. My favorite is the Carolina Burger. If you're into nostalgia, this place is for you...or if you're just into a good old fashioned burger with some good old fashioned ice cream, treat yourself...

On my recent visit to NC, I make it a point to stop at Best 'Lil' Corner. The quality of the Antique Building, tastefully decorated with antiques, takes me back to when I was young! The Ambiance is lovely, friendly and inviting to children & adults! To top it off, the Angus Burger was the best ever. (The owner, Sheila,... More

The store is neat place resembling an old small country store. We got hamburgers and shakes. The food was good, but nothing extra special. The owner was very friendly, but I do understand how some may have experienced poor service. One of the young ladies waiting tables does not have the most outgoing personality. I could see where some folks... More

We happened upon this lil place around lunch and are glad we did. But "lil" is the name of the game here. The food was good, especially my home style fries, but portions were TINY. The potato salad side with the burgers was literally maybe ONE tablespoon. Meatball sub was good. My son got maybe six broken "from the bottom... More
