After reading TA reviews (thank you) we tried dinner. The ribs, flash fried Brussels sprouts, salmon, sweet potato were excellent. Chicken Pot Pie was too hot to eat, but ok after 1 long wait to cool. Very friendly and welcoming staff. This family- owned and operated restaurant has low prices, clean well-decorated surroundings and no frills good food!

From the outside, someone driving by would never believe how wonderful the food inside actually is!! It's a plain, simple looking place outside and in, but the food is great, the prices are very reasonable, the service is good and the FOOD!!! Excellent. Wish I lived closer so I could go more often.

From the outside this place looks like a typical diner. On the inside, it is a typical diner, however; the food was anything but typical. I had the filet hamburger with Chipotle ranch, smoked bacon, provolone cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. My fiancee had the beef tip lunch special with fries and hushpuppies. Both were very tasty, the beef tips literally... More

Generations is a quick and easy stop. There is a large selection of American Traditional foods. They accommodated our large group and made us feel welcomed. The food was excellent. Especially the Fried Brussels sprouts. Our waitress was very nice,patient and sweet to our children

This restaurant was suggested to us when staying in the area. The decor is basic but the food is not. I had a burger and onion rings. My husband had the half rack of ribs. Both were very good! The prices were not bad. The burger was $5, It was the best I have had in a very long time.... More

This is by far my favorite place to eat in Jonesville/Elkin. I absolutely love The food, the choices and the staff. My favorite is their chicken salad and their chicken florentine. You will not be disappointed!!

On a recent New Year's trip to the Yadkin Valley area my wife and I found a pet friendly motel and brought the family dog. While looking for local dining options I went on TripAdvisor and found this restaurant to be highly rated...and rightly so! On New Year's Eve I had their chicken and waffles in peach syrup which was... More

We visited this restaurant slightly before six on a Saturday evening and found it very busy, but with no wait. We were greeted promptly and quickly seated and given drinks. There were a couple of televisions playing college football, and--as the name implies--many different patrons of various ages there, including groups with small kids and grandparents. Friendly staff and quick... More
