I have been here several times with my family. We always enjoy everything we get there I have never had a bad meal. If you're going there for the first time I strongly recommend you try one of their Applewood chicken dinners they are fantastic.

This is a great place for comfort food. The food is great, the people are nice, and the service is quick. The spaghetti and chicken parm are delicious and hearty.

I enjoy my few visits to Blue Ribbon, it's a good place to take family as they have a wide variety of items, their mini corn dogs are delicious! We have always received our food quickly and it's always been hot. We like to take a pint of their applejack sauce home to grill out with, it's delicious.

The food at Blue Ribbon in Mebane, NC is excellent. I particularly like the Applejack Chicken.. I always get the Applejack Sauce (sold by the pint) to take home..

My last meal at the Blue Ribbon Diner, I decided to try the fried fish. It was disappointing and the waitress insisted I try something else. I traded in the fried grouper for the chicken breast. The manager came by and brought additional hot complimentary fries, since mine had gotten cold. The meal turned out fine and I really appreciated... More

Yes it's a diner and has diner food. But the choices were good and our lunches were flavorful. Good fries. Daily specials give you a lot of food for the money. Dessert we had - strawberry cobbler - came in a soda fountain type of glass and was "berry" good. Near I85 so a good stopping point.

We visit the area often to see family and have eaten here a couple of times. Good food choices, nothing fancy. Nice 50's atmosphere. Every meal has been good but not outstanding. Will be heading to Mebane next week and will probably eat here again.

We always stop in here when we are in the area. We tend to sit at the counter and watch TV and chat with the staff. They are great! This trip, I had the fork and knife burger, which is a burger on texas toast covered in gravy (as are the fries) which you eat with...you guessed it.... a fork... More
