I understand the place is listed on the National Historic Register which is great, but it's down hill from there. It's quaint, has decent food, the servers are cordial, but that's it for me.

This place is quaint and the servers were efficient and nice. The famous pork sandwich is really disappointing. The is no flavor to the pork at all. There is only so much coleslaw and tomato can cover up. Maybe the burgers are better. Cute place bad sandwich.

On Saturday, June 11, 2016, my sister-in-law, her husband, my wife, and I drove to Mount Airy to reminisce about Andy Griffith, et al. At their recommendation, we stopped in at Snappy Lunch and all had their pork chop sandwich special. The café does have an older feel with their tables and chairs, along with pictures on the walls representing... More

The line was long, but the wait was not. The prices were very reasonable. If you are looking for a great pork chop sandwich, this is the place. Andy Griffith ate here as a schoolboy.

They say a must do, but understand that being snappy means limited menu and not so great quality. Quick and easy is their Motto. Decor includes lots of pictures of Andy and the gang, but is otherwise very plain and simple. They do a lot of business quickly and prices are very reasonable!

A good lunch destination if you want a sandwich, hot dog, or Snappy's highly advertised pork chop sandwich for a quick lunch while taking in "Mayberry". Right in the heart of the bustling downtown businesses, the place isn't fancy, a typical sandwich shop, but the food is pretty good. Hot dogs were good, but then it's hard to mess up... More

This restaurant is small, and always crowded especially on Friday and Saturday. They are not opened on Sunday. Pork Chop all the way, and their breaded burgers cannot be beat.
