The Chamber advises us to get the famous pork sandwich here and we were not disappointed in the least. Upon ordering I noticed that the sandwich consisted of a pork chop, chili, Cole slaw, and tomato. I had some misgivings because I was not sure what these would taste like together. I got my husband's without the slaw but mine... More

Oh my what a great place to visit. You MUST have the pork chop sandwich. Nothing like you've ever had before and oh so good.

Back in the '60, I could recall an occasional mention of the Snappy Lunch on The Andy Griffith Show. It was presented as just a Home Town Diner in Mayberry where all the locals went. I've been to Mt. Airy many times over the years and at one time had a major customer here. For some reason, I never got... More

How can you go to Mt. Airy and not stop here? It's a must. Waited about 15 minutes to get in and it was well worth the wait. Had the fried pork chop sandwich with the works and a soda. Was a great choice. Very fast and friendly service made the experience even better.

The price is cheap which is a good thing. Got the famous pork chop sandwich. Major disappointment, the plainest pork chop I have ever had. This is a prom chop deep fried in some batter that has zero flavor. Ended up also ordering a hit with slaw and chili which was spot on red hot dog. Honestly other than the... More

They have really good biscuits. I tend to get a bacon biscuit and you get a good portion for the price. It can be busy during festivals and the weekend, so I normally go during the week. If you are visiting stop in!

Went for lunch - great as always. If you are a fan of the Andy Griffith Show or just a great sandwich in a place that is from the past this is your spot. Pork Chop Sandwich and breaded cheeseburgers are great. Check it out but come early as there is always a line and you know what thst means... More

Cute place with very quick and friendly service. Very limited menu...assorted sandwiches, chips, drinks. My son was disappointed with his grilled cheese. I tried the pork chop and found it tasty. I was reluctant to have it all the way as I found the combination odd, but it really was good, although messy.

We had to try the pork chop sandwich for lunch. It was Saturday and we ran the Mayberry 10K. After we had to try the sandwich for lunch. Got there around 11:30 and it was starting to fill up. The sandwich was great and enough for lunch. Not much on the menu but you go for the sandwich. I would... More
