We visited during Mayberry Days and though we waited in line for over an hour it was worth it. Staff were all friendly and efficient and the famous pork chop sandwich was fabulous!! We even met some of the actors portraying some of the characters on the show. Great fun!!!

The Snappy Lunch has retained that old timey character. It's good to visit just to say you've been since it's so famous, but I have to rate the food as average to good. I had a grilled cheese sandwich with lettuce and tomato which was good. My dining partners all tried Snappy's most famous sandwich and said it was good... More

If you're driving through Mount Airy, the Snappy Lunch is a great little place for a quick lunch. We were in and out of there in 20 minutes and it was less expensive than if we'd had fast food somewhere. The hamburgers were okay, but the best thing to eat is the Pork Chop Sandwich. Just imagine a fried boneless... More

It was a great experience. The food was okay not great, but a fun place to say that we've been. BUT we love The Andy Griffith Show. The hospitality was great. Waitresses were very friendly!

Small place , lines, but moved pretty quick. Try the pork chop sandwich "as it comes"...fantastic. A must stop for the Mayberry fans, folks were nice who worked there. Cheap. Closes at 1:30, so watch your lunch time.

I wasnt expecting much but seriously the best service and best breakfast I have had. An actual homemade biscuit and the gravy bacon and eggs were exceptional. The service was amazing. The price was extremely affordable. I see why this place has been there so long! It will only go away when they choose to be done!

They say Andy Griffith liked to eat here, I can see why, this place reminds me of a small place in my hometown. Just a taste of local tradition, that makes you feel at home, good food.

My wife and I had lunch there on Oct 1st. Menu was fine. Service was just okay because I felt we were forgotten about after we were served our food. I ordered the "Famous Pork Chop Sandwich " all the way. It was not that tasty because the cole slaw was terrible- it tasted like the cabbage had the cabbage... More 

Thank Andy S
