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

As North Carolina natives my wife and I have been to and past Mount Airy several times but never been to the Snappy Lunch or walked around town and visited the stores and attractions-until now. We had to visit Snappy Lunch and have the famous" Pork Chop Sandwich" everyone talks about. We were not disappointed. The interior looks small as... More

Step back in time to Mayberry 1960! The pork chop sandwich exceeded expectations. Met the owner Mary who took our order. The service, southern hospitality, décor, and outstanding, cheap food - the best!

Snappy's factors into The Andy Griffith Show in one episode and was frequented by school-age Andy Griffith as he actually grew up in Mount Airy. Long history to Snappy's back to 1920's I believe. Menu is incredibly simple - THE dish here is fried pork cutlet sandwich with chili and ??? (My wife had it, not me but I did... More

Love the history and the story behind this business. Wish they offered fries! My husband had a burger that was very good and I had a Ham & Cheese. Wish I had gone for the pork chop sandwich since it seemed to be ordered by everyone else there!

A few items on the menu. We got seated quickly and food service was fast. Definitely nothing fancy but the food was good. Service was fast and friendly. Not very big so you may have to wait.

Thank celesteh308
