Ultimate pork chop sandwhich

This is the fastest non-fast food restaurant ever! Ordered and 123 seconds later the food arrived. The breaded pork chop sandwhich with everything was a cornucopia of blending flavors which tasted superb. I would have ordered another, but was full after the first one, it was huge. The prices... read more

We chose lunch here based on the fact that it was often included in the filming of "Mayberry RFD". It is known for its famous pork chop sandwich from the show. It felt very authentic as remembered, including a paper menu. The food was good and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent - every server who passed our table... More

It's bare bones with serving sandwich on paper but it's do delicious you won't mind. They keep expenses down and servers are wonderful, making you feel welcome. It's old time experience, plain and folksy!

I took a group to Snappy Lunch on Saturday, November 28, 2015. The service was fast. However, the quality of the pork chop sandwich is not as good as it once was. Maybe the restaurant has switched food vendors and gone with a lower priced pork chop. The group enjoyed the experience here though.

We went hear more for the experience than anything as this is where Andy Griffith went as a child. The food was nothing spectacular. It's very busy around lunch time, of course we were there during the Christmas / New Year season and there were a few tourists in town, passing through on their way to or from other parts... More

I went after seeing on TV that it had the best Pork Chop Sandwich in NC. I know think it is alot of hype. The sandwich was ok, I expected alot more flavor but the chop was bland. Maybe some bottle of hot sauce on the table will do the trick. With that said, I loved the quaint feel of... More

One of our favorite places to eat. We had the famous pork chop sandwich ~ awesome! Prices are cheap, food is abundant. Don't make a trip to Mt. Airy unless you eat here!

Walk through the door and you are back into the 50s. The prices are so low you have to wonder how they can stay in business. Their BLT and grilled cheese sandwiches were so good and we would certainly eat there again when we are in the area.

We had a chance to spend a few hours in Mt. Airy. We stopped at the Snappy Lunch. I had no idea of the history of the diner. I ordered a hot dog for $1.50 and a bag of chips. The hot dog was pink. Didn't ask why but for $1.50 I figured I'd try it. It was okay. I... More
