Eating here is like taking a step back in time a few decades! My first trip there I tried the pork chop sandwich. I thought the reviews were overrated but my daughter and husband really enjoyed it. Loved the burger on my second trip there....More

Old timey atmosphere with good & inexpensive breakfast. Great biscuits and gravy. Styrofoam plates were a bit odd, but with friendly service with ample portions. Check out Floyd's barbershop, Wally's service station and Mayberry courthouse while in town.

Pork Chop Sandwich was great. My wife got a hotdog. They don't sell fries, only chips. But, it is the kind of diner you remember from Mayberry show days. It is a must visit. Great memorabilia as well.

The service and prices were great, but 5 of us had the pork chop sandwich all the way and we all agreed it wasn’t very good. Somehow it didn’t have much taste, lacking seasoning. And definitely didn’t look like the advertised picture! The slaw, chili,...More

What a good time we had here. Also, the well known pork chop sandwich was great.. We hit it just right...a late lunch on a week day. From what I understand there is usually a line at peak times. Staff, as well as other customers...More

Yes, it is made on site. It is made from cabbage and they have their special sauce.

Inside space/tables are tight so I don't think pets would be a good idea for inside - as for outside, there is no patio.
