This is a good place to eat, the food is good and the prices are not bad. We enjoy the radio station that they have

It has been in business as long as I can remember. I'm sure at least 40 years in the same location. They serve a Lot-a-burger with French Fries that is wonderful.

Fabulous good food!! The burgers are awesome & the bbq is fabulous! The hand scooped milk shakes are just what you need for that sweet treat! You can't go wrong with anything you pick! Fun music and games for the kids. It's a great family restaurant!!

Old school burger joint serving up average food at a reasonable price. My burger was tasty with a nice grill toasted bun. The onion rings while tasty were over fried...making the batter too hard and imparting a hint of old grease flavor. This place is one of those local places that has been around forever. One of the coolest things... More

I love this place. It's real home cooking just not at home. The burgers are amazing so much so might even make a vegetarian eat one. Overall great food and fun atmosphere I go whenever I'm down that way.

First - love the food here, the Lottaburger is one of my favorite sandwiches anywhere. The only thing food wise I don't really care for is their pizza, so I just don't get pizza here. Been eating at the Brightstar when it was in Stanley, then in Mt Holly before they remodeled - What's starting to bother me about the... More

Try it you'll like it. Small restaurant, good service, good prices, good food. Hamburgers are the bomb. This place has been in business since I was a young boy, high school hang out at one time.

I so wanted to like this place, it was a cute throw-back to the hip restaurants of old, but the food our group had was so poor for the most part, I don't think I'll ever go back. On the good side of the menu... my wife's did love her Texas Chicken sandwich and my son had the bacon cheeseburger,... More

BrightStar is a great place to get a good meal or sandwich. Salad Bar is great. Pizza is always hot. Ice cream in a Cone anytime. Hot dogs are the BOMB, none better;. Service is quick nice and friendly. I love the call in line and the food is always ready when you get there. They always remember your birthday.... More
