I ate at Wayside probably 3 or 4 times week while working in Oakboro. I grew up with a mom who worked in a small town restaurant just like Wayside so I can say that I know good from bad. Each day they had a good selection of meals for the daily special and their menu was pretty big to... More

I eat here fairly frequently. The food is pretty good. They have a large menu with a decent vegetable selection. Good grilled chicken salad, decent pitas, good burgers, decent plate dinners. Menu is similar to a diner. Good breakfast menu. Reasonably priced. Decent service. Older building.

I have been here several times and although the food is reasonably decent, the prices are not.

The pita sandwiches are very tasty. My wife had the fried flounder and said it was prepared very well. The only complaint with the food was that her Blackeyed peas were cold while the fried squash was too hot to eat without injury. Service was friendly and reasonably fast (excluding the kitchen, which seemed more involved with sending out burgers... More

This place has been around forever...because it is so good. Have the best hamburgers. Sometimes you may have to wait awhile to get your food because they are normally busy all the time, but it is worth it.
