Traveling down I-95, we spent the night in Rocky Mount, NC. The Highway Diner is located at the junction of I-95 and NC 64. It was also two minutes from our lodging. Dinner consisted of the Thursday night special, Carleton pork chops. Not only was the diner full, almost everyone was ordering the special. The diner has a very strong... More

We stopped here on way back home due to the reviews we read here. Easy to get to and a fun place to enjoy a meal. We had the Pimento BLT and the Diner Burger for lunch. These are both served with green fried tomatoes and homemade pimento cheese. We both enjoyed our choices as they were delicious. We would... More

Excellent diner food served the way you like it. It was a tasty slice of highway diner food serving southern favorites. My wife especially liked the sweetened iced tea.

This is a classic-style hotel offering the basics--breakfast all day, burgers, sandwiches and some dinners. The service was good. We shared a dinner which they split onto two plates without asking. Our meals were tasty and the portions good. The cake was huge, but the pie seemingly made with canned filling, was disappointing. Breakfasts were also good, with two large... More

Great little diner by the hospital. It is set up like the diners in the 50"s. The service was fast and the food was good. The coffee was excellent.

Diner is within walking distance from Country Inn and Suites and Candlewood Hotels. We have taken out food (limited menu but sufficient) a few times on our travels south. Sandwiches, fries, omelets, etc were very good. Typical "diner" food.

The food was good, and the service was excellent. Nothing remarkable, but good food for great prices. Recommend for a quick meal! My husband thought his cheeseburger was really good.

I eat at this diner at least once per week. It is in a great location off Winstead Ave and Hwy 64, just one exit from i-95. This place has a 50's diner feel. The breakfast is really good. I recommend the "U-Turn" if you are really hungry. They also serve the typical hamburger/milkshake type of thing and they do... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while traveling back home from PA. The diner isn't far from I-95 and offers a wide variety of food. We were initially struck by the number of vehicles in their parking lot as it was a Sunday and not yet noontime. Actually, as it turned out, we were very happy we had... More
