Based on info read in Our State Magazine, we decided to grab a bite of lunch at Mimi's on our way to Lake Lure. What a cute little place! The staff was so courteous and interesting and gave us directions to an event venue we planned to visit the next day. I ordered a hotdog and an order of onion... More

We tried pizza, a pork chop sandwich, a hot dog and a burger and none of it was acceptable. I can't imagine who declared this please the 2nd best pizza in the state. The person who took my hotdog order, who I can only guess was the owner, was loud and not very nice. It was really difficult to order... More

We happened by Mimi's Dairy O on our drive through town and decided to stop for ice cream. The selection of frozen treats is huge! Soft serve, hand-scooped, banana splits, "blizzard" type treats and more. My husband was hungy so he also ordered a made-to-order burger. All were excellent and we feel a good value for what we got. It's... More

We needed 5 pizzas. we were told 1 hour. After a hour and after we pay we are told 20 more minutes. When I explained we had 8 people heading to our house the nasty,mouthy, owner told me I should call all my quests and tell them I would be late. She thought this was helpful. On the plus side...

We ha been to Mimi's in the past for burgers and enjoyed it. This time we ordered pizza. I was not good. Lots of crust and no toppings. Then we paid almost $4.00 for an ice cream cone. It will be some time before we go back.

I don't know about all their burgers, fries, pizza and other food but the ice cream (in my opinion) isn't good at all. I've tried the soft serve and scooped hard serve on a couple different occasions. My husband and I both were disappointed and won't be going back.
