After hearing how great this place was we decided to try it. No one in our family was super impressed with their meal. We ordered burgers and hot dogs, both were just so so. I would try another place if you want a good burger and fries.

I was born and raised in Haywood County and Ammons has always been a go-to for Friday and Saturday nite hamburgers. They used to have curb hops and everyone went "crusin'" around the buildings. The curb hops are gone but the burgers, fries and shakes are still good.

Love 'em! Just like the old soda fountain types, thick & creamy. Nice folks inside to serve you and great home style daily specials.

We have been there twice and have left both times very dissatisfied. The food is overly greasy and makes you feel sick for the rest of the day. They don't give you a plate when you order a burger. I had a shake and it seemed like all they did was fill up a cup with some very low quality... More

We stopped by one day on a fluke, and had a very nice lunch. Prices were very reasonable and the service was fast and good.

We stopped here as we always do when we are in Waynesville, for a couple of hot dogs. Service was friendly and place was packed. They have great big crinkle French fries and good soft serve ice cream. It's an old established burger, fry place. If you go in with the attitude of being friendly and experiencing a blast from...

We used the curb service in early June. The gentleman who served us was EXCELLENT. He was personable and courteous. We ordered hot dogs and hamburgers, and they were great! The pricing is also VERY reasonable.We will definitely be visiting Ammons again in the near future!

We visit Maggie Valley every couple years and for some reason we forget how terrible their food is. Apparently, the locals that enable this place to stay open, have no taste buds and love wasting money. My husband and I ordered hamburger steak with salad bar. I got green beans instead of baked potato or fries and a roll was... More

The chicken and dumplings and the hotdogs. Menu said it was their specialty and it was right. Have made special trips there from Cherokee just to eat.

Ammon's is the place to go for good coffee and ice cream. It is convenient and reasonable and is close to the Conference center at Lake Junaluska.
