Great value! Pizza and Carrot Cake was excellent! I had delivery so didn't get a chance to see the place. Delivery guy was friendly. I'll for sure get food from them again during my next visit to the area.

Great little local restaurant that will take you back in time. Hometown service and comfy atmosphere. Typical diner food and known for its Stromboli...good but a bit too greasy for me. Homemade chips are just like your favorite at the fair! Ice cream is good as well.

We stopped this year while attending the Mopar Nationals and the local people are not wrong about Clay's! The place was packed and we ended up waiting around 20 minutes to get in. Yes, the food and especially the ice cream deserts were definitely worth the wait! Will we be back - absolutely next year when we attend the Nationals!

What an amazing little place that the locals seem to rant and rave about! A good friend of mine insisted I try this place as he has been dining there for years. The first time I tried to eat at this place was a week day during lunch. I couldn't even find a place to park and had to go... More

I lived in Hebron for over 20 yrs. The best thing they have to offer is the Stromboli, honestly you can not beat it. As for the other items, pizza greasy. The taco salad was not editable... What ever hamburger they used tasted rotted. I've tried many times over the yrs of living there to eat but just not quality... More

We were on Historic Route 40, checked Trip Advisor, and stopped here for lunch; we never go wrong with Trip Advisor. Lots of nice customers enjoying delicious food. We shared a salad, a BLT, and had iced tea - everything was delicious, the service was just wonderful, and we enjoyed ourselves. Don't miss Clay's!

My visit was simple; I was traveling the National Road / Route 40 and wanted a milkshake for the road. I had seen this place earlier in the day, and make a point to stop on my return trip. Ohio has no shortage of ice cream places and dairy bars. Some stand out as being extraordinary in an already fine... More

My husband and I went to Hebron on whim. Just a drive through some place we had never been. Once there of course we got hungry and I found this little cafe on trip advisor claiming that Stromboli was their speciality. So, we thought, let's try it, and we were not disappointed. The staff was pleasant and the Stromboli did... More

Found this place with sense of nostalgia. Booths and tables filled with families from young to old. Has bookcase full of games to play while enjoying your food from salads, fries, burgers, pizza, calzones, stromboli and sandwiches and plethoria of ice cream choices. Most of wait staff young and helpful. Real local feeling.
