We had breakfast here, it was good but not great. What makes this place great is the small town atmosphere, real southern cooking, and true hospitality. They only accept cash or checks!

This is a nice little mom and pop place in downtown Hartsville. One of us had the lunch special and it was very good. The other had a hamburger. No complaints. Basic fare but done well. Love the quaint atmosphere as well.

Just had to stop in and eat where the locals eat! Food was excellent, service good and friendly. Folks could tell we were from out of town....but they welcomed us. Nice local eatery buzzing with activity. Not expensive at all.

Went for breakfast and it was great. Nice waitress, standard fare done down-to-earth style. Not fancy, just a come-as-you-are place. Community round table in the back offers a chance to chat with the locals who seem to be friendly and fun. Neat experience with good breakfasts or lunches only.

Ate lunch here today for the first time and it was great ! Had the chili - cheese burger and fries and it couldn't have been better. If you are looking for homemade chili and fresh not frozen burger then you need to give Carolina Lunch a try. I feel you will be well satisfied.

Simple. Great small town country breakfast. No reason to go anywhere else. Fantastic country ham!! Try sitting at the counter for the official feel.

Thank Ken C
