First of all, their website is pretty outdated for prices, specials, etc. I had open faced hot beef. Was just so, so. Would not get again. Mashed potatoes were good. Hubby had fried chicken special and he liked it. We had a real ditzy waitress....More

Based on all the billboards touting "Stan's Restaurant since 1947", I was expecting a quaint old-fashioned diner. Instead, it's a Cracker Barrel wannabe at a gas station. We arrived for breakfast about 8 am & the place was empty. In any event, the waitress was...More

Whenever traveling to the South we hope we planned the time well for breakfast at Stan's. It is definitely Southern cooking and there's plenty on your plate!

We stopped at the motel across the street and Stan’s looked like a nice place for dinner but what a mistake. The pork was soggy and the cornbread was like paper with no taste. The onion rings were generic. The only thing that was edible...More

After a very long day of driving, a good meal and rest was on our minds. We stopped at Stan's for gas and decided to eat there. Glad we did...the burgers and homemade fries were delish.

Found this place accidentally and it was the cleanest place we had seen on our trip. The staff are so friendly and the food was so good. Best coffee I’ve had also. If you’re passing here would recommend a stop.
