We had two Sloopy's burgers, shared a fried, and drank sweet tea. The food was good, the tea w a excellent, and the decor was nice. However, maybe it was just a bad day for them, but the service wasn't good. We were the only customers at the time, but they were slow getting around to taking our over and... More

Hello there, I am so sorry to hear this! I hate that the customer service was lacking, if there at all. I personally would like to invite you back in hopes that you change your mind with the service. Overall we try to keep a welcoming, fun environment and I'm sorry you didn't get that. If you decide to come... More

The food is good the atmosphere is very old school classic diner feel. I found the owner rude and hard to deal with. I have been told I was in there when he was having a bad day that he is normally a nice guy but the way he was talking in front of the family I haven't been back.... More

Hey there, I am so sorry to hear about this! I'm not sure if it was the owner or an emloyee that has worked there for 6 plus years, people confuse the two but either way there's no reason a customer should be uncomfortable whilst trying to enjoy their meal. I would love to hear back from you if you... More

Steve has developed a great thing! A small, clean, cool throwback kind of diner. I have not had anything bad there. Sloppy's is known for their burgers -- and they are very good. I put it in the top 3 burgers anywhere in the Tri-Cities! However, one of my favorite things to get at Sloopy's is the fish tacos! I... More

After placing a carry out order we noticed that we had received the wrong food and the fries were awful. I called to voice my complaint to the business. Shortly after I then received a return call from "Kelly" and she began to argue with me. No amount of arguing with a customer will make the order correct or the... More

Hello there, "boss429fan". Well I have to say I was quite taken back with this review. My first response would naturally be to apologize for how you felt I treated you because that's who I am as a person. You had a brief encounter with me a few minutes over the phone (supposedly) and you felt this review was necessary?... More

So, today was the first time eating at Sloopy's. We ordered the philly steak, fries, onion rings and a super cheese burger. Definitely, we will be back. The atmosphere was great and the owner was very friendly with a quick wit about him. The portions are big and the prices are nice. I would highly recommend to anyone. Plus, there... More

Unique little diner with wide variety on the menu. The man I assume was owner was funny with very dry humor. Burger was good, I'd go back.
