We have visited this place several times and I love the Harvest Salad! Mark loves the Burgers! We always find something good here and the service is fast and southern friendly!

Great place to eat and visit with friends and family. Awesome tea! You get a scoop of ice cream with every meal! Very family friendly and has separate meeting room

We were passing through town & I found this suggestion online. The chicken strip basket was perfect - crunchy strips & fries served with country gravy. Plus you get a free cup of ice cream after your meal.

Having grown up in Mount Pleasant I have many, many memories of Herschels over the years. I try not to miss a chance to eat here when I am back home. They have a great selection of home style comfort foods. There is lots of variety, not just burgers and chicken strips, but everything on the menu is really good.... More

I'd choose not to eat here if I had a choice. Pretty basic, not my tastes. It was highly recommended by locals, we prefer other restuarants.

It may have as much to do with nostalgia as anything but Herschels is a family favorite for us! The menu has lots of variety and everything is what you would expect in a counter service type diner. Staff has always been friendly and attentive. If you see a Herschels you should drop in and grab a bite to eat.

We were hoping to be in time for their breakfast when we stopped by recently, but, oh, snap, we were just a few minutes too late since they stopped serving breakfast at 11 am. No matter. Herschel's Restaurant offers their customers such a wonderful Homestyle Menu comprised of Burgers, Sandwiches , Salads, Baked Potatoes as well as two types of... More

I stopped at Herschel's for lunch recently. It was a very busy place, with the restaurant nearly full, and several cars backed up at the drive thru window. You order your meal at the counter, like at most fast food restaurants. They give you a number which you put on your table, and one of the employees brings your order... More

Stopped by the other day for lunch. Ordered, grilled chicken salad. It was ok, but absolutely not fresh! Lettuce was a mixture of fresh and crispy and wilted. Service was not friendly at all and a little slow I thought for a salad. Probably won't be going back there for awhile.

BY far the best local fast food type restaurant. The menu is versatile and offer good salads as well as dinner plates and the usual burger type stuff. Herschel's is good because of the people as well. Ms Thomas is the best. She has great employees who offer friendly service. This is our go to Sunday night after church spot... More
