“Country cooking but in a chain setting”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

This place has regular diner fare, meatloaf, burgers, and hot dogs. The food is nothing special and kind of expensive for diner food. The only thing they do well is milk shakes.

“Friendly wait staff serve comfort food in casual family atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Daily specials, blue plate dinners, and burgers galore are great family fare, especially when visiting the area for outlet shopping. Convenient to new Tanger Outlet Mall in Mebane. Their chicken pie, a Sunday special, features all white meat chicken in a creamy sauce served in a bowl with a puff pastry top crust. Save room for dessert: the peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream is served in an oversized fountain drink glass...perfect for two to share.

“Excellent Service, Great Value and WONDERFUL food!”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

We were shopping at the Tanger Outlets and was referred to the Diner. Crystal offered us great service with a smile. We ordered a chicken sandwich with bacon & pepperjack cheese with coleslaw, Cheese burger w/fried okra & chicken strips with fries. Food was fresh and very good. Nothing gressy! overall a great meal!

“Good food FAST”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

We were going to the airport and saw the sign along Rt 40 for the restaurant so we took a chance. i always say that if the parking lot is full, the restaurant is usually pretty good. the parking lot was full and when we walked in there were about 6-8 people in front of us but we got a table right away.

The waitress was prompt to take our drink orders ans when she returned with the drinks she took our food order and no less than 3-4 minutes later we had our order!! I what was similar to a chicken pot pie but there was no crust and in it's place was the lightest, flakiest, pastry I have ever had. I was in the mood for some comfort food so this was perfect. The dinner came with mashed and gravy and green beans. I think the tab for the meal for two was around $25.

By the way, the restaurant was super clean too, brightly lit, with a old diner theme although it is really just a standard building.
