Overpriced hamburgers & shakes and dry fries! However fried pickles and chicken tenders is about all I would eat here. Salads are iceburg letteuce only. Told manager he should consider better salads, but see my thoughts carry no weight. I can eat iceburg lettuce and ranch at home. Would go there if salads were good! Won't be back for a long time unless I hear of changes.

My kids love Blue Ribbon. It's #1 on their list any time the question of where to eat out comes up and this usually means a 30 minute round trip drive for us. The burgers are well prepared, the fried pickles are incredible, the chicken sandwiches are super as are the deserts (peach and strawberry cobbler..Mmmmm!). They also offer a standard diner plate with a special of the day and 2 vegetables which further mixes things up. I've not ordered a single item that didn't hit the spot. They also have some of the best sweet tea I've had anywhere. The staff is friendly and attentive and great with families with small kids. Do yourself a favor and check out Blue Ribbon if you're in the area.

This diner is awesome! It's menu is a little lackluster but they make EXCELLENT burgers.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel like you stepped back in to the 50's. The prices are pretty good as well. The desserts are so so.
