“Good (Not Great) Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Blue Ribbon is one of our favorite places for family dinners. The food is very very good but not what I'd call fine dining. If you are in the mood for a fried bologna sandwich, chicken pot pie or a great kids corn dog plate then Blue Ribbon is your place.

“Did not let us down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We visited the Blue Ribbon Diner tonight after shopping at the local outlet mall and it definitely did not let us down. We were sat immediately, the service was superb and the food was delicious. My husband tried the Texas burger with gravy, I had the country fried steak and our daughter had the chicken tenders. The portions were large and the food was awesome! We even opted to try a milkshake which we typically don't do. One milkshake was enough to give each of us a full glass , which are chilled by the way, and it was delicious. Will definitely be visiting again soon!

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Was about to leave Mebane after a business meeting but needed to have a quick lunch before long drive home. Saw the Blue Ribbon Diner right before the highway entrance so thought it would be a good place to stop. We were seated immediately. The waiter was helpful in recommending their hamburgers for lunch. My colleague had the chicken and gravy lunch platter. The cheese burger and fries were fresh and cooked to my liking. The wheat bun was warm as if it had just been taken out of the oven. We were both satisfied with our lunch. The place filled up quickly. We were able to get back on the road in 30 minutes having a very satisfying lunch. Would return to try their milkshakes.

“Best Fried Chicken ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Love this place. The food was so delicious. I cannot wait to return and plan on ordering the same thing over and over. Fried Chicken, fried okra and french fries. Awesome!

“Great food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Great service and great food...what more can you ask for? The food was to our table in less than ten minutes. It was hot and fresh and delicious! The brownie I got to take back to the hotel wasn't worth the money. It was dry and not very chocolatey.
