Review of Bluebird Diner - CLOSED

Bluebird Diner

Description: Famous diner featured on the Andy Griffith show. Most popular food choice is the porkchop sandwich. This porkchop is so tender it's like eating pie. Best meal of our 3 day trip!

We were there on Memorial Day and it was CROWDED!!!!!! Staff does NOT keep the place tidy and seem a little overworked, but the food was good. I've never had such a tender piece of meat. The best Filet Mignon's wouldn't come close to that porkchop melting in my mouth. I gave it an average rating only because I felt like the place should have been cleaner. The food and value for your meal was GREAT!

If you watched the Andy Griffith Show you know about the BLue Bird Diner being mentioned. We had a snack of the famous "Hurricane Cake" there and it was fun to say that you were there. The food is mostly fries, burgers - generally that sort of fare and things like "key lime pie" for dessert. It was neat to try the house special dessert- the famous cake. Everyone we know is envious we were THERE- and like "Floyd the Barber" that shop is still there -- it was and is a part of legend.

Their onion rings are made with a homemade batter. Fantastic. They also have a great variety on their menu and everything we had was great. The people went out of their way to welcome you and were very friendly. If you want the pork chop sandwich, then no, go to Snappy's, but the menu and everything else at Snappy's is extremely limited. I am not a pork chop sandwich fan myself and was disappointed to find very few choices on the menu there.

The pork chop sandwich with fries was only 4.85! The meat was tender and very tasty. The french fries were better than average. The peanut butter pie was worth the $3 as well! Great service and friendly people. It's what you expect from a small town diner.

We recently visited the "Mayberry" area and were disappointed when we saw the sign outside Snappy Lunch saying "Closed This Week." One of the friendly locals recommended the Blue Bird since we were looking to sample Snappy's famous pork chop sandwich and we were told that they offered a reasonable facsimile. We got two to go back to the hotel and found they were pretty average. Lots of bland fried breading on the patty, lettuce, tomato and a regular burger bun. Obviously, we can't compare the sandwich to the original, but we'll be sure that Snappy Lunch will be open next time we visit the area.
