We had two meals there during our recent visit to the area. Such delicious all homemade food. Hot, fresh, service was prompt & courteous. Fried green tomatoes with just the right amount of batter. Great homemade barbeque sauce, one of us had a famous Carolina burger, one had a chicken tender basket & one had wonderful homemade fresh tomato soup. All outstanding. With drinks under $20.00. Will definitely return!

The Highway Diner was a fun place to eat and very close to our hotel. Food was tasty, good home cooking, and portions were more than adequate. Loved the décor. Waitresses were a little slow and spent a lot of time talking with the locals. When they did get around to us they were very courteous and our food was brought to us in a timely manner. Most likely we'll eat here again on our return trip home.

Great location. I love the club sandwich and their cakes are awesome. Like you can sit outside and eat.

Was very disappointed at the quality of food. I was looking forward to something much better. I went for pork chop and vegetables. Frozen and from a can best describe it. Service was slow even for a Friday night.

Stopped for breakfast - service was very slow & everything was extremely greasy, even the egg was swimming in grease.
