“Average food, friendly staff, filthy floor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

After seeing that Addie's had a for sale sign in the window, we stopped at The Classic Diner for a late lunch. There were still a fair number of patrons in the restaurant so I figured the state of the floor was a result of the lunch rush. However during the 1 hour we were there, no one ever made any attempt to sweep up the many bits of food, straw covers or napkins on the floor under the open tables. Not a good sign. That said, the burgers and fries were good diner quality food and the sweet tea was refreshing. On the whole though I would not return if I were to pass through Tarboro again.

“A weekly pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

The Classic Diner is exactly that , classic. The food is classic diner food done very well. There is nothing fancy here. Burgers, fires, hot dogs , breakfast fare. On Thursday and Friday nights you can get ribeye steaks and ribs. They are usually packed. Their burgers cannot be beaten.
The atmosphere is also classic. Decorated in a 50's style it takes you back to a simpler time when you walk in.
The service is also classic. Wait staff is friendly and are good at keeping drinks full. You are likely to meet the owner at any time as he frequently makes rounds of tables making sure you are happy with your visit. Really worth checking out.
