“Good food nice location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Hearty breakfast toasted Western full eggs & bacon homefries & toast
good service & priced well. It's a
nice clean place.
Right beside flea market & across from parkette = family & pet friendly.
On Highway 8 in the Jordan Hallow make it an enjoyable stop!

“For what you're paying, try it out.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Ok, let me begin by saying, this is NOT fine dining! Betterballs is a diner that is mostly frequented by locals. They serve all-day breakfast and charge about $5 for burgers and fries. Fish and chips is a little greasy for me but they use good fish and charge less then $8. I suspect you're getting an idea of what Butterballs is all about; cheap, wholesome food served by friendly people. My wife have visited several times because my wife like visiting Flatrock Vineyard to purchase their Reisling. The other reason we visit is because we can sit on Butterball's patio and have lunch with our beagle, one of the only restaurants where she can join us. Have a relaxing meal at Butterballs.

“Expensive pedestrian.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Paid $38 for a fried food sample plate, a bowl of soup, a turkey wrap, 2 pops and 2 milks for lunch. For being a simple meal in a drab outdated diner, it was a rip off.

“Why?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Why can't this be a good restaurant? Is breakfast really that hard?
Is it really that difficult to make a meal that isn't greasy?
Is it really difficult to make a good burger?
With all the farms, is it really that difficult to have local ingredients?
I guess the new hours, which are shorter, means business is doing well?
Come on please start taking pride in your business, it could be great.

“never again!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

just got home from the worst lunch ever, the food was warm, one meal wrong, by the time the other 2 ppl in my party were finished there meal, mine arrived, it was a pathetic portion, of food on top of a generous portion of grease, told the waitress who could have cared less, and her answer was well of course its going to be greasy its fried food, i said yes i understand that but when the sampler platter all tasted the same right from pickles to fries, thats sad, she handed us our $44.00 bill, we paid, and that will be the last money i waste at this dump!!!!!
