We stopped in Lebanon overnight on a trip from Chicago to Dallas. Since this restaurant had good reviews, we stopped there. The restaurant was clean and bright and the waitress was friendly. My friend is a vegetarian but this restaurant has very few options for him, so he had an omelet. I had a BLT sandwich with fries. The food... More

My wife and I stopped here while we were touring the Ozarks to view the fall foliage. The restaurant was very clean and the service was exceptional. I noticed that the staff and many of the customers knew each other by name showing they were regulars here. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We ate lunch here and the... More

We stopped here on our way home from traveling. We wanted something besides fast food. We were pleased to have found this place. The staff was friendly, service was fast, food was fresh and generous servings and the facility is clean and cheerful. They were able to make my food to order per my diet restrictions too. Wish I would... More

Originally a Country Kitchen, Elm Street Eatery has become a fixture in the community. They are located at one of the busiest intersections in town. They often wish residents a Happy Birthday or Anniversary on their sign out front. It's nice to see locals coming together and feeling at home here. For out-of-towners this is honestly just another typical diner/restaurant... More

Great food and fast friendly service. Nice to see an option of choosing a ¼ or ½ pound burger. I would recommend them to anyone.

With this being the #1 rated restaurant on Tripadvisor in Lebanon, I was disappointed. I had much higher expectations. The food was okay but not 5 stars. I could have used more seasoning on the fried okra. The rolls were flat and bland tasting. I had the chicken fried chicken which was hot and crispy so that was good. The... More

Stopped here on our way home from a business meeting. Easy access in town. Google maps had some difficulty with the location but the manager provided directions on the phone. Friendly service, great food. Appears to be very popular with locals with many customers being greeted by name by the manager/host/cashier.

Thank Dennis G
