Very good hand dipped ice cream and milkshakes. This place was BUSY! They had a large menu ranging from sandwiches and fries to several desserts.

You will be amazed at the size of the menu and the quality of the food. I grew up eating here and I always visit if I'm in town. Sandwiches, sides, plates, desserts, and ice cream all are so good! One of the few cash only restaurants left but trust me it's worth a stop at the ATM before visiting.

Stopped in for lunch and found there was a very long line with only two people taking your order. On top of that half of the dinning area had been taken over by larger birthday party, so seating was very limited. I had to basically take my order to go as there were no seats available. When I got home... More

Walking in to the Speedy Chef is like stepping back in time. The food is good and the decore reminds you of days gone by. Nothing fancy, selection is great and very affordable!

Went there for lunch while visiting relatives. Really liked it. Huge menu, nice employees, great prices and tasty food. Pork chop sandwich was huge and really good. Fresh made chips with ranch dressing were, too. Chocolate pie made the trip complete. I recommend taking any negative reviews with a grain or two of salt.

I eat here a few times a month. The food is pretty good overall. I think their fish platters beat out any seafood around. Love the Carolina burger, it's a big tasty burger. Their pork chop sandwich is big also, it's bland in my opinion, need to be breaded with House Autry pork breaded and then it would be perfect.... More

Speedy chef has a huge menu ranging from delicious burgers to healthy, fresh tasting chicken wraps. There is always something to fit your mood, whether you want classic American food or something healthier. Whatever I get, I always top it off with a milkshake, they're the best in town. Everything is tasty, so you really can't go wrong!
