I have not eaten here in quite a while. But when I have it was so reasonably priced I thought they miss charged me. I found out they didn't and the food was very good to me. Try it if ever in Lincolnton.

Super old diner. Not in a good way. Kept alive by the local courthouse and shop owners that don't want to drive somewhere better. Nice folks though.

Be prepared for three things: 1. Best prices ever! 2. GREAT hot dogs and my husband loves the burgers and fried chicken (only on Thursdays) 3. A crowd in an old old place and no AC. Just know it is worth it! If you can't...More
