Service was great! Wait staff must have stopped and asked if we needed refills ten times during our short lunch stop. Don’t stop if you want anything resembling healthy. My boyfriend seemed to enjoy the pork chop sandwich, but said he wouldn’t drive off the...More

The pork chop sandwich was quite good and worth a visit. The restaurant is quaint- still keeping in the tradition of the old days. We enjoyed the stop.

Old timey atmosphere with good & inexpensive breakfast. Great biscuits and gravy. Styrofoam plates were a bit odd, but with friendly service with ample portions. Check out Floyd's barbershop, Wally's service station and Mayberry courthouse while in town.

Pork Chop Sandwich was great. My wife got a hotdog. They don't sell fries, only chips. But, it is the kind of diner you remember from Mayberry show days. It is a must visit. Great memorabilia as well.

Inside space/tables are tight so I don't think pets would be a good idea for inside - as for outside, there is no patio.
