Went here with my mother after going to the Farmer's Market. No wait and food came fast. Their biscuits are HUGE and delicious! Will split next time I go. Good atmosphere and Greensboro feel.

Food is fresh, ample and tasty. We sat at the counter and the waitress was attentive and efficient. My omelet was delicious and my wife's breakfast was good too. Biscuit was good. I'll be back to try the rest of the menu.

Eating here is OK. Tried their chicken fried steak. Pay at the cashier when finished. Parking lot is at their side.

All I have heard is how good the Thursday Fried Chicken special is at Smith Street Diner. Well I tried it and to be honest it wasn't my thing. I will get a lot of ridicule for this statement but, I like my fired chicken...More
