Fantastic breakfast food. Home fries and eggs were fresh and well cooked. Small short order style restaurant with great staff. Very friendly and fast service. A local favorite with many. Breakfast or lunch, it's worth your while to visit.

Food was awesome, fresh, hot, cooked perfectly. Service was a little iffy.....only got 1 refill on my coffee and had to request it more than once, other requests had to be made more than once also.

We found Shirley's on a road trip. Small family diner, cute place, packed at our lunch time visit. Service was good, simple country cooking serving breakfast and lunch until 2pm. Will stop again when in the area.

Good old-fashioned home-style cooking. This is a family-run business with lots of good people. It's a local favorite. Fantastic food. Not for those counting calories.

I had breakfast on a recent Saturday morning. the place was packed with a standing room only wait line. The eggs, grits, and everything else tasted like an old southern family breakfast. The girls/wait staff are super sweet and friendly! Their southern accent was charming. One bad part, I stopped by a couple of weeks later on a Sunday, but... More

Friendly service good eggs and grits. Home fries seem like limp potato chips, could use seasoning and longer in the fryer. Southern atmosphere.
