Great stop for a quick bite. Food was delish. Milk shakes were yummy. Server was attentive and friendly. Clean as a whistle.

Yes that's right. Seven of us left plenty full for $70 including a nice 20% tip for our excellent server. Nice that the kids got free refills on their chocolate milk. This somewhat picky crowd got entrees and sides that were very good. Tea, coffee, waters were never empty. Everything was good and cooked as ordered.

We stopped in for lunch and right off the bat loved the place. Clean, very pleasant employees and the food looked amazing. Being from WI I was floored to see breaded cheese curds on the list, AND they were cooked to perfection!! The BBQ chicken, OMG, it was amazing and I can't wait to get back that way to have... More

After church, we decided to eat at Blue Ribbon Diner in Mebane, NC. It is easy to spot, it has a LARGE electronic sign. I ordered the Sunday Special: A Chicken Pie. The puff pastry on top with the veggies in a bowl was "mouth-watering". The server was quick, accurate and attentive. Since we didn't have an extended time, The... More

Leaving Raleigh and looking for something beside "fast food" along I-40 and saw the sign decided to give a try. Sunday at opening time so wasn't crowded yet, but the regulars were starting to flock as we departed. GREAT SERVICE Mary Beth ! ! ! And the owner/mgr stopped by and was most gracious. Good food with real vegetables !... More

Needs food upgrade. Boring. Maybe more cooking and less thawing. Standard sandwich fare ok but had better.

Had the best lunch yesterday. We went earlier than usual (11:45am). They weren't too busy. Service was quick and friendly. Food was also quick and tasty! We weren't disappointed at all!

This is a burger and fries joint, even though they have other entrees and salads. My favorite is the Apple Jack Grilled Chicken salad, though I treat myself when I can to their fries (and I am NOT a big french fry fan) and chocolate shakes. Their shakes are thick, creamy and made the old-fashioned way with milk, syrup and... More

I love diners like this and this one did not disappoint. It is close to the outlet stores in Mebane along with the usual chain restaurants. So tons of options of where to eat but I suggest giving this place a try. Came here with a group after a gymnastics meet. About 10 of us adults and kids but they... More

When I take a road trip, I like to eat in places with local color, good food and quick service. This restaurant scored high in all 3. I had a burger and my wife a grilled chicken wrap. Both came out cooked properly and fast thanks to our excellent server Julie. The Blue Ribbon had a well executed 50's diner... More
