Quick, friendly service. Got a couple of the pork chop sandwiches "all the way". Interesting combo of flavors unlike anything else. Any fan of the Andy Griffith Show has to visit this place.

This is where Andy Griffith used to come for lunch as a school boy. Back then, they served bologna sandwiches for 50cents. I don’t think menu has changed much and it has been open continuously for almost 100 years. For that reason alone, I loved...More
