Step back 50 years and enjoy a good old basic burger cooked right, fresh meat, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, what more could you ask for. Served up in a neat little diner supported by locals and tourist alike. Simple is best!

Great little burger joint fits the "Mayberry" theme perfectly. Real homemade burgers and fries for $5. Priced great. Tasted great. Everyone was friendly and the place very clean.

Cute little dinner we had lunch at while visiting Mt. Airy. The food was yummy ( we both had burgers) and the staff was friendly and attentive. Prices are good. Just a heads up, they do not accept credit/debit cards. They do have an atm.

Leon's Burger Express is a Diner. If a local hadn't told me they served breakfast I would have never known to go there from the name. But they serve breakfast and lunch all day long. The diner has booths and bar seating and offers eggs,...More
