I had a chili cheese burger with fries, onion rings and slaw. The hamburger patty was very small for 5 ounces. Chili was so so. Fries were very good. Avoid the slaw and onion rings. The sweet tea was some of the best I have had. The waitress was excellent. She made the experience bearable. As I stated in the... More

I don't know what happened, but the food quality has really gone down and the prices have gone up. I know the people that started the place and they were always and still are nice people and mean well, but I guess they had to get cheaper ingredients to keep up with competition. I was really disappointed when I bragged... More

We stopped on our way to the flea market and we were pleasantly surprised. It didn't look like much on the outside but we stopped anyways. The food was very good (we had breakfast) and the prices were very reasonable. They had a good selection and the service was excellent. We decided we would stop back by for lunch one... More

I've been here a few times because friends wanted to go. I, myself, will not be back. The place is run down and dirty. The seats in the booths are ripped and torn. Look around outside at all the trash and cigarette butts laying around. The last time I was here the eggs were tiny, like quail egg size, and... More

Food is very good and the service is excellent. The owners are very involved from cooking, serving and making sure customer's are completely satisfied with their food. Milkshakes are to die for...all hand scoped and countless varieties to choose from.

Be careful of add-on charges. Their meat and 3 is listed as $7.99 and includes a drink. I ordered a Hamburger Steak and told the waitress to make it fries and gravy on the steak and fries as my sides (after having been charged $2.00 for sauteed onion on a previous trip - I even stated: Make it so that...

As we entered the restaurant, I noticed a waitress standing behind the counter putting makeup on. We sat at a table and gave our order. We both ordered two eggs over medium with hash browns and bacon for me and sausage for my wife. When the order came, the eggs were very well done, the hash brown (like the ones... More

There are many restaurants in the area that fit the same pattern, Petes (several), Palmetto Fine Foods (several), The Clock (several) and Theo's. They started with sandwich fare and grilled items, and then branched out into "meat and three." Theo's is one with a pretty good deal with weekly specials for $7.95 that include the meat and three and tea.... More

Local restuarant with excellent prices and really good food. I am a southerner and a true grits lover...His grits are good as is the rest of the food. I only discovered Theo's this year and has been there quite a few time since and have taken friends with me. When one can get a full breakfast and a coffee for... More

This is a great spot - a diamond in the rough! Nothing fancy - just yummy old fashioned home cooking! Not like everyone's Mom can make! The ham sandwich is a personal favorite! They warm the bun and it melts in your mouth! The fried fish is quite delicious too! Stop by and give them a try! It's worth the... More
