We almost missed this place. The hotel lady said it was a half mile so we were looking for a place to turn around. Don't you know we turned into the parking for South 30. And we were glad we did. We were greeted right away and not stares at for not being a local. Got my coffee right away.... More

Stopped by for coffee and ended up having blueberry pie which was delicious. This diner is well worth a visit and only a few minutes off the interstate.

We stopped here kind of by accident. It was a small place on the side of the road not really near anything. We took a chance since there was no one in the parking lot when we arrived. It turned out to be a very friendly place with good lunch and very friendly down to earth staff. The service was... More

It is casual. Different coffee mugs like they're coming out of the back of the cabinet as though you have too many relatives over for the holidays. The service is casual in their delivery like you are sitting at their kitchen table. The food... seriously down home cooking. There is no fluff, no trying to appease the travelers driving on...

The best down home fresh made sausage I have ever tasted. Country home atmosphere where the owner makes you feel invited. Stuffed french toast was delightful. We will be back whenever we travel this way again.

My husband and I had lunch. I asked to substitute the French fries for macaroni salad--she brought me the French fries. I was good but nothing special.

Ceramic mugs all around but we were served coffee in Styrofoam cups. Eggs were runny, veggie omelette made with brown wilted spinach, very greasy. Both were sick after trying breakfast. Will NOT recommend. Seeing advertising signs brings back bad memories. Never returning.

The South 30 Diner is a smaller old fashion diner where they cook the food in front of you. They have tables which you could sit at or the counter with stools. Don't let the looks fool you. If the parking lot is full , there is still room inside. They have a lot of specials which you can choose... More
