The building inside and outside is run down, so if that bothers you, no need to stop. We had breakfast there this am based on some local referrals. Very good service and very good food. Biscuits and gravy plate was really good, hot and tasty,...More

Little side of the road diner with great sandwiches and breakfast. Nothing pre-made, so everything was hot. Great service, and no problem in splitting a dish with my partner. Would stop back in again for lunch, but not a place for a dinner meal. Great...More

My wife and I ordered a cheeseburger, onion rings, fries, and a jumbo hotdog. The hotdog bun was grilled with butter, delicious! The burger was a good, typical diner cheeseburger with a solid taste that was not at all disappointing, especially when you are craving...More

Stopped at Shirley's to try it out. I don't think we will try it again. Just had burgers, fries, onion rings and drinks. Burgers were just ok, the fries and rings nothing special. Prices were average for what you get. The diner is in need...More

The photo is much more pleasant than the actual restaurant. It's a dive but in the best sense of the word. The atmosphere is very bare-boned. There was a mother-daughter team working the entire restaurant. We erroneously thought they served breakfast all day so was...More

Shirley's is the local, down-home, visitor friendly place to get a burger, sandwich, fries, or breakfast. Family owned and operated, service is good, food is tasty, prices are reasonable.

This is a local small town diner... with Shirley at the helm.. taking orders.... busing tables.... prepping and cooking plus serving customers, she was a slowing moving phenomenon. By that I mean Shirley has one speed.... relaxed. Not much gets her stirred up... She pleasantly...More

This place is very popular among the locals and you will know why when you eat there - the burgers and fries are pure American perfection and you can top off your meal with some delicious ice cream. There's not a lot of seating inside...More

Response from HavocDog | Reviewed this property |
I highly doubt it due to the small, cramped nature of the place. Very difficult to maneuver around and through the tables/chairs. Not much space for a dog to sit/lay. It is pretty tight. But the food is good!

Early (5:30 or 6:00) until 2:00. They apparently have a big breakfast business.
