Fries pork chops, 2 eggs, and hash browns with onions, and a biscuit. They give you enough for two people.

While in western NC for a brief trip, my wife and I stopped in for breakfast. We were not disappointed! The restaurant was clean, people were very friendly, and the food was fantastic and reasonably priced! Will definitely eat here more often when in The area!

We go with our neighbors for an inexpensive breakfast at the Snack Bar eatery. I had a breakfast sandwich with egg and ham, but it was not good ham more like processed spam looking ham. The egg and wheat bread was fine but would not order or recommend their ham. My friend said her bacon was cooked perfectly. I tried... More

Don't let the outward appearance fool you! If you are looking for good Country Cooking, look no further! Go a little distance out of you way and you'll be glad you did! We had Country Ham and baked chicken and it was delicious!

Waitress very friendly & efficient. We ordered cube steak & macaroni & cheese. The Mac & cheese was so liquidfied, you could actually drink it through a straw. The fried steak was not done. It was raw Salisbury steak. I don''t think we will be returning.

My grandmother worked here when I was a child. I always loved going to the smallest and ordering outside from the car speakers. Snack burger is always my favorite. I had kids and they loved ordering from the car and the curb side service. They loved it as much as I did. They don't have that anymore. They don't have... More

Local and one of the best places to eat in Hickory. This is a great local attraction and excellent food. Special plates and sandwiches or breakfast certainly your choice.

Searched for a breakfast spot in Hickory. Found this on line and was satisfied as a good, but typical breakfast type spot.

We were looking for meat and country vegetables so we drove here to try. The name snack bar throws you off. This is a nice home style restaurant with a wide selection. Country style steak was good but not great. Mashed potatoes were instant but ok with the brown gravy. Northern beans seasoned with cloves which was unusual but ok.... More
