Walk in. Greeted by friendly staff. See the retro decor and listen to the 50s music. Feels like an American restaurant is supposed to. Great burgers etc.

We stopped into this diner while visiting Marion, NC. The people were really nice. The food was good and the prices were great! They also have a wonderful apple pie with ice cream. Will definitely go again when traveling through NC.
