Eclectic funky little comfort food joint. Food is excellent and staff is very friendly. If your looking to get a finger on the local pulse in Erwin, this is a good stop. My only complaint is the lack of a fountain drink machine, but that's a small price to pay I think.

Toby knows your name when you walk in the door or he will learn it before you leave. Great burgers and sandwiches and Mrs. Donna always has a homemade side to accompany any meal. Daily specials. They also do catering. A most stop in Erwin!

I just went into Toby's new location on Jackson Love Highway and was pleased to see the same hometown ambience that Toby is known for. I ordered the Chicken Salad Sandwich and it was delicious. Right amount of mayonnaise and grapes and pecans. I will definately stop here again.

Toby has moved several times during the last few years. He is an excellent cook who runs a tight ship and the food has been consistently good. The new location is on Jackson Love Highway across the street from Dari-Ace .It is a small delicatessen style restaurant which seats about twenty customers. Toby always has a daily special. Monday is... More

Erwin is a small town with only a few options other than the normal fast food joints. Tobys has been in business for awhile serving burgers, fries, assorted sandwiches, soups and salads. I've had a few different things from there, but my favorite thing by far is his cheeseburgers. They are delicious. Even better if you make it a bacon... More
