I'm originally from Aiken and this is one of my go-to places when I'm home! Love the service and the food is fantastic! Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes, Corner Burger, and a slice of strawberry cake!

It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
