My Wife and I found this place about a month ago. We go back once a week now. Always are greeted and waited on very quickly. Waitstaff are the best around! The food is always fresh and delicious.

Every time I visit my family in Knightdale we have to go to Hwy 55 for burgers and shakes. Heather and the whole team there are so friendly and attentive. My Mom and Brother eat there every Friday night and Heather knows exactly what they want so they don't even need to order. I am there maybe once a month... More

Andy's - Hwy. 55 has been here in Knightdale for a while. It is known for its old time burgers, but the chicken sandwiches are great also,.

We love the Cheesesteak Combo, either with fries or the golden onion rings. This is one of the very best operated Hwy 55's, which used to be known as Andy's Cheesesteaks. The burgers are tasty as well and Heather and all the other workers are great. The cooking staff rocks! Great oldies music and delightful comfort food make this a... More

The family went to Andys on Saturday lunch. Restaurant was busy and they cleaned a table for us. Service was top notch and friendly. As always the food was awesome. You cannot beat the custard to top the meal off.

Hi! I wanted to sincerely apologize for the bad experience you had—I assure you that 30-minute ticket times are unacceptable for us, and that we do care when our guests are forced to wait for too long. This incident has been shared with the staff as an opportunity to get better, and I do thank you for your business and... More

This is one of our regular restaurants we eat at as a family. Went there tonight and had great, fast service and the food was good. They have custard and have a different featured flavor every day. Although they are known for cheeseburgers and cheese steaks, they have an excellent grilled chicken salad I would recommend.

They have now rebranded themselves as HWY 55. It is a typical throwback 1950's style menu burger and cheeseteak place. The food is cooked to order and is always fresh. We've had just about everything on the menu and it is always good. The staff is always friendly and attentive. It is a great place to go for a quick... More
