Leaving Raleigh and looking for something beside "fast food" along I-40 and saw the sign decided to give a try. Sunday at opening time so wasn't crowded yet, but the regulars were starting to flock as we departed. GREAT SERVICE Mary Beth ! ! ! And the owner/mgr stopped by and was most gracious. Good food with real vegetables !... More

Had the best lunch yesterday. We went earlier than usual (11:45am). They weren't too busy. Service was quick and friendly. Food was also quick and tasty! We weren't disappointed at all!

This is a burger and fries joint, even though they have other entrees and salads. My favorite is the Apple Jack Grilled Chicken salad, though I treat myself when I can to their fries (and I am NOT a big french fry fan) and chocolate shakes. Their shakes are thick, creamy and made the old-fashioned way with milk, syrup and... More

I love diners like this and this one did not disappoint. It is close to the outlet stores in Mebane along with the usual chain restaurants. So tons of options of where to eat but I suggest giving this place a try. Came here with a group after a gymnastics meet. About 10 of us adults and kids but they... More

When I take a road trip, I like to eat in places with local color, good food and quick service. This restaurant scored high in all 3. I had a burger and my wife a grilled chicken wrap. Both came out cooked properly and fast thanks to our excellent server Julie. The Blue Ribbon had a well executed 50's diner... More

This is my 2nd time visiting this diner. The diner is oskool diner atmosphere. The greeter was very pleasant. The server was very attentive & gave good advice on the sauce. The chicken strip were tender & nicely cooked. My daughter said the burger was greasy. Fries & onion rings were tasty & cooked well. Overall experience was pleasant.

Nothing fancy, but it's still good. The atmosphere is nostalgic, that dinner car feel. The service is prompt and the wait person friendly and welcoming. Overall it's always a good experience, and especially if you are eating on the fly. Prices are reasonable too

Enjoyed this place for a late lunch/early dinner while shopping at the Tanger OutletCenter. Food was delicious and service was excellent.
