We were in town for Mayberry Days and this was our second trip to Snappys and as before the porkchop sandwich was great at a great price. Four of us are for less then $25 dollars.

The name goes with the services. We had a great lunch. The food is good and they sure are snappy with serveing you. They do close earlier. So double check the time before heading out for the day. And they do get busy.

We were welcomed as soon as we stepped inside, like we were family. Their smiles were genuine and their service couldn't be more responsive and friendly. Our waitress was right out of Mayberry and would have fit right in with Andy Griffith's show. We had...More

Inside space/tables are tight so I don't think pets would be a good idea for inside - as for outside, there is no patio.
