For a one hole restaurant, on a one hole Main Street, in a one hole town, you can't find a better breakfast or lunch than the Snappy Lunch. Opened in 1920, Andy Griffith dine there often growing up. Mentioned twice on The Andy Griffith Show, you'll find they serve up the best pork chop sandwich ever. Same pork chop for... More

The pork chop sandwich is the specialty of this place. Cooking is done in full view. Get there early or be prepared to stand in line. We enjoyed getting sandwiches to go and took them down the block to the nice brick pavilion at the other end of street (with wrought iron tables and chairs).

Seemed like the place to go for lunch for a first timer to Mount Airy. We got the last table for 2 when we arrived and by the time we left the line for seats was all the way up the hill outside the restaurant. I'm not sure why you'd get anything but their famous pork chop sandwich (and there... More

My wife's grandfather was recently in town (Charlotte) from Maine. He grew up watching the Andy Griffith show so we all thought he would enjoy a trip up to Mt. Airy. Upon our arrival, many on the street told us to grab a bite to eat at Snappy Lunch. We had 12 people in our group and had lunch for... More

The service was great I think all three girls ask us if we needed anything else about three different times. The Pork chop sandwich was excellent. Everyone was enjoying themselves like a country restaurant. I enjoyed everything. Thank you to the staff everyone was great.

I came into town for a quick visit and everyone told me that I had to visit snappy lunch. Tried out the pork chop sandwich all the way. It came out really quick and was very enjoyable! Hope to get to go back again soon.

The Chamber advises us to get the famous pork sandwich here and we were not disappointed in the least. Upon ordering I noticed that the sandwich consisted of a pork chop, chili, Cole slaw, and tomato. I had some misgivings because I was not sure what these would taste like together. I got my husband's without the slaw but mine... More

Back in the '60, I could recall an occasional mention of the Snappy Lunch on The Andy Griffith Show. It was presented as just a Home Town Diner in Mayberry where all the locals went. I've been to Mt. Airy many times over the years and at one time had a major customer here. For some reason, I never got... More
