Although the menu is limited this is a great place to stop for a meal. Beware of the lines that may go for 1/2 block! The tenderloin is outrageous. Lots of memorabilia to see while dining. Don't miss it!

Everything I read said you had to have the pork chop sandwich at Snappy Lunch if you are visiting Mt Airy. They were great. The staff is really friendly. It was also fun to watch them cook on the grill through their front window.

Not for the health minded, but great breaded porkchop sandwich with tomato, slaw, chili and mustard. Ground steak is also really good. Sit at a both, bar, or in the newer edition. Fun seeing picture of old Mayberry and of course the Andy Griffith Show.

Small somewhat cramped setting but truly has a down home family atmosphere with the true feeling and hospitality of Mayberry. Great sausage biscuits and just a place you need to visit. Andy Griffith did.

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.
