Good food, good service, good value. You gotta go there. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but once you try it I'm sure you'll go back.

We ate here 4 years ago as we exited the Skyline Drive starving! We didn't want fast food and wandered into this little place in the old downtown. The staff was so nice and friendly and the food was so good that when we were headed to get on the Skyline Drive this time we hoped the diner would still... More

Stopped into this spot for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised. As others have noted, it doesn't look like much from the outside but it was a great experience. We enjoyed a good lunch with very friendly staff. We sampled the pancakes (kids' lunch pick), biscuits with sausage gravy and a blt. All were solid and the service was great.... More

The C&S Diner is located on Business 33 about two blocks from Rt 340/33 interchange going towards the river in Elkton. It is a very non-descript building that would be easy to miss. The only reason we saw it was because we turned around in the parking lot across the road while looking for some place to eat and happen... More

We were looking for breakfast a little later in the morning and, beside McDonalds, this really was the only place open. Average, hearty, country fare. Reasonably priced. Staff was very friendly, service somewhat slow, but there was another group ahead of us, so we didn't mind waiting.

After a day and night of heavy fog and rain in Shenandoah we decided to get back into "civilization" for a few hours. Saw the diner and decided to go in for a coffee. Felt a bit out of place amongst the local patrons, but our waitress: Megan was very friendly. We decided to have some breakfast as well. Huge... More

Down home food at down home prices. Redneck ambiance. You just feel comfortable and unbothered. Small town with small town feel.

We have visited this diner twice. The first time the food was okay and the staff pleasant although the wait time for the food was too long. The second time, I ordered an omelet that came about five minutes after the others had their food. My son ordered ham with his eggs and it was like shoe leather. My husband... More

This tiny little jewel in Elkton is hard to find but well worth the effort. The decor seems to be all about baskets and was filled with locals when we walked in. Never were we made to feel like outsiders. The food was freshly made and specially tailored to accommodate my food allergies. The service was wonderful and the prices... More

My father in law is a lot more adventurous than I am and this place is a local joint without a doubt. We were staying at the Massanutten Resort and on the way out my father in law wanted to stop somewhere local since according to him that is where the best food is. This is normally true but it...
