This place is no longer open. There seems to have been a fire, which is a shame since there is also a drive in theater.

The nostalgic diner has the best breakfast in Moneta. When we leave Smith Mountain Lake to go home we always stop at the diner for breakfast. The food is good and the service is friendly.

We ate breakfast there and it was good. Not a ton of choices, but we all enjoyed what we ordered. The inside of the diner is like stepping back to the 50's and 60's.
