The chicken livers were very good and the serving size was plentiful. The vegetables were hit and miss. Potato salad and corn was good but the macaroni cheese was dry. Ate there at night for supper and the inside temperature was cold and uncomfortable. Waitress...More

Small diner less than a mile from city center. Food was fresh. Large selection of meats and sides. Meat loaf and grilled pork chop were excellent. Our first visit but we will return.

We stopped in as we were shopping in Anderson and as a first time visit we were amazed at the quality of the food. We will be back many times in the future

The thing about Roy's is how you get treated. He's been there every time I've been in to eat and always greets the patrons and asks how your meal was. You don't get service like that everywhere. The waitresses are usually friendly, though sometimes a...More
