They say a must do, but understand that being snappy means limited menu and not so great quality. Quick and easy is their Motto. Decor includes lots of pictures of Andy and the gang, but is otherwise very plain and simple. They do a lot...More

A good lunch destination if you want a sandwich, hot dog, or Snappy's highly advertised pork chop sandwich for a quick lunch while taking in "Mayberry". Right in the heart of the bustling downtown businesses, the place isn't fancy, a typical sandwich shop, but the...More

This restaurant is small, and always crowded especially on Friday and Saturday. They are not opened on Sunday. Pork Chop all the way, and their breaded burgers cannot be beat.

The claim to fame is a mention in The Andy Griffith Show and a breaded pork chop sandwich that is a must. The prices are stuck somewhere in the 1980s. Actually, it reminds me of the Woolworth's lunch counter of my youth. Nostalgic is right.

Great food , great service, verry reasonably priced, lot of history here...we were a little hesitant as we arrived because it was 15 minutes before closing....we were welcomed, assured it was fine, seated, promptly served :)

Very good food. Selection is simple but the food is so good. Very busy but the service or kindness doesn't lax. Highly recommended

This diner is not the exact one in the Andy Griffith show; however, it has been in operation since the 1920s so Andy probably ate here and drew inspiration from it. There are pictures relating to Andy Griffith and celebrities on the wall, but there...More

This is, of course, the Snappy Lunch of Andy Griffith fame. My wife and I stopped by for breakfast. She had sausage, eggs and toast, and I had a sausage biscuit, and we both had water to drink. The bill came to just over $6....More

Yes, it is made on site. It is made from cabbage and they have their special sauce.

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.
