Bell's has been a favorite of mine for most of my life. Every time I'm home I have to stop and get a burger. Delicious food that I can't resist.

Handmade burger DELICIOUS. Cheese fries are not on a diet so share with a friend but so good. Like mama would make! Staff is friendly and accommodating. They work tirelessly to get orders out. Be sure to take cash because they don't take credit cards or debit cards. Always a go to place for FHU Alumni and students. Walk up... More

The staff are all friendly and work together to get orders taken and then delivered to your table as quickly as possible. The food is prepared when you ordered so everything is fresh. It all tasted really good and was served at the proper temperature. I've eaten here several times and know that I'll be back for more.

Known for its burgers, Bells is a locally owned Diner that's a favorite around this area. Don't skip desert either! They have some amazing milkshakes and sundaes!

Bells has the appearance of a 1950s diner with a walk-up, takeout window next to the front door. Its hamburger frequently gets rated as the best in the state and it is hard to argue with that rating. The hamburgers are served fresh off the griddle with all the extras you want. It is easily the juiciest hamburger I have... More

We live in middle Tennessee and drove about 2 hours just to eat at Bell's. The food was good, but we could have gotten the same thing at Snow White Drive In in Lebanon, Tennessee about 10 minutes from our house. The service regarding our food and drink refills were fine, but the staff wasn't your typical "southern diner" friendly.... More

Bells has been here almost as long as the town of Henderson!! Maybe not, but it is a place that locals go to and that FHU students who return to visit campus go back to.

Bell's is a Henderson favorite--delicious burgers, delectable fries, ample beverages--and terrific prices! The wait staff treats you like family, and the food comes quickly. Light years better than any fast food fare. Beware, though, they only accept cash. If I had one criticism, it would be the décor--it is dingy and dated and could really use updating.

This is a popular spot for the locals where they'll always have a nice juicy cheeseburger that'll make your mouth water. Fries are good too! The restaurant is older so it has a vintage feel like the old drive ups of the past.
