Celebrities are regularly seen visiting The Snappy Lunch to have their picture taken with Charles, share in the ambiance of the busy diner and/or just to enjoy a World Famous Pork Chop Sandwich of their own.”

“The Loaded Goat is a cross between sports bar with 8 TVs and a restaurant with fun food. They have the best burgers in NC. My favorite is the bacon, BBQ burger with goat cheese instead of pimento cheese. They have the best sweet potato fries and onion rings. We love going for lunch then walking the shops on Mount Airy Main Street. ”

“13 Bones first opened its doors on March 31, 2009. Its casual dining, home-town atmosphere is the result of five friends' dream turned reality. The name 13 Bones comes from the specialty baby back ribs. In order to be considered a full-rack, there must be 13 bones. In addition to ribs, the extensive menu also features steaks, chicken, seafood, pork and sandwiches as well as appetizers and a kids menu. With a focus on good food, good prices and good service, their goal is to make YOU happy. ”

“Google reviewer said: "Stopped by for brunch. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. I ordered the double California burger with a runny fried egg and a hot dog with chili, mustard, and onion. The burger was perfectly cooked. Perfect amount of grease and the burger itself was amazing. The hot dog was great as well, the chili was good, the bun tasted grilled a little, but overall I'd order it again."”
