“Holston's Restaurant- Lunch and Dinner - A local favorite serving burgers, fajitas, soups, salads, and a nice selection of entrees. Stop by for some appetizers and full bar. Our favorite is the open face roast beef sandwich served with mashed potatoes and gravy. Express lunch served Tuesday through Friday, 11 am until 5 pm. If the parking lot is full, there is additional parking at the back of the restaurant and if the Sun Trust Bank is closed, additional parking is availble in their lot. ”

“Great food in a 50's-inspired environment. Try the elk or bison burger! And don't even think about leaving with getting a handmade milkshake or sundae! Sunday's are the busiest days but any wait ends up being pretty short. The service is fast and efficient and the staff are some of the nicest you will find anywhere; many have been with The Diner for 10 years or more!”
