“Since the 1960’s The Snappy Lunch has been the subject of numerous news articles, television stories and national reviews. 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. ”

“Gondola’s is a wonderful place to eat, with a nice relaxing atmosphere and a lot of food for the money. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the owner is very courteous and welcoming. A well run restaurant. Mount Airy has a lot to offer & this restaurant is one of the best. Give them a try, you will not leave disappointed or hungry. The Owner makes his own desserts as well!!”
