Snappy Lunch

Snappy Lunch is a diner that first opened in 1923. It is the only remaining business in town that was mentioned on The Andy Griffith Show. As a child, Andy would stop by for a fried baloney sandwich or a hot dog. The diner's specialty is the "World Famous Pork Chop Sandwich." The griddle is by the front window so people waiting outside can see.
