Any of their pies are excellent but Burton's is known for their White Pie. Don't wait to order pie after your lunch or dinner, order it first and eat it first.

Burton's is one of our favorite places to eat. We have eaten here often on Sunday after church. All of their menu items are good but we especially love the country fried steak, the fried chicken, and their pies.

Trip advisor had great reviews so I had to stop and check it out. I got a burger and my husband had chopped steak. Both were the same fake hamburger patty. Mine on a bun, his with mashed potatoes. He said the potatoes were good. With all the good reviews, I was expecting real meat. As for the famous White... More

Burton's was one of my favorite places to eat when I was in college, and it's just as good now, years later! Great salads, burgers and specials. My Mom always LOVED the chicken livers: tender inside and crispy out. My advice is to save room for Burton's famous White Pie! It's awesome, whether you eat a slice...or three!

Had dinner and the chicken livers were fantastic. I really wanted raisin pie, but they were out. However, the cherry pie was wonderful.

The 'white pie' was no big deal and not worth driving out of your way for a slice. The wife and I drove over for a slice (plus some chocolate peanutbutter pie) after reading TA recommendations. Don't get me wrong, neither slice was below average, just not a big deal as portrayed by other guests and signage on the restaurant.

Good family restaurant. We had the steak sandwich the 1st visit and it was really good, could have used a little more steak, but otherwise no complaints. Waitresses were very friendly and on top of their tables.

I met my cousin and her husband for lunch at Burtons. When we were younger our families would eat at Burtons. I especially loved the coconut cream pie with meringue..yesterday I had the chicken and dumplings and they were excellent. Of course I also had the coconut cream pie. I was not disappointed. My cousin had a variety of sides,... More
