The very best patty melt from a grill. Cheese that was ideal and onions grilled to perfection. The pickle on the side was perfection. I'm so glad that I crossed the street to eat here.

Everyone told us we needed to try their famous burgers and they are FANTASTIC! For $3.50 (yes, only $3.50) I haven't had a burger like that since I was a kid. They also make home made potato chips that are also FANTASTIC!

Great cheeseburgers and seasoned fries! Yum yum! Not a huge eating area but good burgers and fries. Also offer vegetables but didn't eat them!

Step back 50 years and enjoy a good old basic burger cooked right, fresh meat, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, what more could you ask for. Served up in a neat little diner supported by locals and tourist alike. Simple is best!

Ordered California cheeseburger. It was made fresh. Cooked perfectly. Food arrived quickly. Staff was friendly. Got fried okra for my side. It was hot and delicious as well.

Great little burger joint fits the "Mayberry" theme perfectly. Real homemade burgers and fries for $5. Priced great. Tasted great. Everyone was friendly and the place very clean.

This is a typical small town diner in "Mayberry." Stools and booths fill up fast and this diner is open early for breakfast and lunch. The service was friendly and pretty fast considering the cook (Leon??) made my burger from a ball of fresh ground...More

Leon's has great food. Nothing better than a burger that tastes like a burger. Breakfast is also worth trying. Everyone is nice. Seems like they want to be where they are.

Cute little dinner we had lunch at while visiting Mt. Airy. The food was yummy ( we both had burgers) and the staff was friendly and attentive. Prices are good. Just a heads up, they do not accept credit/debit cards. They do have an atm.
