A friend who went there often, took me to Open Kettle. I was skeptical from reading the reviews here but my experience was quite different then the reviews. We had "Miss Ellie's Burger " - It was so big that I had to squeeze it in my mouth and tasty too. They give you plenty of food to eat and... More

Trying to find a restaurant to prepare food for our cardiac restricted diet is really challenging in small towns. But the wait staff was very nice.

The food is just OK. It's. It not the worst but by far not the best. I've been for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's just not for me. The cheeseburgers are decent, but that's about all I can say. It's not the fastest service either.

An OLD staple in Roxboro, it's a good place to socialize with family and people from Roxboro. Service is nice but slow. Don't go if you are in a rush. Decor is the same as its been for decades I think. Has an old diner feel. Decent country food. Regular rices for a diner.

Excellent food and service any day of the week. Favorite is Thursday special Chicken livers. Parking is small and difficult to get to and from road.

Food was extremely greasy, service terrible. Ordered simple breakfast platter which came swimming in oil. Cost was high for what I got. My drink was empty when the cook brought my food out and waitress walked by several times and never offered to refill it until I was finished eating including the glass of ice I was given along with...

Parking lot is usually full, I considered this to be a good sign.....went for breakfast on Saturday....homey little place. They seemed to be short help, the waitress was frazzled, and very much distracted by the fact that her husband and child had decided to eat breakfast there as well. The food was cooked to order, but not good...I mean who... More

I have been to the open kettle several times. The food has always been very good and plenty for the price. The service is very good and friendly.
