Okay, I love many southern foods but when I want regular veggies I do not want them to have sugar in them! I have a veggie plant here, sting beans, slaw and something else. Everything seemed unusually sweet so I asked if it was the type of veggie and they told me they add sugar. Sugar in string beans? Ugh.... More

Wife and I went there this morning. We got the Western omelets which were pretty good...we also got the hash browns which were not bad, but I think Waffle House does a better job of making hash browns though (if there's any consolation to this Bubba's diner does not make good hash browns either). This is southern simple fare ...... More

Good but very limited menu. If you enjoy a nice simple breakfast, this is the place. It's always crowded, a good sign.

Homemade Southern Style Lunch that will satisfy your cravings! I wish they were open later so we could frequent it more.

This is one of my favorite places to go in Sumter. The atmosphere is laid back and the waitstaff are great. The food is always great and very affordable. I usually get two meats and 3 sides. I love their chicken tetrazzini, but you really can't go wrong with anything here. They don't take debit/credit cards, so it's strictly cash... More

Just a little small town type diner. I've only been at breakfast time, and its your typical breakfast fare. The atmosphere is pleasant, usually and older client base who are locals who all know each other. The biggest problem is that they are cash only, which is darn big issue if you ask me.

This is a reasonably priced family restaurant, that serves up the best country cooking in Sumter. Prices are great, servings are generous,service is awesome and food is delicious. You can choose an entrée from daily specials and then add sides. We have never been disappointed. The only negative I can think of, is that they are only open on weekdays... More

This is a great little locally owned diner. They specialize in country style cooking for breakfast and lunch. The portions are just the right size and the price is reasonable. Be sure to bring cash as they don't accept cards or checks.
