This diner has amazingly delicious food, great service, and a quaint, nostalgic atmosphere! I certainly understand why Southern Living magazine selected Smith Street Diner as the “Best Diner in North Carolina!”

Paul Whittington

Very nice, friendly place with excellent service. There were customers of all ages, from families to couples, who were obviously on a dinner date, to seniors and single diners. A universal place that appeals to every generation is hard to find nowadays. If you happen to be in the area, give it a shot. You won’t regret it.
