If the Rendezvous Diner feels like home, that's because it used to be one — the log cabin was built in 1909 as a private residence. Now, it's a cozy restaurant with retro décor and hearty, traditional diner food such as burgers, fried chicken, meatloaf, omelets, and biscuits and gravy. Cliff Morang, who's been serving at the diner since it opened 11 years ago, says it's a favorite with locals and tourists alike.

Why is the food so good?
It's because of Pauline's [Merrill, the owner] eye for detail in making sure that everything is consistent and things are made from scratch. All the soups are homemade. We don't open cans.

What are the customer favorites?
Our peach, blackberry and cherry cobblers. People get their cobbler fix anytime they're in Greer. They talk about how flaky the crust is, and that it's not too sweet, not too sour.

What do you love most about the diner?
The staff — we all have fun working here. We try to keep things lighthearted and happy and make sure everyone has good service. We want people to feel like they're sitting in their own home.

The diner is famous for its meatloaf. What makes it so good?
It's homemade, right here, and we use fresh herbs. People also love our red chile and our green chile. We're so close to the New Mexico border, so we buy our Hatch chiles there.

—Kayla Frost
