Do you like home cooking with fresh food made daily? Well, you’re in luck because C & A Family Diner located at 2233 NC Hwy. 86, Yanceyville offers a wide menu of delectable home cooked food since opening January 5.

The diner is now under new management courtesy of Carl Boyd, who is an operations manager at Inframark in Danville and an eight-year veteran from the USMC. “I had the opportunity of buying the business and felt like it was something I wanted to do,” he says.

Boyd is clearly a “people person” and says opening the diner (across from Goodwill) is the fulfillment of a long-time dream. “I grew up in Yanceyville and am a Bartlett Yancey Senior High School graduate. I live right across the street at County Home Road so it’s very easy for me to be popping in and out of the diner to help out,” he explains. “I want to offer an option to fast food with some real down home food at competitive prices. This is traditional food like burgers and hot dogs plus daily special plates. We offer breakfast food all day long because many people love it!”

Boyd is eager for the diner to be a part of the community and encourages those conducting fundraisers to get in touch with him to see if there is a way the diner can help promote it.

Food is made fresh every day and he stresses that food/supplies are bought locally and he wants to work with local vendors.

The diner is available for rental booths/tables for special occasions or parties.

He is considering offering limited catering in the future once things get going.

“I also offer free coffee to members of the EMS, law enforcement, as well as veterans.”

He plans to hold a Grand Opening a little later down the road with specials and door prizes.

Special requested food can be made to order if supplies are on hand.

He will be conducting a Brunswick Stew in front of the diner on Saturday, February 4, with stew ready for pick up around noon. Price: $7.50 per quart. Call for pre orders at 336-933-4224.

Country style food and breakfast are not the only goodies on the menu. The long list of side dishes include items appealing to young people such as chili cheese fries, Mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, onion rings, etc.

How about some pinto beans and homemade cornbread or cole slaw? Hamburger steak/gravy with sides and hot dogs are everyday specials.

Day of the week specials include: Monday with meatloaf and sides; Tuesday with Chicken and Dumplings; Wednesday with fried pork chop with sides; Thursday with loaded taco salad; Friday with spaghetti; and Saturday with pulled BBQ.

Homemade pies and cakes provide some tasty desserts.

The list goes on and on.

The diner is open six days a week Monday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. with dine in or carry out available. Pre-orders can be placed at 336-933-4224.

The normal lunch hours are 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. with the dinner menu from 3 – 7 p.m.

A kids menu will be coming soon.

His staff includes manager Heather Hill; Tiffany Church, cook/waitress; and Linnie Foster, cook/waitress.
