Favorite foods transcend time

At the Mayberry Diner, they’ll greet you with a smile – and they mean it! But wait until you try the food. Start out with “Aunt B’s Breakfast,” a popular favorite at the Mayberry. It features a dish of eggs, hash browns and onions, scrambled together and topped with homemade sausage gravy & cheese. Or perhaps go for the “Late Day Special” and enjoy a hamburger, fries, and shake for $6.99 from 1-3 p.m.  There are choices for all appetites – “Healthy Starts,” protein breakfasts, wraps, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, and even Tammy’s parent’s homemade pies! They have it all.

For the past fourteen years, owners Scott & Tammy Super have been actively involved in providing tasty and healthy food at great prices to the diner community.  Tammy’s inspiration to join the restaurant industry began years ago when she worked as a server/waitress. She researched everything about running a business and taking that first step.

That first step happened in 2001 when Scott & Tammy opened up their first diner in Mayberry Square near Centennial Rd. in Sylvania. “The area was growing and the new Mayberry Plaza was built. It’s all about location,” they said.  Success followed, and, in 2006, they opened their second Mayberry Diner on Byrne (prior home to the restaurant, Jack’s Place), where they greeted a following of customers. “This location has a great south-end feel and all fell into place,” said Scott. The most recent Mayberry Diner opened in 2013 on Sylvania Ave. across from Davis College. “It was a no brainer when we picked this location,” both agreed. “We both knew we wanted to be along Monroe Street because it offers good access to all the roads.”

From the beginning, the Super’s wanted to create a comfortable dining experience suitable for all ages. “We want to be who we are and not something we are not. My motto is KISS…. Keep It Simple and Stupid. We are not reinventing the wheel,” said Tammy. All three locations feature an old-fashioned blue and white tiled counter with swivel chairs, booths, tables and chairs. A photo collage adds character and warmth to the dining room.

Aside from owning and managing three restaurants, Scott & Tammy are raising family and enjoying life. As time allows for vacations, the family enjoys Key West for some fun in the sun. So, what’s in store for the future of the Mayberry diners? “Our dreams and goals always include a goal of five … perhaps expanding and adding in the years ahead,” they shared.  Only good news for those of us who enjoy great food and great service.
