The recent heat may be part of the reason why blood (2 comments)

While enjoying your summer at Smith Mountain Lake, don't miss out on a blast from the past. Feel like you are taking a step back in time when you visit the Mayberry Drive-in & Diner.

The doors open at 6:30am and don't close until 10pm (11pm on weekends). So get there early to enjoy a delicious pancake and bacon breakfast in the 1950s-style (0 comments)
